    I have the same problem. However, the squealing is only intermitted but there is more so a knocking and roaring type noise I am hearing. Can some one tell me what the fix for this is?

Peace bumbabob,

Huuum t your service!

1-it may be the belt squealing or high pitched noises telling you it wants to go!
2- It more than likely is the rolling suspension that the drum spins on! I've seen the older models with one of 3 wheels that the drum rolls on is worn and wobbling or screaming or screeching etc.
3- I've seen also a few times that the motors heat shield, a simple piece if tin with two screws or bolts holding it down was "loose" and vibrating causing a loud metal squeal noise all the time or intermittently!!
If I were there hands on I could fix it!

Only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.


Unfortunately, another point to consider!!
How old is the appliance?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

You will be fine
Bless You ngafm1
*****PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING BEFORE YOU

SOURCE: very noisey on spin cycle

Almost certainly the main drum bearings have failed.

It appears your clutch assembly has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Final high speed spin very noisey


Something is causing the drum to be way out of balance. Does it bang and make noise when it's spinning empty? Probably not. Is something stuck on the side (inside of course) of the drum, causing it to shake when spinning? If not, a spring or shock absorber (connecting drum to sides, bottom or top of machine) has broken or come loose.

more than likely the rear bearing has gone bad and when a load is applied the difference in weight distribution causes the knocking.

Hotpoint Aquarius Model WD61 Washer Dryer working but it's noisey


If you've just installed it for the first time ensure that transporting locks been removed (big screws under usualy yellow or white plastic covers at the back side of the machine)
Make sure that machine is standing flat on the floor with no swinging whe you try to move it, this can be achieved by adjusting four legs of the machine (one at each corner).
If neither of those helps than you need to identify when the noise appears what machine is doing at that moment. If the noise appears when it's draining, pumping water out, than your machine's pump is wearing out, or if it's noisy when spining (final spin) than bearing of the drum is wearing out.

Update me about your progress

Good Luck

Whirlpool dryer making noise and shaking! The bin


The dryer has "rollers" underneath the dryer drum that support and allow the drum to roll smoothly when drying.
I believe one or both of your rollers are worn out. In either case, make sure you replace them all or you will be doing this again in the near future when the other one decides to fail.
Below is a diagram of the rollers ( #44 ) that need to be checked and replaced.
Let me know.'
