Question about Frigidaire FWS833A Top Load Washer
My washer ( Model # GLWS1349AS1) is making a LOUD screeching noise when it gets to the spin cycle. It has never done that before and Im wondering if its a belt or what???
Any suggestions would be appreciated
SOURCE: loud noise in spin cycle
Most leaks are associatd with your drain pumps although it can leak from the tub. If its the tube the seals in it are worn if it the drain pump - the first point to check is where the drain hose connecs to the pump otherwise you may need to replace the drain pump
The noise - if its what i am thinking of starts just as the spin cycle stsrts and just as it finishes - usually a clutch problem - worn - parts need to be changed.

Make sure all springs are still in their place tilt the machine back and look under it and you can see them. 2nd all legs must be level as well as the floor.

The following link explains the problem you are having with your Maytag:
It is common for the brakes on Maytag top loaders to wear and make noise, as well, as the snubber. There is a helpful tip that you can try to quieten the noise if it is the snubber. DO NOT oil it, or lubricate with any petroleum based products! This will ruin the unit and actually make the problem worse. NOTE: If the snubber is excessively worn, it was also cause vibration on the spin cycle.
If the brakes are worn, however, you can put a light film of oil on the brake pad. It is common for the pad to collect moisture in humid and damp climates and start to squeak against the brake stator. The brake pad consists of a rotor with a leather edge (pad). The leather can absorb moisture and begin to squeak against the brake stator. Oiling it slightly will get rid of the noise.
Confused? If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information useful.
NOTE: There is a follow-up comment at the bottom of the link I provided from another user. The method this person used to release the tension on the brake can save you from having to purchase the brake release tool.

Usually this is due to either the drum support breaking or the back bearing being bad-neither easy to fix- or worth it. Try lifting the drum up and down, if it moves up and down they are bad. I see this a lot, and the price of repair isn't worth it. Craig
