Question about Washing Machines
Machine is less than 3 years old and it is squealing loudly during the wash and spin cycles.
SQUEALING NOISE FROM BACK OF MACHINE NEAR THE END OF EACH CYCLE AND CLICKING NOISE DURING CYCLE.
Maytag PAV3200 squeals during rinse and spin, but belt tension is good. What else could it be?

occurs due to belt slippage. I would check your belts (look for cracks.
Check the belt tension as well, most washers have an adjustment,
normally on the motor that allows you to increase the tension of the
If part of a belt gets torn and it is long enough, it will hit any part of the washing machine within range and make a clicking noise at every revolution of the motor.
I am pretty sure you need new belts. You should be able to remove a few screws and open the back cover. Between the pulleys there is a tensioner...loosen that so you can remove the belt easily. replace it with a new belt and adjust the tension.
hope this helps
