My Series 90 Kenmore washer, purchased new in 2004, just started making a high-pitched noise when spinning. The faster the spin, the higher the pitch. The cycle completed but I'm concerned about using the washer again.
I'm afraid that is not enough information to identify the appliance in question. What is needed is its exact model number. If you post it we can look it up to see what appliance design you're dealing with.

** making a high-pitched noise when spinning. **
It could be something caught between the tubs rubbing or possibly the clutch or brake mechanism. It would need to be looked into to try to pinpoint the source of the sound then go on from there to investigate possibilities.

Use in such a condition could cause further damage. It should be avoided until it can be looked into.
