SOURCE: loud squealing sound

It is the pump going bad.  There is a tech sheet inside a ziploc bag beneath the control panel.  From the front of the machine, lean over it and look just behind the control panel and locate the two silver screws towards the outter sides.  Remove those two screws and lift the control panel off.  Next to where the water hoses are connected you'll see a ziploc bag with the tech sheet inside.  It has instructions on how to put the machine into diagnostics mode.  Do this if you want and it should tell you the pump is going bad.
Our GWL11 was making that same noise and I just let it go because the machine still worked and, quite frankly, I had no idea what the heck it could be.  Though I'm handy, I've never attempted to fix a washing machine.  Boy, I wish I would have researched the issue online sooner.
After spending more time online researching this issue than any person should, it turns out that squealing noise is the pump going bad.  A fairly inexpensive (about $75) and easy thing to replace.  Should only take 15 minutes or so to change out, even if you've never done it before, and that includes the time to disconnect the hoses and manually bail out the machine.  But if you let the problem go the pump will eventually short out and in turn take out the controller board with it, which is about $130+ just for the part, and you'll have to replace both.
We got about a month of use out of the machine with it squealing then one day it just up and quit.  It would not power on at all.  I did all the unplugging, waiting 30 seconds, plugging back in, etc... and nothing.  Sure enoung the pump shorted out and took the controller board with it.  I actually just received my new pump Saturday (5/16/09) and replaced it yesterday hoping that would solve the problem, but alas, it still won't turn on.  Now I have to buy a new controller board...sigh...
Change the pump now and save yourself some headache and money.  If you have a model GWL11 the pump part # is 420325P.  Should you need the controller board too, it is part # 420094USP.  Good luck!

My washer is making a loud nosie when agitation starts

That is a normal sound when the transmission shifts from the last spin cycle to go into the agitate cycle. It should make a loud click sound that does not last longer than a second. There is nothing wrong with your washing machine.

It sounds like the motor is heating up and tripping the overload. The squealing is probably coming from you pump. Tilt the washer back and turn the pulley for the pump by hand and if it make the squeal, replace. If it does not you may have a bad transmission.

Loud squealing noise from water softener when toilet flushed

The unit may be in a regeneration cycle during the day. Reset to proper time of day.
It also sounds like you may need an air arestor installed on the plumbing in the house. When air becomes trapped in the plumbing lines it can cause the plumbing to "hammer" during periods of heavy usage. You would need to contact a plumber for proper placement of this device on your plumbing system.

Load squeal when it in the agitation cycle.

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
