The squelling you are hearing are the bearings on the motor. The only way to fix the problem is to replace the motor. The part number on the motor is 279827 and price is around $105

I have a loud squealing noise upon starting the car. the squealing normally lasts about 30-45 seconds. sometimes the noise will appear aftrer pulling off from a stopped position, as well. all belts

Try to tighten the belts a little firm.Sounds like when engine idling no squelling only when about to take off .Some times belts may seem ok on the outside but if you look on inner side you tend to see cracks in the belts .

2007 forester squells at start up and then quits in a few seconds

More than likely you have either a worn belt that need to be replaced or you have the belt tensioner freezing up. If you have more than 60,000 miles on it consider changing the belt, while you're at it look at the tensioner if it feels like it doesn't turn smoothly or has a lot of side to side play on the wheel then you'll need to replace it before it leave you stranded on the side of the road.

Dryer starts then makes aweful noise then stops timer keeps ticking then when you try to start it again it doesnt do anything

If it is a grinding noise then it is probably a bad bearing. If it is more a squell it could be the belt slipping in addition to a bad bearing. If it is a banging sound it could be the belt.

A few days ago my serptene belt flew off. I replaced the next day, then i had to replace the tensioner pulley. I started the truck and every thing seemed fine. Then i turned the truck off and inpected...

you could have an alternator problem, I am wandering if the serptene belt is on properly or tight. if the belt is slipping and not turning the alternator pulley then it will not charge you battery and if you drive it the new battery will go dead and the alternator is not charging it so it will not start.
i would charge the battery and start the car and watch the belt and the alternator and see if the pulley is turning, they will also make a squelling sound if loose.
hope this helps

Maytag dryer - makes squelling noise when you turn it on

Your glides are getting thin. Not unlike that of shoes on an automobile the glide will wear down and start the old metal to metal screaching.
Get the front off and get the drum out. Remove the glides and replace them. Or flip them over if you are
a cheapskate. LOL Use this GUIDE that tells how to access yer dryer innards and a lot of other cool stuff. Hay I wrote it!

Dryer squelles

the sound is thr support rollers or the idler pully, the support rollers located under the drum to the back the pully holds the belt tight. look for meatle shavings or rust dust on rollers.
