Re: high pitch sound
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.

No. The high pitched noise did not originate in the control panel but rather in a part of the machine that was chafing or rubbing against something. And now the mechanism is stuck. Check for that first before messing with a control panel.
to chek what is wrong follow the bellow instruction.... Check the motor bearings If your washing machine is making a high-pitched whine or squealing noise while running, the main culprit is usually worn motor bearings. To check the motor bearings, remove the belt and run the motor by itself, listening for the noise. If it makes the noise, than the problem is most likely the result of worn motor bearings and has nothing to do with issues in the rest of the washer. Check for Obstructions Sometimes coins, bra underwires and other metal objects come loose in the wash and become stuck between the tub and the drum. Using a flashlight, take a good look inside the washing machine. If you see dents, scratches or dings, that's a sign that there either are or have been items bouncing around in there that can make a horrible racket. Check for Grease Spatter A high-pitched squealing can be caused when the grease thins around the bearing that's located under the tub. Open up the washing machine and check the interior for grease spatters or spots. That could mean that the grease has thinned out around the bearing and it's making the noise because of rubbing. Check the Drum for Irregularities Spin the drum by hand, listening for the noise. If it makes the noise in the same spot with each rotation, the problem could be with the washing machine drum itself. Parts of the drum can corrode over time, leaving it vulnerable to cracks or rust.
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
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.
open top cover (two or three screws on rear and slide back) and look at rear of tub checking clearance to rear panel and nothing touching belt or pulley. whirlpools tend to have a high pitch low volume whine anytime motor operates. you really dont want to replace that bearing. part of tub assm. $400 part plus labor
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.
First locate were the sound is coming from.
put your ear very close to the timer and listen for this clicking sound.
remember a timer will make a clicking noise which makes the timer go around.
Timers can get noisey with age.
The sound might be coming from below also .I would run your washing machine until the part fails.
They might also have a motor controller in this unit which is seperate to the timer which will make a high pitch clicking noise.
