Frigidiare washing machine squeaks in spin cycle

It squeaks when it is in the spin cycle. I have a Frigidaire gsws1749as2 top loading washer. There is a loud squeal/squeak that starts after the machine spins for a few minutes. The squeal changes pitch when I open the lid and the spin cycle slows down. if I let the machine come to almost a full top, the noise stops and I can close the lid & the spin cycle completes silently. I have run the machine with the front cover off and tried to isolate the noise, but I have had no luck. It sounds to me like it may be a dry bearing. I felt the bearings on the tub & transmission to see if maybe they were hot, but everything was cool to the touch.

    Throw it away! Ain't worth it! Rear bearing is giving up so you would need inner and outer drum triangular prolly about 400$ parts.

My washer, Frigidaire #CWS3600AS0, is smoking and squeaking when it's in spin cycle. Any idea what could cause this and is it fixable?


You need to replace the drive belt at the bottom of your machine. It has become stretched and worn from use. Fairly easy repair.

GE Washer Model WJRR4170E4WW squeaks while agitating


There are four suspension rods that the tub hangs on. When the washer is agitating the tub will rock back and forth and the rods will move back and froth as well. To fix this noise, lift up in each rod and put some lubricant in the cup that the rods fit into at the top of the washer.

Note that it is best if you use a lithium-based lubricant rather than silicone based lubricant.

Squeaking Top Load GE Washer


I bought a new GE Washer GTWN5050MWS yesterday. From the first load it squeaked each time the tub moved back and forth (no agitator in the infusion type) It is a quick squeak and kind of resembles a cat getting it's tail under a moving rocking chair. I checked the entire owners manual and it describes several noises and not one of them describes what my new washer is doing. It does not make this sound except for when it is in the wash cycle. Spinning is quiet, and during the agitation of the rinse cycle it is a much more subdued squeak. But during the wash cycle it is not acceptable.

I called GE this morning and they told me it was normal operation for all infuser types of their washer to make this noise. Tomorrow I will be taking it back for a full refund.

We purchased this machine because our 2-year old front loading GE washer broke down (discharge pump I think) and to get it fixed usually takes a couple of weeks. We thought it might be better to have a 2nd washing machine instead of paying the laundry mat. It took a month to get the last one declared unfixable in 2008. Maybe I was wrong. But this is very bad luck to have a brand new washing machine squeak so loud out of the box.
