I can't tell what the Model # is because out the tight area the washer is in, but it is a Maytag Centennial and it doesn't have any diagnostic lights on the front of it, that I can tell. The problem is that when the spin cycle stops there is one loud banging sound. The sound would be similar to hitting the side of the washer with hammer each time the spin cycle ends. It started off not too bad, but is progressively getting worse. It kinda sounds at the end of the spin cycle it violently stops immediately instead of slowing down to a stop. Thanks for any help.

If there are no LED lights under the knob this is a direct drive machine and your brake is engaging too effectively. You can clean and/or replace the brake pads to solve it.
Usually it means some oil has crept up onto the brake/drive tube or the pads. If you can recreate by opening the lid during spin that's definitively it.
It isn't really an emergency style issue but it can cause a crack in the tub and is annoying.
The brake is located above the clutch and stops the basket when needed. Most cycles allow the basket to coast to a stop at the end but engage the brake between wash and rinse.
There are vids on youtube about it. To do it absolutely the right way you'll need a hub nut wrench. However you can do it without pulling the brake/drive tube if you are patient and somewhat mechanically inclined. I've seen people advise to even just spray a lubricant onto the brake surface to reduce the friction causing the problem. That creates a a safety issue as the basket will not rapidly stop when needed.
