You could have a machine that has a siezed drain pump. this can be checked by removing the belt off of the bottom of the machine and spinning the drain pulley by hand. it should turn freely in both directions. if it does then the problem is in the main tub assembly. it could be a simple as a foreign object between the tubs or something more complex like a siezed transmission.

It drains very slowly and it makes a high pitch sound when it does spin...sometimes you hear something tapping or slapping, likesomething is stuck.

To me it sounds like you have something stuck in your pump. I would check that first. I had the high pitched sound during the spin cycle on my machine and it turned out to be the drum bearings. That part used to be covered by a 10 year warranty but not anymore. My machine was less than ten years old and it cost me around 300.00 to fix it. I have paid for my machine 3 times over in repairs. My next washer will NOT be HE and probably an old school Speed Queen

Hi, I have a frigidaire front load washer, model FTF2140ESO, that is making a high pitched screeching noise when it enters into the final spin cycle. The noise ramps up in volume as the drum spins faster....

Some times screws can work their way out near the drum and rub against the drum causing the squeak. You might have to take off the back of the washer and see if there is anything loose contacting the drum.

During clothes washer spin cyle makes a high pitch squeeling sound like letting air out of a balloon very slowly

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You need to check the motor drive and spin bearing. It may be the bearing. The drive motor controls the spinning, draining, and the agitation. Usually, when noise is associated with the spin cycle, it is either one. It is not an easy fix. Make sure to follow your manual. If not, you may want to call out a professional.

High pitched sound during spin cycle

That machine doesn't have a belt. It is more likely that you have a bearing going bad. You may also have a tub seal starting to go which then leaks water onto the bearing, damaging it.
