The belt would probably squeak in the agitate direction also. I suspect a tub or clutch bearing is going out. If you find signs under the washer that it's been leaking, the tub bearing needs to be changed. It's a major disassembly job. The clutch bearing may be easier.
Is it a constant squeak or does it go squeak-squeak - squeak as it agitates? It is a squeak that is intermittant then usually your brake is losing its hold. You will need a technician to do this job. It requires special tools that they should have. I repeat a technician should do this job. You can seriously hurt yourself attempting this repair. Also see if the inner tup is turning as it agitates, if it is then it i definately the brake. But one more time do not try this repair it is a dangerous repair that should be left to technicians. There is a spring that is under heavy compression that requires a tool to release it.
Loks that your machine is pretty old and hence the belt has hardened making a squeaking noise.
Good fix is get a new drive belt.
Quick fix is you could put some oil on the drive belt..... it will work for now but not a permenant solution.
but hoping I could get a little help.I get a very loud squeak from what seems to be the back end of the bike under power. I don't notice it in first gear but 2nd and up I hear the squeak that is very loud. It is not a constant squeak but a jumpy one that seems to match the engine vibrations (as in it seems to squeak every time a cylinder fires) but only under power.I just put on new rubber on the back end last night and I left every guard off and it didn't change assuming that I have guards rubbing and squeaking but apparently not the case.Now what I find to be very interesting is that it is not always there. Case in point: Almost a month ago, I got caught in a pretty good rain storm. It didn't squeak again until I washed it. After I washed the bike, it never really went away until I ride for a while. Oh yeah, almost forgot to mention that the squeaking never really stays for a whole ride, just the start of it (10-20 minutes?)Is this a symptom of the wheel bearings going or do I have a problem with my belt drive? The bike is a 2003 XB9R and I know that there have been problems with the belt on some (not being strong enough) but from what I can tell, the belt looks imaculate for being 5 years old.Any ideas before I start throwing money at it until it gets figured out?,1. the belt will not squeak, so it's not that. 2. this is hard to figure out online.3. is it while riding constant or during normal/hard acceleration?,,,
looks like you need to replace the main DRIVE BELT , first open the panel to access inside the washer , give it a test wash and look at the bottom where the belt is , check if belt is tight , if you still hear the squeak try lubricate spray to the pulleys and avoid spaying the MAIN BELT . hope this info works
I bought a new GE Washer GTWN5050MWS yesterday. From the first load it squeaked each time the tub moved back and forth (no agitator in the infusion type) It is a quick squeak and kind of resembles a cat getting it's tail under a moving rocking chair. I checked the entire owners manual and it describes several noises and not one of them describes what my new washer is doing. It does not make this sound except for when it is in the wash cycle. Spinning is quiet, and during the agitation of the rinse cycle it is a much more subdued squeak. But during the wash cycle it is not acceptable.
I called GE this morning and they told me it was normal operation for all infuser types of their washer to make this noise. Tomorrow I will be taking it back for a full refund.
We purchased this machine because our 2-year old front loading GE washer broke down (discharge pump I think) and to get it fixed usually takes a couple of weeks. We thought it might be better to have a 2nd washing machine instead of paying the laundry mat. It took a month to get the last one declared unfixable in 2008. Maybe I was wrong. But this is very bad luck to have a brand new washing machine squeak so loud out of the box.
