I am currently having the same issue with my Maytag A482. Not sure if you have found a fix yet, or if you have replaced your washer. My washer runs fine until it nears the end of the cycle, when it begins to spin and shake violently, enough to loosen the leveling feet and rock back and forth. I pulled the front panel of the machine off (two screws near the base in the front, and two clips at the top) and ran a load through it. It ran fine until the end, when the machine started shaking violently. I did notice a few small pieces of roundish felt looking material sitting on the bottom, which after some research looks like it may be the damper pad. I found these online: Damper pad 203956 Replacement Damper 203725 for MAYTAG Laundry Appliances A482
I am hoping this will resolve the issue, I will order them this afternoon and install them once they arrive. I really hate to replace such a good washer with a new high efficiency unit, which all seem to have terrible reviews after a few months/year of use.
Experienced a similar matter w/ ours that resulted in $3000 worth of floor damage in our house. The solution was an $85 service call for a tech to come out and reconnect a tube that detects when the machine has filled to the proper hight. Without this mechanism in place the washer thought it needed to continue filling (in our case it fille for 2 hours while we were gone). Sorry, never learned the proper name of this water pressure sensor.
Most likely the motor control unit, the MCU controls the timer (loop circuit). Best way to check is to just pull the MCU out and visually inspect it for burned components, although it is not always visible. You may need to make some involved voltage readings to verify.
either a water valve is stuck or most likely the pressure switch is bad check to make sure the hose is on the tub and back of the pressure switch and its clear if that's good replace the pressure switch its where you select the water fill on the drier first thing to check is the power dryers will run on 110 but not heat without 220 get a volt meter and check it where the cord attaches if that's good check the heating element
