If the unit is only making the loud noise during spin, it means that your main bearing and seal are going out and the entire bearing and seal would need to be replaced. Whirlpool actually makes Maytag since 2006 so below is a video that shows you how to replace the parts if you're handy enough to do it yourself. Order the parts that they list in the beginning of the video as those are the parts you need.
