SOURCE: Squeak upon spinning
Hi, I wanted to comment on this because I have the Majestic MJ9200 Washing machine front load for the RV. I am having the exact same problem and I cannot use my machine at this time. This is NOT an unbalanced load problem. An unbalanced load will cause a loud banging noise because the drum is off balance. There is something wrong inside your machine. Mine never had this problem before either and an unbalanced load does not cause this horrible screech while on the spin cycle. My machine like yours made the noise only on certain spin speeds, high 1500 rpm spin the first time and when I adjusted the spin cycle just to see what happened it stopped making that horrible noise. I washed another load and it began that same screetch while spinning and it was then in all RPM ratios available on my model.
My husband took the top off the machine and could not see anything evident but when looking into the front of the machine we could tell that is seems the interior drum is much looser in the washing machine than in the dryer. There are two drums on the front load. A larger outer drum and a smaller inner drum. The inner drum is what is looser in our machine and the noise is a very loud screetch while spinning the water out of the clothes.
Is your machine under any kind of warranty? Mine is not and I am waiting to get it fixed.
Good luck on getting yours fixed and perhaps we can both help each other out on this one although we have different brands of machines...

The loud squeak at the end of the spin cycle is usually attributed to a worn snubber ring and/or brake assembly. You cannot
lubricate the snubber to get rid of the noise. In fact, you may damage
the washer if you do. A small amount of corn starch can be sprinkled
under the bottom tub support where the snubber ring is to get rid of
most noise related problems (this will be the bottom round plate where
it meets the casing of the machine). A worn snubber will also cause some vibration or out of balance problems. The brake tends to glaze over after it has become worn and will squeak or cause sudden jerking (causing movement of the washer) went the spin cycle stops. I
would recommend replacing the following parts:
Brake Stator: 1057484 Price: $7.45
Brake Rotor and Lining: 1032674 Price: $16.70
Snubber: 1055142 Price: $4.35
Brake Removal Kit: 997909 Price: $99.40*
*Brake removal tool is required in order to remove the brake assembly and/or to replace the snubber. There is a 200lbs spring located under the Brake Stator that must be compressed PRIOR to removal or you could cause injury to yourself. NOTE: There should be a warning label explaining this
You can find all your parts and information at repairclinic.com. Just type in your model number in the search menu.
The parts required to make the repairs aren't very expensive, but the tool required to do it can be a bit pricey. If you've never worked on this type of washer before, this is not a job that I would recommended to the average do-it-yourselfer. Maytag is real good about providing the necessary instructions with their parts, however.
In summary this job involves the following steps:
1. Removal of the front case to access the washer interior.
2. Removal of the drive belt and pulley from underneath the washer.
3. Removal of the drain hoses from the wash tub.
4. I usually remove the entire wash tub with transmission still installed at this point and place it upside down outside the washer for ease of accessing everything. (There are other methods, but I find this one easier).
5. This is where the brake compression tool will be required to remove the brake rotor, stator and snubber ring.
Now, I am summarizing this job quite a bit. If this is something you wish to try to repair yourself, and you need more instructions, let me know. I hope this helps you.

looks like you need to replace the main DRIVE BELT , first open the panel to access inside the washer , give it a test wash and look at the bottom where the belt is , check if belt is tight , if you still hear the squeak try lubricate spray to the pulleys and avoid spaying the MAIN BELT . hope this info works
