This has been a great machine for almost eight years. Lots of use and has been very reliable. In November of 2007 I started having problems with it spinning out. It seems like it does not go fast enough to spin out completely. Sometimes it doesn't spin out at all. A very large load will spin out (not as dry as it used to) but a small load will go off balance and the tub will move around and bang against the sides and make all kinds of noise. A small load doesn't have enough clothes in the tub to spin dry without going off balance.
We had a nightmare of an experience with the Magtag warranty people. The machine was under warrantly (extended) and they sent out a young kid from a local repair shop who told me it was the motor. I didn't agree, but what do I know? He put in a brand new motor and it was exactly the same. After several more visits and several weeks and no results, he tells me it needs new belts, maybe a brake, a transmission and so on and so on. I complained several times to Maytag, who instead of helping me out, went ahead and voided our extended warranty, telling us it would cost more to fix the machine than it was worth. I can't tell you how upset I was about this whole mess. The repair person they sent out to us obviously didn't have a clue as to what was going on with my machine, and I had to pay the price! Talk about getting screwed! Now we have no warranty to get it fixed, and not enough money to buy a new machine. So much for extended warranties.
I have been using this machine every day at least twice a day since this happened, and aside from not spinning out enough to get my clothes almost completely spun dry as it should, it works fine. Would you have any idea what the problem could be? My husband is very mechanically inclined, and said he wouldn't mind taking it apart and fixing it if he knew what to look for. He's never fixed a washing machine before.
I just hate to have to go out and by a new machine, when I really believe that the one I have isn't really that bad off? Am I wrong?
I believe that it always spins out after the wash cycle, (the fabric softener is always gone) but not always after the rinse cycle, for the final spin. What would cause the tub to go off balance during the spin cycle?
I would greatly appreciate any help you could give us. We've been through a lot.

Please read this question again and then decide what manual you would give this person. The lack of details, is a great hinder for a good answer or even to help with finding an online manual. Next time, please nyer lots of details in the question, like brand and model, but for some things like cars also give year of build and for computers, phones and tablets also give OS and revision.
It is quite frustrating having lots of incomplete questions here.
Some washing machines are made with hardened plastic parts instead of metal. You may have a plastic knuckle( used during the wash cycle to aggitate the items) that has worn a bit and needs replaced. I had the same issue with our Kenmore a few years back. The replacement knuckle was $100 plus tax. If you are handy with instructions and your hands it is something that can be done at home with the proper tools and time. I had no time to fix ours and the service charge cost $150.
It sounds like the drum bearings may need replacing.
This is not a small job, so be sure of what you're doing before you attempt to fix it yourself.
Please feel free to get back to me for instructions on replacing the seal and bearings.

Not sure which machine you are referencing but if is the 16231...it is highly recommended. There is literally no issues with this machine reported in the past 2 years it has been out.
CAN NOT GO WRONG! More than worth the $$ You will be please with the reliability of a mechanical machine with the benefit of a few "can't live with out" electronic features, up/down needle button. start/stop button, speed control lever! It pretty great. You can also go to sear.com and read soem other reviews form customers. It comes pretty highly rated.
Eight years is getting kind of old. When the clutch or transmission goes out, it costs more to replace the part than to buy a new washing machine. You'd better plan a shopping trip rather than spring for that $100.
You had a trial version of office 2007. Unless they provided you with the codes for the FULL version you are out of luck- (and pocket) several hundred dollars. You need to buy office 2007, or get it from some other source. openoffice.org can give you a FREE program which will work in place of micro$oft's money machine (MS office) but if you need full functionality you need to obtain a valid office 2007 key or serial number from some other source. There are plenty of sources out there- I can't legally tell you where though. all the major maudacturers use this trick with software vendors- they provide a "compimentary" version and after a little while FORCE you to buy it. It's a great marketing strategy since you already are sucked into using it and don't know there are alternatives to paying for it.
All washing machines need to be balanced before using , the
feet at the bottom of washer can be screwed in or screwed out to balance machine . it may take a few tries .
Also .. overloading washer will unbalance machine
