Yes. You have rust inside the motor possibly from a blown pump seal. If you replace the pump seal, and with sand paper remove most of the rust from the shaft the pump should be ok.

Noisy squeel when simpson ezeset 550 washer is spin drying


You need to determine if it is the drain pump or not, these can squeal when pumping due to wear inside, if it is not coming from the pump then it could be either the belt or worse case it is the drum seal. It's just a matter of pinpointing the noise

When I turn the key on and hear the high-pitched whining noise (it's not very loud), the bike starts. No noise, no start. It's intermittent. Failed once on the road. Took to the local Honda shop twice....


That would be my first guess!! If you locate the fuel pump you can try tapping on it and see if it becomes intermittant. Or if it isn't too much just go ahead and change it. Expecially if it left you stranded once already. Sincerely HDTV GURU JAY

My pump has a high pitched whine. Are there likely bearings out?


Yes...as the motor bearings wear they will get louder and louder. A common cause for bearing failure is a leaking seal. If you have any signs of a water leak or if the pump seal is more than a few years old you'll want to replace that when you get the bearings.

If you are handy and understand bearing replacement you can get the parts for less than $20. If not, a typical repair at an electric motor repair shop for something like this is ~$80 if all it needs is bearings to get it going again.

My Polaris PB4 pump has always made more noise than the main pool pump. now it makes a high pitched sound. i took the pump apart and greased the shaft but this was unsuccessful. after reinstalling i...


The motor manufacturers do not offer cut-away or parts diagrams. Parts such as bearings are purchased thru power transmission outlets locally. Parts for the pump should be found at a local pool store that sells the equipment. You will likely need a new set of 203 bearings, a flange gasket and mechanical seal. All told, the parts should be less than $40.

I have a DREAMMAKER SPA (6 months old) with a 2 speed HYBRID PUMP. It has developed a high pitched whistle or whine when running. Is this a bearing? Could there be some stuff stuck in the impeller??


90% chance it is indeed the bearings. It is possible something could be stuck in the impeller causing noise, but not usually a high pitched whine. If you see water leaking, or calcium buildup where the pump meets the motor, then the shaft seal has failed and that is what's causing the bearing failure. Either way you'll need to replace the motor or have the bearings replaced. Look for a local pool pump repair shop (or some pool supply stores replace bearings as well). They should check the motor out for free and give you estimate to to repair/rebuild, or a price on a new motor if that's what you need/want. Hope this helps. If you need further assistance post a reply in the comments, and don't hesitate to leave a good thumb rating if you found this helpful. Thanks, and good Luck!

Our pump is making a high-pitched noise but is still operating properly. Are the bearings going and it needs replacement?


Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

Your motor bearings are failing. It is most often caused by a leaking pump seal. It is a relatively inexpensive repair if it is caught early enough; before the shaft is damaged from the corrosive water eating into the steel. Take it to a local electric motor repair shop for inspection. It will likely need a set of 203 bearings for the motor and a mechanical seal for the pump. All told, depending on the labor rates, it should be less than $75. You could try to repair this yourself however if you are not familiar with the process it is money well spent having someone who is do the repair for you.

High pitched squeel


Squealing is a bad wash motor- it will need replacing. Nothing is blocked here.

Very hot alternator after just replacing and a high pitch squeel


THE ALTERNATOR CAN GO OUT DUE TO A WEAK OR BAD BATTERY CAUSING IT TO OVERCHARGE TRYING TO KEEP UP WITH DEMAND ON THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM. IT WILL HAVE A HIGH PITCH NOISE WHILE CHARGING AT A HIGH RATE AND FINALLY IT TO WILL GO BAD.

HAVE THE BATTERY TESTED AND CHECK THE CHARGE RATE AT THE ALTERNATOR AND AT THE BATTERY.
