The howling (squealing) noise is likely the belt, if I had to make an educated guess. Of all the fixes you could be stuck with, that's one of the easier ones.


The reason I suggest that is because even though it probably isn't washing to its fullest potential either, you wouldn't really notice it, if it's still able to do a little agitation. Once the spin cycle kicks on, the motor applies a lot of power, and if the belt is loose, it'll spin that belt around the wheel, creating a really soothing and serene squealing noise, causing average humans to start seeking sharp objects with which to slice their wrists.

Loud noises during spin cycles


Hello, If the noise is a squealing or grinding sound, you are likely looking at a bad seal and bearing.
If the noise is a knocking sound, it's more likely a suspension or out of balance condition.
Thanks

Loud squealing noise during spin cycle.


Please keep in mind, I'm attempting to diagnose your unit without being there and with very little information.
From my experience, I would think you have a bad belt. They get stretched over time and start squealing in the spin cycle. If you don't change it, it will make a noise in every cycle until it comes off.
NOTE.
When changing belt. Check and be sure the pulleys have no play on their shafts. They also go bad. It's better to fix it all now than one to have to repair four or five times this year. Good luck!

I'm getting a squealing noise on the spin cycle (sounds like a bad bearing). Everything else works fine


yes, your bearings will need replacing if it is on every spin cycle the machine completes

Squealing while in spin cycle


normally, slow then build up of speed is a sign of the motor brushes wearing. this may cause squealing under load. the pump pulley may be hard to turn due to hard water calcifying or a build up of dirt... you may want to check the pump out before it becomes another problem. also,are the bearings in the drum dry? the belt also does not need to look as though it is about gone before it needs replacing... it could be that the belt is slipping whilst under a faster loading... try some belt grip spray to see if this cures the noise.if it does,then you are certain you need to replace the belt(s)

Loud squeal during wash and spin cycles, maytag atlantis washer


Squealing normal occurs due to belt slippage. I would check your belts (look for cracks. Check the belt tension as well, most washers have an adjustment, normally on the motor that allows you to increase the tension of the belt.

If part of a belt gets torn and it is long enough, it will hit any part of the washing machine within range and make a clicking noise at every revolution of the motor.

I am pretty sure you need new belts. You should be able to remove a few screws and open the back cover. Between the pulleys there is a tensioner...loosen that so you can remove the belt easily. replace it with a new belt and adjust the tension.

hope this helps
