My old maytag A608 washer works great but has one loud shriek when the spin cycle ends ..... how can i isolate if its a belt or the brake ?

 Brake lining is likely dried out. You can lubricate it by getting some oil up over the lip of the brake drum. A squirt gun type oiler works good for this as you can get the long nozzle in between the spokes of the pulley and up to the lip of the brake package. Two or three drops should do it, don't overdo it, just enough to stop the noise.
