Question about Washing Machines
Squealing sound in spin cycle
Might be the drive belt slipping on the pulley. The belt that supplies the power from the main motor to the drum sometimes slips at higher speeds and needs the belt tensioner adjusted to tighten the belt. A more expensive reason for the noise is a worn bearing in the main motor.

The spin cycle activates the fast mode on the motor, squealing normal occurs due to belt slippage. I would check your belts (look for cracks. Check the belt tension as well, most washers have an adjustment, normally on the motor that allows you to increase the tension of the belt.

If part of a belt gets torn and it is long enough, it will hit any part of the washing machine within range and make a clicking noise at every revolution of the motor.
I am pretty sure you need new belts. You should be able to remove a few screws and open the back cover. Between the pulleys there is a tensioner...loosen that so you can remove the belt easily. replace it with a new belt and adjust the tension.
hope this helps
