What would cause the washer to sqeek or squeal when in the spin cycle?
Answer Hello Cyndi,
This sounds like you have debris in the drain pump. There could be an article of clothing between the tubs, but most of the time when the complaint is a squealing sound during spin, it's more likely that something is contacting the pump impeller as it spins.

Washer doesnt spin at the correct speed, it spins but about half normal speed. Clothes are not as dry as they used to be after thr spin cycle. What causes this?
Answer HiDale. Is the timer making a noise, it is part # 3954563. Lift the washer up and support it. Is there black dust and plastic under the center of the washer? If so the motor is part # 285753A. It goes in between the motor and the transmission. You can loosen the back bottom end cap (control panel) screws and lift up and flip the control backwards. Then unclasp the lid switch. Open the lid and place your hand at the 6:00 position and lift the cabinet up and off the frame. Then Unclasp the top tub ring. Then use a flashlight to inspect in between the inner and outer tub for any balled up clothes that is slowing down the tub spinning. If this is clear, you need to see if the there is a nail dragging from a inner wash basket hanging out of a hole and dragging on the outer tub (inner part of). If all this is clear, the clutch band assy. part # is 285790. Also the motor switch is part # 8529896. It may have a bad connection or a bad inner switch contacts. Thank You.
