Keeping this in view, why does my washing machine make a high pitched noise?
If your washing machine is making a high-pitched whine or squealing noise while running, the main culprit is usually worn motor bearings. If it makes the noise, than the problem is most likely the result of worn motor bearings and has nothing to do with issues in the rest of the washer.
Also, why does my washer squeak when it stops? The squeal is normal on these machines and is the result of a very shiny brake stator. It's the same principle as running your wet fingertip around the rim of a wine glass, only louder. The factory method of fixing the problem is to remove the brake stator and sand the shine off of the inside of the stator.
Correspondingly, why does my washing machine squeak when spinning?
Like many appliances and machines that use a motor, a washer runs via a drive belt that attaches the motor to the rest of the mechanism and creates spin. A damaged or frayed belt, or one that is poorly adjusted, will cause squeaking and squealing throughout the spin cycle.
What does a washing machine sound like when the bearings have gone?
When the drum bearings have gone in a washing machine they make a rumbling sound. Many people are unsure if the noise their washing machine is making is really worn drum bearings or something else.
