My frigidaire gallery washing machine was making a really loud squilling sound with its spin cycle. I need to know if its a belt that broke? There was a burning rubber smell and all the water leaked out on the floor. The clothes that were in the washer were rung out enough to dry, but afraid to try another load. The high pitch sound did get louder too.
The loud squealing on the spin cycle and leaking would not be caused by a broken belt. You will want to check to see if the leaking is coming from the center part of tub above the transmission. In most cases the squealing is the bearings that have gone bad which would require them to be replaced.
