Possible that you would have a tub seal leak if it is only noticable during spin cycle. Possible that it "drips" slightly while in agitation, but not enough to notice it. While in spin mode you have a lot more parts moving as well as a lot more water pressure on the seal itself. Pump could also be leaking, but highly doubtful since it would leak a constant amount at all times. Good Luck!!! Jim

hey guys i guess this is not a uncommon problem. I have a commercial washer about 4 years old that get moderate service at a rental of mine and it is leaking from the tub as well. I hope to fix the problem because the new machines are very expensive.

Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,
Is t your washer cleaning the clothes and operating fine other than the noise?
If so do not spend any money on it unless it breaks or does not operate!
"If its not broken do not fix it!"
I know this is not the what you wan to hear!
I have a telephone number of the consumer affairs of for maytag that's hard to find!
If you call them thay will demand that thier servicers find and remedy the problem or swap it out for you!.
Even if it is past warranty.
I'm not at work for another couple of hours.
When I get there I'll give you the 800 number for Whirlpool (They now own Maytag) Consumer affairs and you can cal Monday!
I do this frequently for my customers!
"It's easyier to keep the customers you have than find new ones"
But no matter what happens,you have no need to pay the repair persons child's college tuition!
You have your own needs!.
How much did you spend on this machine even though it did wash and perform?
Noise is not broken or failure.
I had a Maytag Neptune that did this for 6 years and I fixed 2 other problem unrelated .
Then on the third break down I dumped it in the trash and bought myself a Speed Queen Commercial
washer that will last me 25 years for half the price of the $999.00 Maytag Neptune.
When I complained to my father about the noises in our family car he used to tell me,
turn on the radio.
Please remember to leave a rating before you go!

SOURCE: Lint in the wash water/clothes
If you have a regular tub/agitator machine you can fill 1/2 with water, add two cups of white vinegar & allow it to agitate but not empty. Give the machine a break to 'soak', then agitate again. Allow the vinegar-water to sit in the tub between rounds. Do this for the whole day (on weekend?) to give the machine a good cleaning. Often soaking in vinegar will loosen trapped debris so it can go down the drain. It will clean the machine very well even if it does not stop your lint problem. Sounds like there must be some part in the machine that got clogged w/ lint or that there is a hidden lint trap. Read the instruction booklet or try to contact the manufacturer via toll free phone or internet for troubleshooting on the problem. Good Luck!
