Yes it could be the pop off pressure relief on the compressor.
I assume it is the outdoor fan your referring to not running.
If this is a heat pump and it is in defrost (only in the heating mode should your outdoor fan be off and then for only a max of 12 to 15 minutes).
If it is just AC ir is Heat pump in cool mode, the out door fan should run while the compressor and indoor fan are on. Until the thermostat is satisfied on room temp.
This high pitched squealing is indicative of a bad fan motor or capacitor for the out door fan motor. Kill power and test blades to see if turns free. Check the run capacitor inside control panel. It is usually silver or aluminum colored (some are painted gray). The top should be flat with rolled edges and the sides should either be round or oval shaped with no swelling or oil leaking from inside it. If this all looks normal take it to where your going to get a motor any way and ask them to check it or sell you a replacement at the same time. These can go out usually from high voltage (lighting...) or from over heating (bad fan motor, dirty out door coil...).
Hope this helps you if not post back I'll respond as soon as I can. And please rate me as high as you can. Thank you for using Fix ya and good luck.

You may need to replace the timer motor. I believe you can purchase this part directly from the little gray box company - not their name, as you know - Find the company name on the label inside the box.

I just repaired this exact model this weekend. If the machine will drain but doesn't agitate or spin (you have to put a screwdriver in the lid switch to see), it's usually a loose belt. This time I replaced the belt, but it still would not agitate or spin, and the motor was not turning, just a "buzz, buzz, buzz" when the washer attempted to supply power to the motor. The start capacitor for the motor was bad. Part number 3429938 which runs about $60. Not hard to access once you tip the washer over slightly, just DISCHARGE THE OLD CAPACITOR so you don't get a nasty shock.

• Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked • Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is
running. • Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects • If the above does not correct the problem replace the pump
The motor control unit senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on the drive motor. If "Sud" is displayed a potential suds lock is detected. This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds.
