The fill switch may have failed or the tube to it broke. Anyway, the machine probably is too full of water for it to start to spin out, so it slips on the belt and that makes noise.
The machine is going to be very heavy if it is overfull, but try to let some water out. Maybe you can just lower the drain hose way down into a bucket and get some water out of it. Once it's low enough, it may be able to pump out the rest. Then you can find out about the fill switch.
If it's not overfull, then some hose came loose or broke.

    Thankyou!! awesome. we have drained it and the lights are working etc. But where is the 'fill switch' to check?

    The fill switch will be on the end of a small hose coming from low on the tub. It usually looks like a flying saucer. Check to see if it clicks when you fiddle with the adjuster screw, which usually is sealed. If it doesn't click, it may be faulty. They are not expensive.

SOURCE: gentle annie motor wiring

This according to googled results, and somewhat verified by me:

For the Gentle Annie connect the white/orange/green wires together to from a
star point and the three other ends (red, yellow & blue) go to your 3 phase
rectifier.
You can leave the others hanging. Don't form the star point with the wire
that's green with a yellow stripe, that's the chassis earth. The brown,
purple, and brown with black stripe I think are sensing coils, with a star
point connected to the black wire. 1.4ohm each, whereas the main coils are
4.8ohm and apparently rated for 5A.

SOURCE: LG makes a high pitched sound during water add cycle

Hello.
The high pitched sound is a definite sign that the water valve in use is failing. The squeal is from a restricted water flow through the valve because it is not opening all the way. You will need to choose cold or hot to narrow down which valve is bad and replace that one.

Make sure there is voltage going to the valve solenoids. That is what opens up and lets water into the washer. You will have to open up the top of the washer control. The valve assembly is where the hoses screw in the back. I don't have the technical on it but most likely should be 120V. Sometimes the valve goes bad and won't open up.

SOURCE: my dryer makes this high pitch screaming

In the cradle where the center drum bearing fits is a plastic bearing mounted on a metal bracket. When that plastic bearing wears down the ball begins to contact the metal bracket. Bad things are ahead also. Because now as the drum turn the bracket is cutting into the ball.c44ef56.jpg

Dishwasher starts and gets somewhat filled then starts making a high pitched screaming


Hello,

The reason the dishwasher gives the high pitch screaming is because there is some sort of system error in it.

Try to troubleshoot it from the procedure in the users manual, to detect the fault and fix it.

Take care

Are you getting a high pitch screaming or a grinding noise? The Fan on the heatsink sometimes getting clogged with dust and over time this can cause the computer to turn itself off. Dependant on a high pitch scream this could be a number of problems, memory modules loose or faulty?? Would need more info about the type of sound..

High pitched car sounds


does the noise and light occour at the same time ? another cause of a high pitched noise can be slipping drive belts, alternator,powersteering etc so check them for tightness, condition etc, does the noise happen when car staionary and just rev the engine ? if so i would say it is the drive belt/s, go back to the VW dealer re the ABS light and get them to check the OBD as should be done as part of the service , hope this helps

Screaming acer!


sometimes if the inverter board (the part that drives the backlight) has a cold solder joint on it, it can actually generate a high pitched resonating sound (aka a screaming squeal sound)

if it's under warranty, have the manufacturer correct the problem.

if not under warranty, retouch the solder points on the inverter board, or have a repair tech fix it for you.
