Question about Washing Machines
Making different noises, during wash cycle it makes a low pitch moaning noise. during the spin cycle it sounds like a whining noise with different pitches. tonight it made a load click noise and stopped as if the motor experienced a over temp and tripped out. after a few minutes I was able to restart the washer.
The high pitched sound is a definite sign that the water valve in use is failing. The squeal is from a restricted water flow through the valve because it is not opening all the way. You will need to choose cold or hot to narrow down which valve is bad and replace that one.

I would take body of washer find out where noise coeing from.. got 2 screws in each side of head, flip head up and take clamps off .. pull whole body off washer run thu cycle and see if ya can locate the noise.. sometimes water pumps get something in them that well make weird noises.. but are in all cycles.

cold water screen in hose was half plugged causing it to either shut off the spin cylce due to lack of water or increase the spinning speed.
Hope this solves the problem.

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
