Hi John, W/D here.
Most likely scenario: squealing was either a belt or a bearing. Failure to run is probably a broken belt. Gain access to the back of the drier, with the power disconnected. Open the back and check the belt. If broken, replace it, and then rotate the drier by hand, listening for additional squeals and squeaks. If no other issues are noted, replace the back cover, plug it back in and try it out.
Best regards, --W/D--

2006 Kia Spectra is making a high frequency whistling noise, but it only makes the noise when slowing down from 40mph to 35mph if i apply the breaks the noise stops and if i accelerate the noise stops any...


Is it a squeel or a hum / rumble? 1st run your hands around the tyres especially the inside. Check for hi and low spots on the tyres. If the tyre is hi low hi low hi low it makes a shocking sound. if it is a squeel noise have they checked your brakes cause brakes have squeelers to let you know they need changeing

Amana Dryer LEA30AW


usually the humming sound is coming from the motor,try this,open the door,turn the drum with one hand and hold the door switch in with your other hand and have someone else push the start button at the same time,this might help the motor turn on but if it does you need a new motor,if you can't turn the drum you could have something stuck in the blower wheel or something jammed in the motor like a broken belt but like i said a humming sound is usually the motor.

My Amana dryer model number LE7153WM does not heating


The thermal fuse and the heating element would be the likely suspects. Both can be checked with an ohm meter. If there is no continuity, it indicates a defective component. Neither is repairable and if either component is bad, it will have to be replaced. Hope this helped. Good luck.

Zenith C27V22 27" TV loud humming noise


There is a coil in the set with a magnet glued to it, called the horizontal linearity coil. Sometimes the coil "sings", making a squeeling sound. I have seen this many times, and there really isnt anything actually electrically wrong with the set. To stop the squeeling the coil should be replaced.
