High Pitch sound during spin cycle

When machine is running during the spin cycle there is a high pitch noise heard, otherwise running fine! Is it possible the tub is off balance? Any other suggestions?

    washer works fine except spin cycle is very loud. Not a high pitch sound...just loud...magnitude is like a car with, versus without a muffler.



    Any ideas?

    we had the same high pitch squeeling on our washer. i knew it wasn't right, and sure enough, a few days later, the rear bearing went out. Called Sears to set up a repair. i had the washer pulled out and the back off to save time on the repair. the repair guy told us 590 to repair it. 400 for a new tub, as the bearing is bulit into the tub, and can't be replace without replacing the tub. $190 for the labor. a 3 year old machine finished because of a bad bearing?? and we're out the cost we paid just 3 years ago, plus the cost of a new one. Well, we certainly know we won't ever buy another GE ANYTHING again.. EVER. Boy are we feeling BURNED!

You can buy rubber pads at the home center that damper the vibrations.
The high pitch noise could be an object stuck between tubs.

The washer quits at rinse and spin dry cycle


I've had the same experience with my Speed Queen washer. Approached the accredited Speed Queen agents for assistance, when tech support was deployed to diagnose the problem.
In the end, I was told that the "timer" went bust. So the wash cycle seems to work 100%, but when it comes to rinse and spin the contacts on the timer don't make contact, and the motor waits in anticipation for it's next command, and that the high pitch noise heard.

High pitched buzz/whine during wash cycle only, spin fine


1) Make sure valve is open all the way 2) some machines have a screen inside of the hose hook up which could be clogged. 3) last check to see if it is the hot or cold by switch your selector switch on your machine to hot then cold. If one of these positions eliminate the noise then the valve in the machine is bad.

Load squeal when it in the agitation cycle.


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
