My Maytag washer model MAV208DAWWmakes a loud screech at the end of the spin cycle, and the clothes are sill wet

That is the brake. Your clutch maybe wearing out. Or the belt maybe slipping because the rollers for the motor maybe wearing out.

Loud noise on spin cycle...sounds like a bad bearing maybe????? any advice on this noise?

It's hard to pinpoint it from your description. But it might be either the motor coupler, or transmission. Does it agitate alright with no noise? It could be center shaft bearings too if it only makes the noise in spin. Either way, with transmission, or center shaft bearings, the transmission needs to be removed. The motor coupler is a lot easier. It's what drives everything and is used instead of a belt. If the rubber is worn out, it can make an awful noise. If this helps, please rate my answer. Thank you.

When entering spin cycle, making a loud noise. I

Check your belt it may be lose. A lose belt will cause a squealing noise and the machine spin slower or take time to come up to full speed

Loud noise during spin cycle... maybe a bearing or belt.... no problems during wash cycle

First of all check there is no coin or similar object stuck between the barrel and outer drum. or could be possible object in pump. If you take a look at back of drum (presuming it's a front loader) Look for any water at bottom f drum, this could indicate water seal bearing trouble. If it is the latter then dont just replace water seal, replace the bearings as well. A set of bearings and water seal will cost around £50/£75 and should take a few hours to do.

Washer wont agitate or spin

Sounds like your transmission is going bad. usually they will pop the belt when going out. Probably with a service call and the cost of the transmission, you'd do better heading to sears. Sorry to bear the bad news. Good luck.

Spin cycle is very loud but works well

my neptune was so loud it sounded like it was taking off, it turned out to be the bearing in the drum, the repair man wanted $1200. to fix it. i called maytag and this part has a lifetime warranty and they sent it to me in 2 days.

Loud noise on spin cycle

How did that answer get an 83% rating? It is absolutely useless. My washer has the exact same problem as described above.During the spin cycle it sounds like a jet engine. It kinda sounds like the belt hitting the drive wheel but may be bearings in the motor.
