    Hi



    Thanks for that. Forgot to mention that I recently sold the machine (on Ebay.co.uk) and it was transported (shipped I think you call it) by road 200 miles by the buyer in the back of his van, after which the squealing started. He took just as it was with no protection.

    Only time will tell if the information solves the problem. At least I know what to check.

The noise can be the motor generating the noise or the rubbing of the moving parts, the belt, the spindle bearings or the tub by itselt.
Now I am assuming all these could be the possibilities and I would like you to very the source of the noise that is coming out. You will need to look from the bottom of the washer with a good lighting, jack up the washer and while it runs carefully look on . I can be any of the above or a related one.
Once you ahve detected the noise source, shut off the machine and drain off, the lay it on the side to have an opne view. manually look for the sqeaking noise with the rotation of the motor or the tub.
You use good degreasing and oiling of the part that is contributing to the noise. However if it is with the motor, then it must be taken out and serviced. Also if the tub bearings can be another issue.
Check also if any plastics or metal is rubbing with the vibration
of the movement.

How do I fix a high pitch noise when spinning?


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.

Squealing noise during spin cycle


The spin cycle activates the fast mode on the motor, squealing normal 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 belt.

Um..... not quite sure....


Most likely the transmission on the motor has seized and will need to be repaired. Look under the washer, if there is black grease on the floor then its time to replace the motor and/or the transmission. If you have seen smoke then its probably the case.
