SOURCE: our dynamo CA04-26 pool pump is making a whining

The bearings are likely failing and they are not open to allow for re-lubrication. You can replace them yourself or take the motor to a local electric motor repair shop to have it done for you. A shop will probably cost about $40 to $50 for parts and labor. You should also replace the seal at the same time. The cost for the seal is under $10 and the labor shouldn't change.

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.

High pitched noise


Then you will need to stop the fan and see if the noise is still there. If yes then its in the compressor. If it goes away then replace the fan

We have a hayward pump and the motor keeps stopping and tripping the circuit breaker. What could it be?


The motor might be too powerful for the line it's on, (usually a pump should be on a somewhat dedicated line) no Ac's running on same breaker.
An extension cord longer then 6ft is also a suspect in not allowing the pump the draw enough power.
The pump may not be drawing enough water, overheating and tripping the breaker, or the motor might have rust on the inside causing the armature not to spin freely, and shut off. (usually motor will make a high pitch noise) while running)

Dishwasher Making Loud High Pitched Noise.


A loud high pitch whine while running the dishwasher means that there is something caught in the chopper assembly. To get to the chopper assembly you need to take the racks out and take the pump apart from the inside of the dishwasher. The chopper assembly looks like a metal grate with holes in it. And it might not even be stuck in the grate but somewhere in the pump area due to the water being pumped out, so the best idea is to take the whole thing apart and clean everywhere. However I do not recommend doing this unless you are completely certain you will remember where the screws and gaskets go, otherwise you risk damaging your pump or house from a leak or improper installation. You have been warned.
