    The guest didn't say it wasn't spinning or agitating, s/he said, "After the spin cycle it makes a loud screeching noise." I know exactly what the problem is because I encountered the same thing on a customer's Maytag Atlantis just this afternoon. The problem is that the plastic top ring on the spinner (the spinner is the stainless-steel basket) has come loose because the hooks on the all the fingers that lock it to the spinner have worn off or been sliced off (bad design). When the basket spins the top ring goes along for the ride, but when the spin brake goes on and the spinner comes to a quick stop, the top ring continues to spin on its own and it grinds against the spinner, which makes the screeching sound. This doesn't hurt anything, but it can drive you crazy.
    The top ring is no longer available as a separate part. You have to buy the whole assembly - spinner and top ring - which costs around $250, and it looks like it might take a lot of work to replace. I plan to try cementing the top ring in place with the high-temperature rubber cement that comes with clothes-dryer felt seals. I have good hope that will do the trick. If it does, it'll be way cheaper than replacing the whole assembly.

Check the motor on the machine, make sure that the motor is not grinding on itself. If that is not it then check the tub and make sure when that spins that it is not hitting the side of the housing
