Testimonial: "Thank you for your answer to my question. i gotten a few answers that really sound involved. going to check out your idea and see where it takes me.Thanks again. Lynn"
purely based on the vague information you have given, this could sound like the drum bearings and the fact that it has been neglected for so long has resulted in serious damage to your machine, note to all, never continue to use machines making noises, it can only get worse and do mare costly damage, after all the problem could have been a very inexpensive fix problems on this and any other site, to be fixed by messages (without actually seeing the machine) can only be fixed - or advice can only be given based on the details that are given if you say my machine just stopped then you will not get an answer will you? engineers can help sort out lots of problems without seeing the machine if we are given the right DETAILED information, no matter how silly it sounds, so before you shout and complain at others, have a thought about what you are going to write sorry its bad news but i hope i have helped

I had this problem as well.
I called dealer and Maytag.
They made an appointment and stood me up several times.
I finally went to place that sells refrigeration equipment and bought an anti-vibration pad. It's a 12" square waffle pad used under large equipment to prevent them from vibrating loose on connected piping. I cut it into 4 pieces and put one under each corner of the dryer. Problem solved, in fact it worked so well that I stacked dryer over washer, placed pads between units and have not had a problem since. I also gained a lot of space in my laundry room as well.

On something like this you will need to remove the washer wrap to inspect the suspension springs & base assembly. Please see the link provided for accessing the inside of the washer. Be sure the shipping pins have been removed. The tub should float freely.

SOURCE: major shaking during spin cycle
I have the exact same washing machine with the same problem. It is a poor design and Maytag knows it. We should be entitled to a refund. This was a very expensive machine.

two problems here,
your shaft seal is running on its last leg
the sound is unmistakeable and always described the same...
the water issue, you probably have a trickle leak through the cold water valve
the mixing valve is quite an easy repair, but I would have to say with all honesty, it probably time for a new machine
the hub seal is a tub replacment call
2 hrs of labor if hes good
and the tub runs around 500.00 dollars
sory for the bad news
