Use a tiny amount of light weight oil (sewing machine oil will work) on the outsides of the motor shaft,., Use a tooth pick to apply. Of cours you'll need to remove the plastic body first. Another suggestion if that doesn't take care of the noise is to place a tiny bit of vasoline on the gears that are exposed when you take the plastic boy off. While your doing that you may want to place some vasoline on the gears inside the driving truck or trucks (dual drive). Pay attention when removing the plastic bottom covers from the truck. Use a small screw driver to pry one end of that cover loose and the other becomes loose and then remove to expose the gears.

Squeals during the washers spinning cycle


What model is it? The answer is probably both. Every machine I've worked on has a motor with a belt that drives a pulley that turns the tub held in place by bearings. Your squeal could certainly be caused by a bad belt. If the belt looks bad change it. If it looks okay, try a squirt of belt dressing, if the squeal disappears change the belt. If it is a front loader open the loading door, put one hand just inside the tub at the top (like a waiter carring a tray shoulder high with one hand) and LIGHTLY push upwards then drop your hand a little then push upwards etc., etc. If the whole tub moves solidly you are okay, but if you feel a wiggle or a slight space in the jump (man this is harder to explain than i thought it would be) then your bearings may need attention. I doubt it is your bearings causing the squeal though. Does it squeal through entire spin cycle, or just at the beginning?

My washer squeals during spin cycle model frigidaire fex831cso. Sometimes it does it on the highest speed it reaches other times at slow speeds. One thing that is constant is... once it starts squealing...


The belt on my was the culpret. The washer belt has a spring loaded idler. Unplug power and move the idler off of the belt and use a spring hook or longnose vice grips to pull spring out of slot and into the next slot closser to you. There are 5 slotts. Push idler back by hand and put belt back on it. Your done. The transmission just spins as a unit in spin cycle, it does sit on top of a bearing,but that didn't seem to be the problem. If the belt tension doesn't fix it, put some grease and oil in the bearing or replace it.
Eventually you will need a new belt so order one now.

I keep getting a high-pitched squeal from my left hand speaker on my acer aspire 5670. Any idea ho w i repair? thanks


Do you have a microphone or a magnet near where this squeal is coming from?

If no to the above, it sounds like you have a mic crossed wire inside, "if" you haven't had any new software installed before this started, The easiest thing is to delete and reload a new audio driver, that's where I would start.

Squealing and sometimes doesn't blow cool


A squealing noise is most likely the bearings going bad in the blower motor. This will slow the motor down. If the blower is not operating at the proper speed this will affect the temperature pressure relationship of the refrigerant. This will cause the unit to put out the wrong temperature. Running the unit to long under these conditions can possibly cause further problems ( including a very high electric bill). I recommend that use do not use this unit untill it is repaired or replaced.
Good luck.....

Squealing from the front of the car some times.


If the squealing changes in pitch with the speed of the motor it is likely the belt squealing. While the belt is removed, check the tensioner and other pulleys for unusual noise when spinning them by hand.

High pitch squeal, not picking up paper


it's not the gear..you are having a seized mechanism, most likely from something stuck in there.

Squealing noise during spin cycle


The spin cycle activates the fast mode on the motor, squealing normal occurs due to belt slippage. I would check your belts (look for cracks. Check the belt tension as well, most washers have an adjustment, normally on the motor that allows you to increase the tension of the belt.
