Sounds like your coupler is going bad and you have dragging brake shoes (this is the squealing, not a pump), potentially a serious problem to get fixed soon. Not a "hustand" job. Get a pro.

My dishwasher is making these horrible screeching sounds during the wash cycle !! It's a stainless steel fridgdaire dishwasher about 5 yrs old


Open up the door, try spinning the cross fan to see if you can replicate the sounds if it does, check the fastener to see if it's either too loose or too tight, either of which can create such sounds.

Screeching sound remains


Your AC pump is starting to faiL. It's starting to bind and putting heavy back pressure on the belt causing it slip and screech. After the car cools off inside, the load on the AC compressor is lower and the sound will die down. Also when the belt gets hot it gets a little more flexible and grippy which also lowers sound.

Take it to an auto AC repair place and have it checked.

Will only run if i push in the top control panel then stops until i push again kudp01lwh6


Sounds like the door switch isn't being activated all the time. Make sure nothing is binding the racks which could be pressing against the door when closed. Also you can try bending the door latch a little to see if it holds better. Also make sure the dishwasher isn't installed too tightly in its place. You may need to lower the leveling legs a bit. May need to replace the door latch if those don't help.

I have a Frigidaire Gallery dishwasher with model # GLDB958JB0 and it started to make a screeching noise only after a few mins into the wash cycle. I took out the filter and made sure there was noting...


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

The problem is with the impeller or the chopper assembly that is causing this screeching noise. You can take apart the bottom front access panel and clean the drain pump assembly completely and check for any broken parts inside that need replacement. If the problem returns then replacing the impeller/drain pump-motor assembly is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Dryer makes screeching noise runs for awhile then shuts off.


The 1,5 year new dryer makes a terrible screaching noise when it has a load of clothes in it. It still dries fine, no problem with the heating element. No noise without clothes, only when it has a load.

Dishwasher loud in beginning cycle and drains early


sounds like you have 2 problems however generally speaking (most makes) of dishwashers go into drain mode when there is a fault elsewhere, however is this set up properly, is the waste pipe end high enough to allow the water to actually fill up (only about 30cms of water aprox)so it doesn't flow straight though to the waste. the noise could just be an empty pump, it runs dry after a while, and makes a screeching noise eventually? check installation pictures to see if its set up right, you may have also a leak somewhere check all other connections and pipes
