Question about Maytag EPIC MFW9700S Front Load Washer
We have a Maytag Epic Z front load washing machine that is making a loud metallic noise during the spin cycle. The noise migrates radially around the tub as the drum spins. It sounds like pocket change making a trip between the drum and tub (could be a nut or bolt too....who knows). The noise is not in a fixed location so I'm sure it's not a bearing or pump issue yet. Is there a way to seperate the inner basket from the outer tub on a front loader to remove this foreign object?
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.

Did you ever find out how to separate the tub and basket on your maytag washer? I have exactly the same problem.

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.
