Peace Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!

1-it may be the belt squealing or high pitched nosies telling you it wants to go!
2- It more than likely is the rolling suspension that the drum spins on!I've seen the older models with one of 3 wheels that the drum rolls on is worn and wobbling or screaming or screeching etc.
3- I've seen also a few times that the motors heat shield, a simple piece if tin with two screws or bolts holding it down was "loose" and vibrating causing a loud metal squeal noise all the time or intermittently!!
If I were there hands on I could fix it!

Only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.

Below I referred you to a great service nation wide!
A&E Factory Service
A&E has schedulers available to take appointments 24/7
And they do warranty work too, for most manufactures!
1(800) 905-9505 near me they only charge $75 service call which is reasonable in today s market!

Unfortunely, another point to consider!!
How old is the appliance?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

You will be fine
Bless You ngafm1

Dehumidifier squeaks when running


Disconnect it, (DO NOT REPAIR WHILE CONNECTED), remove outer plastic casing (screws), lubricate moving parts with a little WD40 or similar. Re-assemble.
If you can get to the part that's squeaking with a long tube you could try spraying silicone lubricant spray on it without disassembling.

My car makes a humming noise when excellerating and is especcially noisey when turning steering wheel to the left. there is also a continous squeak. my husband put WD40 on the bolt on power steering box...


If WD-40 got on belt, and squeak went away for a while, it may just need a new belt. The humming noise sounds like a worn wheel bearing that should be checked and replaced if needed. If squeak goes away when you push slightly on brake pedal, it may be rotor on same side as wheel bearing making the noise due to slight shifting of rotor because of worn bearing.You can try swapping tires on front from one side to other to confirm it isn't tire problem as well. If noise shifts to other side, then it's a tire.

Washing machine makes a loud rattling sound


Hi.k.
Even though you have cleaned filter, there could still be something in the pump, you need to remove the pump and check there is nothing in it.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.

My Wii makes an annoying buzzing sound


I think thats normal. If your really annoyed about it, Play some music that cancels out the noise. I'm sure the in-game music your playing should go over the buzzing noise.

If you can get it apart, you should be able to fix it yourself. This is a tricky task though (I've seen customers spend hours just trying to change a belt, which you'll have to remove), so you may want to pay the money and have someone come out.

It is hard to say without hearing the noise for myself, but my best educated guess would be that the dryer drum bearing needs to be lubricated. You should lubricate it with white lithium grease, about 1.5 ounces of it.

In order to do this, you will have to take the dryer front off, remove the belt from underneath the drum and then remove the drum. You will see a bearing on the backside of the drum (looks like a post with a ball on it). You will see where that inserts on the back wall of the dryer. You should put the grease in the insertion point, then put the dryer back together again.
