Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. The banging your washer is experiencing is caused by two things. Either the Tub bearing: (Item 21) http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=47786&diagram_id=665652#d665652

or the damper pads are worn (Item 8) http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=47786&diagram_id=695761#d695761

The whole top end of the washer must be disassembled to gain access to the tub bearing. The damper pads can be changed by removng the lower drive pullley and suspension springs then lifting the tub assy away from the base.

There is a possibility that something a simple as the leveling legs just need adjusted. If you can press down on all top 4 corners one at a time and the unit teeters then the legs need adjusted so that they all touch the floor.

If the material condition of the washer is still in good shape I would do any of the above repairs and keep this washer in service even IF I had to call a repair person.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Bosch ingfront loader inner drum banging around in spin cycle seems to be loose found tiny white wheel underneath has it come off something inside?

The machine needs to be properly balanced for it to be free of vibration also correct weight of clothing inserted would help obvious that the weel needs repair meantime try balancing the machine.

I took my washer all appart to clean the gum out of the tub now the spin cycle hits and bangs the sides so much you cant use it

Assume this is front loading washing machine, Check drum dampeners are firm, any cables that were held by cable ties near the drum and were removed in order to remove the cables in order to access the drum need to be replaced with new cable ties, there shouldn't be anything loose dangling around near the drum, as it will strike when the drum vibrates during its spin cycle.

Can not run spin cycle bang bang bang

Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

Maytag performa off balance

Check the vibration dampers and the plastic mounts for wear. They should be solid to the machine.

Wachine machine bangs when on spin cycle.

Unless your top loader is set firmly on concrete and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.
