Pull your washer forward then tilt the top backwards until it sits at about a 45 degree angle. There should be a belt and 3 pulleys underneath. Remove the belt (one of the pulleys will move to allow slack) Ignore the moving pulley and the large pulley in the center. The third pulley is your pump. Try to turn it by hand, it should move freely. Presumably, it wont and will need to be replaced.

Waher works fine but when it gets to the spin cycle it starts making a horrendous noise like a bearing or something

the most common probelm is the drain pump. tilt the machine back so you can see underneath then grab the belt and push or pull it by hand and you should here the grinding noise you may aslo be able to see a silver ribbed disc stick up from the drain pump touching the bottom of the washer replace the drain pump

Maytag washer makes loud grinding noise during the spin cycle

if it's making a noise then either your drain pump bearing is going out or your thrust bearing is going out (assuming the noise happens in both spin and wash). Tip the washer backwards so that you can get underneath of it. Take the belt off and spin the pump pulley on the right side. This should spin effortlessly.

The middle pulley is the trustbearing pulley. Spin this--- one direction it should have a little bit of resistance--- the other should have more resistance
