    Bless you! I did my best to follow your directions and it worked... our washer and dryer are stacked so I didn't even take off the cover to get at it. I just took out the soap dispenser and injected wd40 into the top left groove between the washer body and the plastic case that holds the dispenser cartridge (as far as I could go). I couldn't fit the wd40 straw in there so I shot it through the wd40 straw into another straw that I had slipped into the crack and let it drip in. I then ran the rinse/spin cycle without any clothes in it and NO SQUEAK!

I had a problem with the Left Spring the hold the drum up. I took the cover off and started the machine to be sure that I got the right squeak.

The soap dispenser was in the way to get some WD40 to the spring. I would have to remove the front panel to get at the spring. I didn't like that idea.

I got a brainwave. I fill a cup with some WD40, got a plastic straw with a bendable neck and **** up a little oil, pinched the straw to stop the WD falling out, I slipped the straw down the side of the dispenser right over the spring and let it drop.

Work like a charm, no more squeak

When driving or starting the car i notice when using the brakes it makes a squeaking noise - not all the time think its possibly damp causing it as it was raining yesterday and it happened but no rain...


To address your first problem squeaking brakes aka "brake squeal", is most often casued by one or 2 things: "Pad vibration" or a "low brake warning sensor".

Pad vibation is usually caused by ineffective pad anti-rattling clips & hardware that allow the pads to vibrate at a super fast speed whenever the brakes are applied, thus causing a high pitch brake squeal. To correct this, replace all the pad hardware and anti-rattling clips and make sure you use a quality pad set that has anti-rattling plates attached to the backs of them. Weather conditions do affect brake squeal, that is why it seems to be worse at times.

Low brake warning sensor squeal occurs when your brake pads reach the point of replacement, the sensor attached to the pads scrapes on the rotor which produces a high pitch squealing sound to warn you it's time for new pads.

As far as your second problem goes (a knocking sound), I'll need more information about the problem before I can offer a possible cause (eg. happens on left or right turns, while going over bumps, at high or low speeds, accellerating...).

With every step I get squeak / chirp while running on treadmill.


Check the knob used to hold it up in the folded position. While running, have someone pull it to the out position. That was the problem on mine. If it is, a little grease on the end of the rod should do it.

Front end squeaking possible rotor rubbing something.


Have you checked the metal clips that olds the brake pads in the front galiper bracket. They usualy rust, break loose and come in contact whit the disc, creating a squeaking noise. Those should be replace since they are needed for the brakes to work properly

Squeak from front left wheel...


It could probabely be the brake pads ,some cars have worning light come on and others have this little projection of steel piece working as warning tht the pads needs replacement.
Remove the front wheel andyou will be able to see the brake calipers and the pads.
Good luck.
