Could be motor bearing or the Belt, make sure the pump is clear and pumping okay in case problem here.Not always a good idea to lubricate a bearing as it can cause premature failure.

SOURCE: whirlpool awm8121 - spin cycle high pitch sound/scretch

Front loaders are great for savings on water and electricity. Most of these machines only use about 5 to 7 gallons (US) of water and spin with a velocity anywhere between 1300 to 1800 rpms. This also saves on dry times because your clothes are virtually spun dry. Why am I telling you all this? People buy them with good intentions, but the common complaint I hear is that they are noisy. It is this spin velocity that contributes to that noise. You need to make sure that the foundation under the washer is stable. If your washer is located in a mobile home, upstairs laundry room, home with a crawl space, etc., sometimes these floors have a tendency to flex as the washer spins. If the floor flexes (even a little) the washer will vibrate and make noise. An easy fix to help redistribute to weight of the washer is to place a sheet of thick (at least 3/4" in the US) plywood under the washer to help reinforce the floor. This must be screwed down or affixed in such a way that it does not move. This will take care of any vibrating issues. Now, if your problem is strictly with noise from the machine, some of that is normal I'm afraid to say. However, if it sounds REALLY loud (like a rumble) this is a symptom of a rear bearing that is going bad. If that is the case, the entire back shell of the wash tub has to be replaced in order to replace the bearing as they are molded into the plastic. This can be an expensive repair job if you decide to pursue this option. Let me know if any of this helps. Kinda hard for me to diagnose without being there to hear it.

SOURCE: high pitched screeching noise when in spin cycle

Sounds like something is in the pump or the pump bearing went bad. The pump runs CONSTANTLY in agitate, it runs backwards and spin and drain the motor reverses, so if there's something in it, it'll make noise the entire time.

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.

Our whirlpool top loading washer starts making a high pitched whirring noise in the beginning of the first spin cycle. Once it gets going full speed the noise stops. What could be?


If you can hear the motor humming during the spin cycle, it could signal a defective motor drive. It's possible for the motor to fail in just one direction, which may be why you only hear it some times.

This kind of issue often requires the help of a professional. To learn more about this issue, read Washing machine will not spin but will pump and agitate. I hope this helps.

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.

The washing unit makes a high pitched loud noise


Check to see if you have a bra underwire or nail stuck in the spin tub. Look around inside the tub looking for something stuck in one of the holes. Dont use the machine until you find the problem or you cut the tub in half with like a nail or screw and then the machine has to be rebuilt $$$$

You may have other problems, However start here. Let me know if you have other questions

Dishwasher Making Loud High Pitched Noise.


A loud high pitch whine while running the dishwasher means that there is something caught in the chopper assembly. To get to the chopper assembly you need to take the racks out and take the pump apart from the inside of the dishwasher. The chopper assembly looks like a metal grate with holes in it. And it might not even be stuck in the grate but somewhere in the pump area due to the water being pumped out, so the best idea is to take the whole thing apart and clean everywhere. However I do not recommend doing this unless you are completely certain you will remember where the screws and gaskets go, otherwise you risk damaging your pump or house from a leak or improper installation. You have been warned.
