My washer did the same thing. I put some belt dressing on the belt (the belt is on the very bottom, no disassembly rquired). The belt dressing I picked up at the local auto parts, and this seemed to help.

Bosch 500 next ers washer has a bad grinding noise when spining it's getting very loud

Clothes load may be out of balance, try to rebalance load, may take multiple tries. My bet, it doesn't make this noise if just water in the tub and spin out. However, if it makes this noise with just water in the tub, you may need serviceman to look at it. How old is the machine? Service may cost more than a lightly used replacement.

When the washer displays uL when spinning?

'Unbalanced Load' occurs when the machine detects that one side of the tub is heavier than the other.
This most often happens when heavy and/or large items become pushed to one side of the tub during the wash and become much heavier when the spin cycle engages.
This is more often seen in 'tub' style machines rather than front loaders.
Usually the machine has a safety system which shuts down the spin cycle and 'buzzes' to alert you to reach in and move things around in order to rebalance the load.

THE MACHINE RUNS VERY WELL QUIET UNTIL THE FINAL SPIN CYCLE THEN FROM THE BACK OF THE MACHINE THERE IS A SQUEAL THAT GETS LOADER AS THE SPEED PICKS UP

This may well be the drum drive belt in the back of the washing machine. This belt transfers drive from the motor to the drum for both wash cycles and spinning. If the belt is slipping slightly on the pulley then a squeal may well be heard on the spin cycle and will change in pitch as the speed of the drum increases. At lower speeds (wash cycles) the belt probably won't slip. I don't personally know of this model but there is usually a tension adjustment nut/bolt near the motor to tighten the belt and stop it slipping.

Squeals during the washers spinning cycle

What model is it? The answer is probably both. Every machine I've worked on has a motor with a belt that drives a pulley that turns the tub held in place by bearings. Your squeal could certainly be caused by a bad belt. If the belt looks bad change it. If it looks okay, try a squirt of belt dressing, if the squeal disappears change the belt. If it is a front loader open the loading door, put one hand just inside the tub at the top (like a waiter carring a tray shoulder high with one hand) and LIGHTLY push upwards then drop your hand a little then push upwards etc., etc. If the whole tub moves solidly you are okay, but if you feel a wiggle or a slight space in the jump (man this is harder to explain than i thought it would be) then your bearings may need attention. I doubt it is your bearings causing the squeal though. Does it squeal through entire spin cycle, or just at the beginning?

1982 Maytag Washer model LA210, drive belt squeal after spin.

That is usually normal. That is the sound of the brake applying against the tub to stop it. Smaller loads will be longer because the tub is moving faster and it takes longer to slow down.

Not spining out good. Looks like its spining slow

Make certain that the spin speed is where you want it (e.g.: high spin). Also, make certain that you aren't overloading the washer. A heavier load will slow down the spin.

You may have a worn drive belt (loss its tension on the pulley). Contact an appliance service company.

Maytag Performa, Noisey spin cycle, now does not work

the belt may be old and stretched/slipping...if it is stretched and slipping it will cause the squealing .............otherwise, check the pulley for the belt/motor to see if it is okay and the motor itself copuld be worn out if the belt looks ok............be careful, you can get zapped if you touch a wire and also if the motor is burned up it can cause a fire so watch carefully and you should be able to see which of these possibilities are the problem..............

Spining makes noise and machine vibrates a lot

its a simple solution just remove the brown colour clamp at the bottom of the machine with a screw driver

Keep spinning

sounds as if hte tub block has gone bad. its the locking block that ties the inner tub t the transmission shaft, after it strips out nothing stops free rotation of inner basket.
