Sounds like you have bad bearings. I suggest you get it fixed before it creates further issues.

High pitch whining noise happening during spin cycle. Thoughts on what the issue might be?


Worn bearing on drum. The bearing can be replaced but the machine needs to be stripped right down.

How do I fix a high pitch noise when spinning?


If your washing machine is making a high-pitched whine or squealing noise while running, the main culprit is usually worn motor bearings. To check the motor bearings, remove the belt and run the motor by itself, listening for the noise. If it makes the noise, than the problem is most likely the result of worn motor bearings.

Whirlpool Calypso Mod: GVW9959KQ2, stops and shows "ob" as code for fast final spin. Also making high pitched whine during wash cycle. Appl svce place has suggested bearing or xmission. Any possible...


Sorry to say but they are right. The Calypso washer was a horible design given to whirlpool from maytag. I would suggest you go buy new machine. Buy someting that looks simple and easy to use. The more complicated the unit the more problems you will have down the road.

FRIGIDARE FRONT LOAD WASHER,2+YRS OLD ON FINAL HIGH SPEED SPIN MACHINE MAKES LOUD VIBRATION NOISE AND FIND NEED TO SHUT DOWN DUE TO FRANTIC VIBRATION AND NOISE.


It is possible the bearings on the motor that spins the canister could be going bad especially at the high speed. This could also be from clothes getting unbalanced in the final spin cycle. Hope this helps. This could still possibly under warranty!

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.

Peace bumbabob,

Huuum t your service!

1-it may be the belt squealing or high pitched noises telling you it wants to go!
2- It more than likely is the rolling suspension that the drum spins on! I've seen the older models with one of 3 wheels that the drum rolls on is worn and wobbling or screaming or screeching etc.
3- I've seen also a few times that the motors heat shield, a simple piece if tin with two screws or bolts holding it down was "loose" and vibrating causing a loud metal squeal noise all the time or intermittently!!
If I were there hands on I could fix it!

Only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.


Unfortunately, another point to consider!!
How old is the appliance?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

You will be fine
Bless You ngafm1

Whining noise, only in rinse and spin cycle, sounds awful.


Check the pump to make sure there isn't something stuck in it.
