Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

you have a defective bearing, it can be the drum bearing, or the belt tension pulley. the reason it stops..the unit heats up and the metal expands.
If you happen to take off the covers, you can try a spray WD40 on the belt tension pully

High pitched squeal when starting car


Sounds like a belt, and possibly the one on the power steering pump which may be the sepentine belt. Could be caused by power steering pump pulley resistance or the belt tensioner bearing. Try a visual check with motor running. Be careful of moving parts!

Wahser makes loud noise trying to stop spin cycle It seemed to spin ok and agitate but made terrible noise when trying to stop


Take the belt off and run the motor alone if you hear a high pitched squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or wear. If you still hear the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing. but more than likely its the brakes, or the belt itself ,, a solinoid signals the machine to stop which in turn applies brakes just like a car only smaller, when these wear they tend to do the same as a car and squeal , its just an indication your machine is up for some maintenance,

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.

Dryer makes squealing noise when running. What's wrong?


the idler or tensioner wheel that your belt rides on has a bearing in the center of it. This bearing is going out causing the high pitched squeal your hearing

I have a 1994 nissan pathfinder...there is a high pitched squeal coming from the engine, what might this be? sounds maybe like a bearing, but not sure what bearing, or even where these bearings are...


Hi,
That squeal could be just the belts, when starting at cold belts tendency is to slip and made some sounds. Check on that in early morning and start your engine and look at your engine to identify the sounds.
The bearing would be in the idler bearing that tightens belt of your aircon compressor.
Hope that helps you out!
Thanks for using Fixya!

Maytag electric dryer is making a high pitched noise


The squealing noise is from the belt tensioner. Replace the pulley only on the tensioner along with a new belt. The bearing in the pulley is causing the squeal. Sears will sell this in a kit. The top and the front panel of the dryer will have to be removed to replace these parts

The fans in my 1983 nissan sentra just stopped.


It is most likely a pulley that needs oiling or replacement. If fans are ran by a belt, the fan clutch may be stuck or pulley is seized.
If the fans are electric, the motors may have fried or relay is shot.
