It is your main bearing, I don't recommend doing it yourself. You will need a special spanner wrench that you'll use only once. To see an exploded view go to Sears Parts

Maytag legacy series washer

The drive motor which spins the drum is connected to the drum by a rubber belt. Sounds like the belt is burned through. Make sure you can spin the inside tub by hand to verify that the tub can turn freely before you replace the belt. The hum is from the drive motor just spinning freely.

If this sound starts slow and gets faster till its helicopter sounding you probly have a verry worn spot on the drive belt when that spot goes around the pully it will thump the faster ti spins the more frequent the sound If you tilt the washer back you should be able to see the belt to examine it if this the problem
replace the belt
Hope this helps

I have a maytag legacy series, toploading washer. It does fine, until it spins...a very loud screaching sound. Could this be a belt?

most likely your problem is in the pump either the pump itself is bad or there is something jammed in it, remove and inspect pump replace with new one if necessary.
