I have a Maytag Dependable Care Plus washer, the machine is off balance and makes alot of squeeking and walks during the spin cycle. I have checked the legs and they are leveled. I havent been able to get the front off the machine. Any ideas on the problem and how to fix it?

I'm not sure where to find it. It doesn't say on the control board at top.

OKAY TO GET THE FRONT OFF, THERE ARE 2 SCREWS ONE IN EACH LOWER CORNER OF THE FRONT PANEL. YOU MAY HAVE TO PUT A BOARD OR SOMETHING UNDER THE MIDDLE TO ACCESS SCREWS BETTER.

And what am I looking for once I get it off?
WELL YOU CAN RUN IT WITH THE FRONT OFF AND SEE IF YOU CAN TELL WHERE THE NOISE IS COMING FROM. PULLEY OR SPRING FOR EXAMPLE. JUST DONT PUT YOUR HANDS IN THERE WHILE SPINNING.
