My Maytag Atlantis Washer was spinning seemingly faster, & louder for a spell. It was sounding as if a bearing of sorts was wearing out, very noisy spin cycle and hard brake to stop spinning. Now, washer will agitate & sort of drain, but spinning takes place now @ all

You mean it won't spin at all now?

Sounds like you have multiple problems.

What I do is tilt the washer back and remove the belt from the pulleys, then turn the drain pump pulley by hand and see if it turns smooth both ways, if not you will need a new drain pump, and POSSIBLY a new belt too.

The serial number of your washer determines which drain pump your model takes.

If the serial number of your washer starts with 18 or lower, here's the drain pump for your model:
WP35-6465 Drain Pump Assembly


If the serial number of your washer starts with 19 or higher, here's the drain pump for your model:
WP35-6780 Washer Drain Pump Assembly


Here is the belt for your model:
Drive Belt WP22003483


For the no spinning problem its likely the thrust bearing kit, for the bearing noise problem, your looking at a new upper and lower spin bearing. For the hard braking issue your looking at a new stator and rotor.

You actually have 2 spin bearings, upper and lower, I'd check the lower bearing first to see if it turns rough or smooth.

Here's the lower spin bearing:
Whirlpool 12001562 Bearing Assembly (lower)


In order to replace the lower bearing you would need to remove the thrust bearing and the brake assembly from the unit. The brake tool to release the brake spring is No Longer Available. A member back in Dec. 2008 was able to use longer screws in place of the shorter screws to release the brake spring pressure, thus avoiding the need to purchase the brake tool: FIXED Admiral washer LNC6760B71 snubber

Here's the thrust bearing kit and video that shows the way to remove and replace it first to get to the lower spin bearing.

12002213 Thrust Bearing Kit



Then once you have removed the thrust bearing kit and brake spring, then there will be 3 bolts you have to remove to get access to the lower spin bearing. Once the bearing is removed turn it both ways to see if it turns rough or smooth, normal would be smooth.
