Is the high pitched sound that you hear during the spin cycle or just all the time during the wash? If it's during the spin cycle it's probably your transmission and the only way to fix it is to replace the transmission. It's only going to get worse with time and soon enough it will just seize up on you and nothing will work. A transmission for a Kenmore runs anywhere between 150 to 250 dollars. 150 if you can find a refurbished one. You can find them at any appliance repair shop. Kenmore transmissions are fairly common as it's a big name. I hope this helps you and if you have any other questions or need help with installing it let me know. I can give you an easy step by step walk through on how to install it. It doesn't take too long. Good luck to you.

It drains very slowly and it makes a high pitch sound when it does spin...sometimes you hear something tapping or slapping, likesomething is stuck.


To me it sounds like you have something stuck in your pump. I would check that first. I had the high pitched sound during the spin cycle on my machine and it turned out to be the drum bearings. That part used to be covered by a 10 year warranty but not anymore. My machine was less than ten years old and it cost me around 300.00 to fix it. I have paid for my machine 3 times over in repairs. My next washer will NOT be HE and probably an old school Speed Queen

The washer quits at rinse and spin dry cycle


I've had the same experience with my Speed Queen washer. Approached the accredited Speed Queen agents for assistance, when tech support was deployed to diagnose the problem.
In the end, I was told that the "timer" went bust. So the wash cycle seems to work 100%, but when it comes to rinse and spin the contacts on the timer don't make contact, and the motor waits in anticipation for it's next command, and that the high pitch noise heard.

Kenmore front loading HE3 makes knocking sounds during spin cycle


Ours started knocking several months ago and then progressed to a high pitched sound when in the spin cycle. I manually turned the drum and heard and felt a bearing roughness. I lifted the drum assembly and felt a fair amount of play, which I think the initial knocking noise came from. On the sears web site a new rear drum mount cost 293.00. Today we went and bought a LG model wm2455hw at Home depot, on sale until 2/20/08. I couldn't see paying to repair a machine that only lasted four years.
