Maytag Top Loader Thumps When In Spin Cycle

My classic Maytag washer makes a extreme thumping noise when it's in spin cycle. It fills with water fine, and washes the clothes fine.
It even spins fine until toward the end of the cycle. Then it makes this incrediable thumping sound. The outter case of the machine doesn't vibrate or shake, just the tub. I tried rearranging the load etc. but this does not help. Outside of this, the washer runs good, and cleans the clothes.

I'm not really sure what the model number is, the washer is over 36 years old. My wife and I got this the year we were married.

Any suggestions short of replacing this machine ? Thanks.....

My guess is that one of the three counterweights have separated from their support. Probably rusted away.
36 years is quite a feat. Today's machines would be lucky to 1/3 of that life.
Sounds like its time to go shopping.

Won't start


if it filled proplerly and won't start now, it sounds like the door switch is broken, there could be something wrong with the rest of the electrical systems, however i would suggest the switch first. If there is a lot of noise like its trying to run, then its probably your transmission.

Rattling noise during spin cycle


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Thumping sound at the end of spin cycle.


Rankine, sounds more like a worn drive block that sits under the basket. Usually the brake will not make a thumping sound. Attached is a couple of pictures. Check this out first...Catriver..post back.
