Question about Whirlpool LSB6200KQ Top Load Washer
When we moved our washer and installed it in the new place, it started making a very loud squealing noise during the spin cycle. The noise occurs only when the motor is running the spin cycle. It stops when the motor shuts off. Is this something I could repair myself?
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.

If part of a belt gets torn and it is long enough, it will hit any part of the washing machine within range and make a clicking noise at every revolution of the motor.
I am pretty sure you need new belts. You should be able to remove a few screws and open the back cover. Between the pulleys there is a tensioner...loosen that so you can remove the belt easily. replace it with a new belt and adjust the tension.
hope this helps
