SOURCE: Squeak upon spinning
Hi, I wanted to comment on this because I have the Majestic MJ9200 Washing machine front load for the RV. I am having the exact same problem and I cannot use my machine at this time. This is NOT an unbalanced load problem. An unbalanced load will cause a loud banging noise because the drum is off balance. There is something wrong inside your machine. Mine never had this problem before either and an unbalanced load does not cause this horrible screech while on the spin cycle. My machine like yours made the noise only on certain spin speeds, high 1500 rpm spin the first time and when I adjusted the spin cycle just to see what happened it stopped making that horrible noise. I washed another load and it began that same screetch while spinning and it was then in all RPM ratios available on my model.
My husband took the top off the machine and could not see anything evident but when looking into the front of the machine we could tell that is seems the interior drum is much looser in the washing machine than in the dryer. There are two drums on the front load. A larger outer drum and a smaller inner drum. The inner drum is what is looser in our machine and the noise is a very loud screetch while spinning the water out of the clothes.
Is your machine under any kind of warranty? Mine is not and I am waiting to get it fixed.
Good luck on getting yours fixed and perhaps we can both help each other out on this one although we have different brands of machines...

If you spin the drum by hand, and it is niosy and rumbling then the main drum bearings have failed.
If under 5 years old, then you should be able to get it repaired under Hotpoint 5 year guarantee, You just pay for labour and call out, cheapest option, it is not really a D.I.Y job, as it is quite involved, and entails a lot of work.
Please rate my advice.

Loks that your machine is pretty old and hence the belt has hardened making a squeaking noise.
Good fix is get a new drive belt.
Quick fix is you could put some oil on the drive belt..... it will work for now but not a permenant solution.

The inner bearing will be faulty kindly replace the inner bearings as well as water seal before that kindly check whether the drum is freely moving with out any shaking If you find any shaking means you are suppose to change the drum only
