Washer only makes loud chirping noise on fast spin, wife also said it smoked when spinning at high speed when making noted noise. Rear bearing?
ANSWER Hello Al,
It sounds like the belt was slipping causing the chirping and smoke. Be careful not to overload the unit as this is the most common reason for this complaint. Also if the rear bearings were bad it would be more of a grinding noise.
