This is the electronics whisteling. This is 'normal' on all electronically controlled machines. On some, it is louder than on others - even of the same model. As long as it continues to function properly, I wouldn't worry about it. If it's about to go out of warranty, you might try and see if the manufacturer will cover the replacement cost. But it's definitely not worth paying $300 to eliminate the whistle.

Good luck!

Panasonic th-42px600u high pitch sound


likely a coil or small transformer in the set is vibrating hard enough to make it squeel, it would have to be located with back off by listening to see where it comes from.

cure would be to replace the entire board it is on or hot glue the part that is causing this to dampen the sound.

If it is coming from the front screen unit that is a more serious issue.

The washing machine makes a high-pitched squeking


No, not if the noise is only when rinsing, if it makes the noise when spinning generally then possibly but if only noisy when rinsing sounds like a filter blockage on the waste pipe. clean out the filter behind the flap on the bottom of the front panel

LG makes a high pitched sound during water add cycle


Hello.
The high pitched sound is a definite sign that the water valve in use is failing. The squeal is from a restricted water flow through the valve because it is not opening all the way. You will need to choose cold or hot to narrow down which valve is bad and replace that one.

Maytag Epic Washer high spin shaking, AND high-pitched sound coming out of washer


When someone reports severe vibration during spin on a brand new washer, the first question always has to be whether the transit brackets have been left in.

Washers are designed so that the drum and motor float on a collection of springs and shock absorbers. To prevent damage to these during shipping, a set of brackets is used to bolt the floating assembly to the case. If these aren't removed before first use (the manual will say how to do it) havoc ensues.

The irritating whine is a new one on me.
