I am not posotive, but it sounds like you may have a piece of debris stuck in the fan underneath. You can check if you pull it out from the wall, make sure you unplug it as to not have the fan come on while you are toying. But thats what it sounds like. If that is not it, I am sure you could locate the noise with it pulled out from the wall, and go from there, Possibly your compressor, but sounds like the fan the way you're explaining it. Good luck

High pitched whining noise which doesn't vary


My bet is that it is actually coming from the speedometer. Try disconnecting either end of the speedo cable and see if the noise stops. If so, then all you need to do is apply a drop or two (but no more!) of oil into the speedometer-head bushing. Do this by removing the instrument cluster so you can flip it over - then put some light viscosity oil into the area where the speedo cable goes in. CAUTION; do not use more than one or two drops of oil - and do not leave the instruments upside down for any length of time. Failure to heed these warnings can cause oil to drip onto the face of the unit, making an unsightly (and un-fixable) mess.

Please let me know if this fixes the noise.

What is wrong when refrigerator makes a high whine periodicly?


HI,

The compressor moves the coolant through the unit, and the fan moves the air. Both have spinning motors that need lubricant to remain in good working order. When these items begin to fail, if they don't shut down completely, you will hear metal rubbing against metal, the high pitched noise. Normally these are sealed with plenty of lubricant and need no routine maintenance.

The bad news is there is not much you can do on your own. One fix that rarely works, but is worth a try because it is free, is to alter the balance of the appliance. Sometimes just raising the front or the back or the side shifts the weight in the offending motor off of the metal rubbing parts. Some appliances have adjustable "feet" that you can twist in or out for this purpose. Please don't tip the appliance so far that it is unstable. If this makes the whine go away, remember that this is only a temporary solution. It might last long enough for a repairman to replace the part, or it might last long enough to save up for a new appliance, but the whine will return.

High pitched buzz/whine during wash cycle only, spin fine


1) Make sure valve is open all the way 2) some machines have a screen inside of the hose hook up which could be clogged. 3) last check to see if it is the hot or cold by switch your selector switch on your machine to hot then cold. If one of these positions eliminate the noise then the valve in the machine is bad.

Weird noises in drive and reverse


The high pitched whine in reverse sounds normal for a honda. Ever honda I have had makes a similar noise while in reverse. The spinning, scraping noise in drive is not normal. You might want to see a mechanic about that.

Dishwasher Making Loud High Pitched Noise.


A loud high pitch whine while running the dishwasher means that there is something caught in the chopper assembly. To get to the chopper assembly you need to take the racks out and take the pump apart from the inside of the dishwasher. The chopper assembly looks like a metal grate with holes in it. And it might not even be stuck in the grate but somewhere in the pump area due to the water being pumped out, so the best idea is to take the whole thing apart and clean everywhere. However I do not recommend doing this unless you are completely certain you will remember where the screws and gaskets go, otherwise you risk damaging your pump or house from a leak or improper installation. You have been warned.
