Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

Hello - I have a Kenmore Laundry Center model 417.94862302. Now and then the washer makes a high pitched screeching sound that turns into the sound of a whistle during the final spin. I figured the loads are too heavy but that doesn't always seem to be the case. What is wrong? If it needs to be repaired, how much should it cost? Thanks for your help! This is a great forum. Jana

I think the problem points to worn brushes on the motor. If you are able to replace them yourself if not seek out a qualified technician. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Loud banging noise during final high speed spin

I have the HE3T which is 6 yo. Last week it started making a loud banging noise in the spin cycle. I had a repairman come out. He said it is the drum bearings. He said that it is a problem with these machines and to call Sears. He said that the drum and bearing is one assembly and that Sears should cover it.

I called today and Sears todl me that I have to pay for a Sears technician to come out a determine if it is indeed the problem. If so, it will be covered under the lifetime warranty on the drum. I have to pay for the service call $75.00 and if it is the problem, I will be reimbursed. Cross my fingers!

I have a stacked Frigidaire FEZ831CA washer/dryer combo and when running the dryer it makes a very high pitched (AND LOUD) screeching sound. Any ideas as to what might be the problem? Thanks, Sean


screeching sound
Sean, Bad felt gasket body to drum, if belt drive on dryer, it could be worn and slipping, making a screech, or if not the belt, the drum may have a worn bearing on its hub allowing it to run crooked and rub where it should not.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Hi, I have a frigidaire front load washer, model FTF2140ESO, that is making a high pitched screeching noise when it enters into the final spin cycle. The noise ramps up in volume as the drum spins faster....


Some times screws can work their way out near the drum and rub against the drum causing the squeak. You might have to take off the back of the washer and see if there is anything loose contacting the drum.

2006 Chrysler sebring High Pitch Noise Screeching Sound


The belt is slipping or the compressor and/or clutch is bad.
If the compressor won't turn freely with the engine off, it may be locked up which will make the belt screech.

My dryer makes this high pitch screaming noise...what's going on?


In the cradle where the center drum bearing fits is a plastic bearing mounted on a metal bracket. When that plastic bearing wears down the ball begins to contact the metal bracket. Bad things are ahead also. Because now as the drum turn the bracket is cutting into the ball.c44ef56.jpg

My range is making a siren (high pitched) sound. The control panel is not lit, but I can get heat on the burners. Kenmore Range Model 911.6408810. Unfortunately I can't put my hands on the owner's manual...


Hello- Gas valves sometimes find a flow rate or valve position that can cause noises from hums to screeches. However- if control is out, gas valve won't function normally anyway. Had trouble with mod # provided above to check on parts but control if still available runs around 250$ Gas regulator around 100$. Hope this helps. Thanks- ED
