Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
Hello, welcome to FixYa.
I will start by saying your post indicates it is a stacker Kenmore washer & dryer , however narrowing down why it's noisey in spin could be tricky. It could literally be a dozen components with these units built by Frigidaire. I'll follow that by saying with these Frigidaire stacker machines "buyer beware". The most critical component that can and does fail is the main tub support brackets which are spot welded together and when they seperate you might as well discard the entire unit...unless nothing else is wrong and you are a good welder. You need to remove the front panel for a visual inspection before purchasing this unit. Pay attention to the main tub support which look like this (below) and look for cracks or seperated welds especially where I've pointed to with the arrows.. I've also listed several possible components aside from this which can contribute to noise and unbalanced spin cycles, from least to most expensive and difficult.
Idelr pulley #131862900
Drive Belt #134511600
Spin bearing #3204405
Those are just a few possibilities, of course the main tub support being the most serious followed by the transmission and spin bearing. Any of the other things are less than $100USD, but still are a bit involved for do-it-yourselfers in my opinion.
I would suggest you have a really good look at this before buying it that's the best advice I could give you. Let me know if I can assist you in any way going forward and good luck.
Thank you for choosing FixYa.

Your model has two struts which one is likely the problem. They are 74 dollars each on this parts list and DIAGRAM. Take the front off the cabinet and observe the cycle in operation to determine if that or something else is the problem.
