I have a Maytag washer model/serial 31 ESP4-WASH bought in

Resolved Question:

I have a Maytag washer model/serial 31 ESP4-WASH bought in 06. Warranty ran out in 10. Just today the washer is making a very loud squeaking noise while in the wash and rinse cycle. It will stop only to be replaced by a noise best described as "a cat giving birth". I was wondering is the motor about to go out or could it be a bearing in the tub?
