What could be causing the loud shrieking noise on spin only? It's also making a little bumping noise - not a lot, but it's there.

It is usually the bearings that cause the shrieking noise if you have a belt on it it could be needing straightened on the pulley and if you take the belt off and try and turn the drum and listen to see if it is the bearings slightly grinding they may have got water into them. The only other unit is the motor. The bumping noise can be caused if maybe a sock or something that can get between the drum and the casing also some washing machines have shockers and some have springs on top that can break through time and wear and this causes it to be unbalanced.

I think I broke a gear in my washing machine... It makes a knocking noise

you have these springs ,that help keep the tub from bumping into the casing .go behind the washer look under the tub part see if you can find a spring mounted on an arm there then look on the other side .if one of them is missing look under the washer ,find and slide spring back into it's is what balances the load.
i had that happen to my washer and my friend showed me how to fix it just in case it happened again.
banged around only in spin.hope this will help you.

Front end makes noise when driving down the road, front brakes were just replaced but not the rotors, could they be warped

Locate an overpass. Drive slowly under it and open the front window and listen for the noise.If you hear a growling noise its the wheel bearings. Do the same for the rears only this time open the rear windows. You can also lift the vehicle offf the ground and spin each wheel and listed for the growling. Rotors don't make noise they usually give you a pulsating pedal if they are out of round.

Makes a loud bumping noise when washing.

About 76 cents worth.

We have had this machine for about 18 months with one
service call which involved the pump being replaced. Of
course that didn't fix the noise problem.

There are two tabs in the front of the washer that have to be
pushed in for the lid to be raised. There is a plastic shroud
around the top of the drum that comes off by snapping the tabs
and disconnecting one hose. In the center of the drum at the
bottom is a plastic cover plate over the bolt that secures the
drum to the drive shaft. Pop that off with a screwdriver and
remove the bolt with a 7/16 " socket and rachet. Grab the
drum under the lip at the top and pull it out of the washing
machine. Maybe you'll find enough change to buy a coffee.
There is also a plate held by two 1/4" screws at the back.
You might remove those screws and see if there is any more
change there.

Hope this works for you.
