Question about Maytag SAV3655A Top Load Washer
Whenever the tub turns a loud noise accompanies the movement. The noise sounds like something rubbing a belt and is always the same pitch and volume. How can I fix?
The adjitator transmission is probably shot ;o(

This is an indicator that the helical-drive/brake package assembly needs servicing.
At this point in the machine's life, it is best to have the transmission evaluated, snubber pads replaced, and the brake package competently serviced by a Maytag Tech.
This is a complete disassembly process wherein several special tools are required to disassemble and reassemble the machine.

You better not to separate the inner and outer tubs as it's quite a job and takes a lot of effort.
Try to remove the heater on the very bottom of the front half of the outer tub. From outside it looks like an oval metal piece with a terminal on each side, a nut (or screw) in the center and a plug with 2 wires coming to it. UNPLUG THE WASHER as the heater is connected to the hot wire all the time.
Remove the nut (or screw) in the center of the heater and pull the heater out. Now you have a nice opening in the bottom between the tubs. There is a heater bracket, made of a thick wire inside. Make sure not to damage it when trying to remove whatever there is inside. Make sure the heater is aligned in the bracket when assembling it back together.

I had the same rattling during spin cycle of my Maytag 4000 series front loading washer. Noticed you could gently pull back on the rubber gasket between the tub and where the door seals. There was a quarter resting against the fixed ring the tub spins in. Rattle no more. If only I could find the solution for affording a trip to Europe as easily.
