Hi, I have a frigidaire front load washer, model FTF2140ESO, that is making a high pitched screeching noise when it enters into the final spin cycle. The noise ramps up in volume as the drum spins faster....

Some times screws can work their way out near the drum and rub against the drum causing the squeak. You might have to take off the back of the washer and see if there is anything loose contacting the drum.

Washer makes high pitched noise after draining

This is due to the fact that the draim pump is still running DRY and so makes the high pitch noise. Check the timer or reset to a low spin dry cycle. If not check the drain circuit power using a multimeter from the program controller unit.IF there is power and the motor makes noise then remove and check if the pump is clogged, clean and reset.

GE Washer Model WJRR4170E4WW squeaks while agitating

There are four suspension rods that the tub hangs on. When the washer is agitating the tub will rock back and forth and the rods will move back and froth as well. To fix this noise, lift up in each rod and put some lubricant in the cup that the rods fit into at the top of the washer.

Note that it is best if you use a lithium-based lubricant rather than silicone based lubricant.

The washing machine makes a high-pitched squeking

No, not if the noise is only when rinsing, if it makes the noise when spinning generally then possibly but if only noisy when rinsing sounds like a filter blockage on the waste pipe. clean out the filter behind the flap on the bottom of the front panel
