Re: Banging during spin cycle
Its possible that a spring has broken, become overstretched, or otherwise failed. Also there is a delrin ring called a snubber that the tub moves on (between the base of the machine and the frame of the tub) it wears out and causes this complaint. I also recommend new springs with a snubber. However replacing a snubber is quite tricky and you will probably need a Tech for that.

There can be several causes, the drum off balance would cause the shavings during spin cycle , balance could be one of the the balancing mechanism failed and not running could be the balance sensor shutting down the spin cycle.
You should start by checking the balance shocks .
First we started hearing a grinding sound during the spin cycle. My husband replaced the belt, which was loose and not helping the spinning of the tub any, thus much wetter clothing after spin cycle. The belt gave us another week of use out of the machine and did drain the tub better, but then water started leaking into the tub from the water inlet (or area where water rushes in to fill tub), and was not up to the usual "rush" of water, when filling up. The grinding sound started again during the spin cycle, and so now we are assuming it is the ball bearings or the brakes and perhaps the water pump as well. Estimates for these jobs on the boards seems to run from $400-500.00. The machine is only 7 years old, but after reading so many posts, maybe I should count my blessings that it lasted that long! This was an all mechanical machine, which I loved. Atlantis Maytag, a very sturdy and solid looking machine. Never did really clean that well though. SOLUTION: we are getting a new machine.
Contacted a local repair shop. They told me that if I got it spinning again, the motor was most likely ok. It is protected by a thermal switch that turns it off when it begins to overheat. The smell was to be expected as it was overheating; the difficutly restarting was because it hadn't cooled off enough yet. We have now used it a few times for small loads. Still getting a smell, but the wash cycle is completing ok.
OH the trouble I have seen with my washer. Its only 8 years old and I had the same problem with mine it would fill up the rinse cycle and then just sit there with the water in it. I had a tech come out and he told me I wasn't distributing the clothes correctly, mind you I'm 54 and I think I know how to do laundry!
However I had just 1 month ago replaced the water pump because my son decided he wanted to do a weeks wash in one load. So what I think happened is that somehow the machine was knocked out of being level. The guy said he lubricated the motor cradle and leveled the machine, knock on wood just for today the cycle is running all the way through. Hope this helps
this is my experience repairing the maytag washer Atlantis mav series 9750 aww, I had to replace the spin bearing since it was making a jet engine noise when it was spinning out the water. its not an easy job for my 1st time taking this machine apart, you literally take it all apart to get to this bearing, but now I can show how to do it with pictures making it easier for you to do it. even if you have to replace something other than the spin bearing, this how to tutorial will show you how to get to most of the parts in this machine tutorial located here tutorial located here https://sites.google.com/site/maytagwasherrepair/maytag-washer-repair
