Question about Maytag Washing Machines
Sounds like a problem with either the idler pulley or the serpentine belt. If a belt is loose or worn it may slip when the alternator is working hard. Alternators work extra hard for several minutes after first starting the engine. They do that to recharge the battery after you've taken a lot of electrical energy to start the engine. The extra electrical energy is normal at startup, but if it's making a loud noise it is usually an indication of a loose belt or slipping because of a worn spring on the idler.
BTW, you posted this under Maytag washing machines; last I checked a Silverado isn't even closely related to a washing machine... just trying to help.
