Hi all,
I've recently changed or fixed:
Ecu - repaired due to rinses light flashing

Now after all this my washing machine has developed this squeal at low revs, at higher speed and very high speed everything is fine. I changed the belt last thing because of the squeal as I found it split along the ribs during inspection, thought replacing the belt would cure it and that maybe during my previous repairs had over tightened the belt. I've also tried removing all the tension but I cannot trace this squeal noise. Could the tension be incorrect or could it be motor bushes or something like that?

Thanks for looking and thanks in advance for any responses.

It may not apply to you but I have had a noisy motor bearing. My problem was the front bearing.

You can test by taking the belt off and running a spin cycle.
