I have a maytag Model Lat8840baw. I have put new belts pump seal ect. a year or two ago. I have a clicking noise in the spin cycle. The noise isn't there until the washer is almost at top speed in the spin cycle. I am getting some tub wobble in the sin cycle. Maybe 1/4 inch movement. The 2 year old repair had nothing to do with this noise. wife does most of the washing. I noticed that the noise was more prevalent now. It is not a loud noise at all, must be close tho the washer 20 feet or closer to hear it. I have not changed the damper pads.

you would have to open the front to see if you can pinpoint where the noise is coming from....

you want to rule out things like hoses or wires tapping the body or tub during spin...
