Hi, welcome...
Your water pump is going bad most likely. This is easy to diagnose and also easy to repair. Under the control panel on top is a "tech sheet" that explains how to put the washer in "test mode". Set the machine in test mode and run the water pump independently and you will probably hear this same "schreeching" sound. The water pump runs at the begining of the wash cycle to recirculate the water and mix the detergent with the incoming fresh water. You also can "check" this by using the "PERMA PRESS" cycle. The perma-press does not use the recirculation feature, so the schreeching noise will be delayed to the first rinse cycle if the pump is bad.
The part number is 420325P and you can get them from http://www.fisherpaykelparts.net

Turn the washer over and see if this model uses a belt to drive the transmission for the washer, if so replace it, I will bet it does, if not the transmission is defective.

Screeching noise after water starts going in


Hi just read your posting.Now put the machine to a spin cycle and push start,Does the noise happen in this cycle? If the noise doesn't happen then try a cold water fill but turn the hot tap off first.If the noise still doesn't happen then try a hot water fill but turn the cold water off first. This noise sounds like one of your water valves is faulty.Please reply with additional information on the questions and I am sure we can rectify this fault.
