Question about Washing Machines

Our washing machine is making a high-pitched squeaky noise when it's spinning. It's a Whirlpool, model number LSN1000JQ0. It does not have a drive belt from what I understand. Thank you.

You don't have a belt but a direct drive with a coupling. You also have a brake and clutch. When the clutch shoes wear out you have metal to metal rubbing during spinning. This will make lots of noise. You can replace the parts. Part 1 on this diagram shows the brake and part 5 shows the clutch. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=257534&diagram_id=85741#d85741

    Thank you for the solution. Do you believe both items need to be replaced? The washing machine is about 10yrs. old. Are these items worth repairing or is it time to get a new one-- I know it's a personal decision, but what do you think? Do we need to hire someone to replace these parts or is it something we should be able to handle? I have repaired several appliances before in our house.

    The repair is not difficult. I would disassemble the part to determine where the wear is. It's not an expensive part and if everything else seems to be working good I would make the repair.

Our whirlpool top loading washer starts making a high pitched whirring noise in the beginning of the first spin cycle. Once it gets going full speed the noise stops. What could be?


If you can hear the motor humming during the spin cycle, it could signal a defective motor drive. It's possible for the motor to fail in just one direction, which may be why you only hear it some times.

This kind of issue often requires the help of a professional. To learn more about this issue, read Washing machine will not spin but will pump and agitate. I hope this helps.

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.

Washing machine wont spin and making a loud clicking noise. I think its the solenoid valve. Will that cause it not to spin.


Sounds like the drive coupler between the motor and the gearcase assembly is bad/worn out causing the noise and no spin. Would need a model number to help more.

The washing unit makes a high pitched loud noise


Check to see if you have a bra underwire or nail stuck in the spin tub. Look around inside the tub looking for something stuck in one of the holes. Dont use the machine until you find the problem or you cut the tub in half with like a nail or screw and then the machine has to be rebuilt $$$$

You may have other problems, However start here. Let me know if you have other questions
