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

During spin cycle it makes a high pitch whining sound and sounds like a button is loose in the tub

does it have a burning smell? is it belt driven? rather than direct drive. belt are known to emit a whinning pitch sound at times. could be bearings going out. and sometimes a pc of metal opr material can get stuck between hub and shell and make weird sounds?

I have an ASKO T700 dryer. When I turn it on, it makes a high pitched squeak. If it's on for longer than a minute, I can smell a burning smell. Any suggestions?

you got a roller or belt idler not turning and burning the drum belt. you have to take the dryer apart and find the problem. if you need to lubricate a roller or idler use mineral oil or roller oil, do not use wd-40 or 3 in one.

Burning smell + Screeching sound but Belt is not the cause, then WHAT is?

A lot of people may be searching for help with horrible sounds and burned belts for Maytag and Admiral washers only a few years old from Home Depot etc. They used a cheap pump that has a corrugated sheetmetal ring that holds the bearings. Well as it runs the vibration and friction cause it to slip down and grind on the pulley as well as not turn easily. If you put the washer on it's back and turn the small pulley and it turns with a gritty feel or you can actually see a loose metal collar type ring thing that looks like a cookie cutte; then you have a bad pump.

There is a small access panel on the back of the washer. Three screws and two spring clips on the hoses and you're done (use big pliers on the hoses). Put the belt back on (just push motor to one side, it's not tight), then check for leaks and reinstall the cover. VOILA! You can find the pump on ebay for $25 or your local GE parts dealers for $50.
