This is likely one of the fan motors. If it is coming from the lower back it would be the condenser fan and if it is coming from the frezzer compartment it is the evaporator fan. Both are inexpensive and easy to check and replace. Here are a couple links that should help

How do I fix a high pitch noise when spinning?


If your washing machine is making a high-pitched whine or squealing noise while running, the main culprit is usually worn motor bearings. To check the motor bearings, remove the belt and run the motor by itself, listening for the noise. If it makes the noise, than the problem is most likely the result of worn motor bearings.

My Microwave continues to run unless door is open. I do not think it is heating though when I shut the door. When I close the door and push buttons nothing happens. I get a high pitched sound when I...


The high pitch sound to me may be coming from the speaker on the main circuit board. Try to unplug for a few minutes, reset clock time and then try again. If same issue, may need new PC board. When you say Microwave continues to run are you meaning the Turntable is turning and the fan running?? Or is it just timing down. Almost never does it actually keep heating. On GE units I mostly find bad door switches will cause a back feed and make the tray turn and the cooling fan for the mag to run. To see if that is the problem You have to look at the door switches behind the front panel on the left side and see if any of them have any browned connections on the terminals where they push ontl the back of the switch. That will cause the fan and turntable toi run, but wouldnt cause a high pitch squeal. These companies use switches wtih small 3/16 terminals that dont give a good enough grab on the switch, they get loose and hot and make the switch go bad. I replace that switch with a switch with 1/4 inch terminals and runa short section of Hi temp wite to it and it wont go bad again. Just cheaply made!! Also I guess the squeal could come from the turntable motor area. So By fixing the switch problem it could fix your squeal. With nothing else running you may be able to hear motor and coupling noise you couldnt hear before.

Our water softener makes a high pitched squealing noise every 10 min. or so, and then quits for several hours only to start again during the night when we're trying to sleep. Our water softener repairman...


A softener will generally make a high pitch squeal when it is backwashing. This is generally the first cycle in most softeners. It may also do this during the final fast rinse cycle. The second brining cycle takes about an hour. That is why you may have a delay in the squeal. Also I have seen at times when a power surge can force the drive motor into a short backwash. Usually just a few minutes. It may help to put a surge surpressor at the water softener plug.

Squeeks loadly when running


The drum belt is slipping or a support wheel bearing is worn.  Spray some belt dressing on the belt or replace the belt.  Lubricate the wheel bearing or replace it.  It is also possible that the seal between the drum and the housing (at the back) is worn and the drum is rubbing metal-to-metal on the housing.

New High Pitch sound


If the sound is from the compressor, the unit is likely under warranty...generally 5 years.  If the unit is frozen up and the sound is from a fan that is hitting ice, defrost the unit completely.  Other fans in the unit could also be squealing.  You'll have to be a detective.
