SOURCE: Washer make a loud squeak when the spinning stops

its the brake, just as long as it stops, dont worry about it, made a web page that has pics on how to replace the spin bearing on the maytag atlantis washer, after searching the net on how to, finding the manual, not explanatory, i decided to make this a simple 1 page web site, with lots of pictures, i hope this can help someone else in doing this job. since it would cost too much money for a repairman to do the job, better to buy a new one instead, i tackled the job. since it basically takes apart the whole machine, it might help others even if they dont have the spin bearing problem but other parts to replace,

This solution applys to many Maytag washing machines. Perhaps not all.
Maytags have three damper pads in the bottom of the machine that must be lubricated from time to time. If they are not, they can be ripped off. They are glued to the bottom of the machine, the drum rests on top of them. When they become dry or lost, the machine shakes violently and no amount
of leveling or load balancing will fix it. Replace and/or lubricate the pads and magically it works again.

This is not a difficult repair for those that have modest mechanical skills and a few basic tools.
replacement pads and lube come in an inexpensive kit.n

I will create a web page with instructions if there is interest.

SOURCE: Front load washer shakes violently during spin cycle

I had this problem as well. I called dealer and Maytag. They made an appointment and stood me up several times.
I finally went to place that sells refrigeration equipment and bought an anti-vibration pad. It's a 12" square waffle pad used under large equipment to prevent them from vibrating loose on connected piping. I cut it into 4 pieces and put one under each corner of the dryer. Problem solved, in fact it worked so well that I stacked dryer over washer, placed pads between units and have not had a problem since. I also gained a lot of space in my laundry room as well.

The tub has its own suspension to avoid having the machine walk away from its position. The chassis normally has four suspension points and when one of these gives way, any imbalance can cause the tub to hit the inside of the cabinet. Removing the back panel of the machine and using a good light, the offending suspension part can be found by having someone rock the tub by hand.
In some machines, this suspension is nothing more than some very thick, round rubber doughnuts and are generally not hard to replace.
Any appliance parts store will be able to supply these.

Maytag top load washer shakes. The plastic tub seem to be the problem. I took the front off and watched it spin. The tub seems to want to lean to one side and spin out of round moving up and down. All...


Seems with your observation that the tub is out of shape and so it might be wobbling when it runs. So the only option is to change the tub with a new one but the cost must be confirmed to decide between a new tub or a new washer.
If you can get a salvaged tub it will be economical.
