Check also the damper as the springs do not fail much.
so if your ttub is having a rough ride please check ,usually two dampers/shockabsorbers, can be defective.
Place the washer alongside and check from the bottom.

I have a Maytag Neptune front load washer that the tub is rubbing and is loud.

Could be the bearings . But it could also be the springs that center and hold tub in place. They weaken over time and it is not uncommon for a tub to be scraping because one of the springs is shot. When you replace one, you replace all at same time and eat your wheaties because they are hard to replace.

Hot Tub - Spring cleaning and Maintenance

Spring is a great time to change the water in your hot tub and clean or replace your hot tub filters. Drain and give your hot tub a good thorough cleaning to rid yourself of the winter season. Make sure that you clean your hot tub cover at the same time both the top and the underside. This will help the hot tub cover to last longer and perform better. Hot Tub Spring Cleaning Tips

Shakes like crazy spin

Your maytag washer tub and basket assembly sits on a base counter balanced by 6 springs. Is is possible to move the tub around by hand. The best test is to start a spin with the unit empty of cloths, allow the tub to reach speed for a few seconds, lift the lid and check the tub position after it stops, if the tub is off center with the lid opening, re center the tub and run spin again. If your tub returns to an off center stopped position you most likely will need the base kit replaced. The base kit replaces the entire bottom of the unit along with new springs, and snubber, if so packaged per your application. Maytag experienced a defective stamping dye when these bases were stamped, thus they were stamped crooked. This test is performed with the machine it's self relatively level on the floor. If the tub assy leans and favors any one direction while you are trying to center it with the lid open, you may have a rusted or broken counter spring in side the unit. Pleazer Appliance...

in order the replace the springs on the outer tub no special tool required, just a little patience and finesse. thinking there are 6 springs? you need to hook them 2 to a hole on bottom of machine, i usually set them all up before starting except for one of the front ones. you use the front spring as your spring tool. with the spare spring youll be able to grab the spring and pull it up and into the hole in the tub, starting with back springs working froward. when its time to secure the final spring i usually use a length of cord kept in my tool bag for this reason.

GE WSM2780W Stacked Washer spin cycle

With no clothing in the wash tub take the following steps:
1. remove the front cover from the wash tub
2. run a full cycle of laundry and observe the tub's behavior

Potential Solutions:
A. If the tub begins to shake wildly during a full wash cycle with no clothing in it then you will need to adjust the 3 large springs on each side of the tub until the unit is working in a more-balanced position. This is simple to do by hand. If the tub appears to be shaking too far forward, then unhook the 2 large springs in back so they are tighter. Then run a full wash cycle again with no clothing.
* note: there are smaller springs too - you don't have to adjust these to fix your issue

B. If the tub works fine with no clothing during a full wash cycle, then try to load your clothing in a more balanced fashion. For example: if your wash load is only a small kitchen or bath rug then when the unit spins it will spin off balance with a wet & heavy item on only one side of the tub.

C. If you'd like to replace the 3 large springs, I can get you the part numbers. There are specific springs for both sides of the wash tub and they are different part numbers. The full replacement of the 3 large springs can be done by hand.
