Diagnosed that the snubber had failed.
Removed the belt, cam assembly and pulley assembly. Using Maytag brake removal tool #12002012 I removed the brake stator. I removed the front of the washing machine and the rear access plate. I removed the six tension springs. I moved the machine basket and shaft assembly toward the top of the machine. I removed the old snubber and replaced with a new one. I installed 6 new tension springs and reassembled.
The washing machine runs great.
