Hello!

I have a Inglis (Whirlpool) Model: ITW4871FW1, High Efficiency top load washing machine. During the fill cycle (when the washer is first turned on) it makes an ear piercing squeak as the agitator turns while it fills with water. It does this most times, but not every time the washer is used. For the remainder of the wash cycles, including the second fill cycle, it does not make this sound. I'm stumped as to what is causing it. I know it's not a water pressure issue because we live on a rural property and our water pressure is significantly less than city pressure.

I've included a link with a video to illustrate the noise: Video

Thanks for your help!

That is a odd noise that I have never heard before, and also I don't hear the water filling.

Can you please start the video when you first start it and let it record longer please till we hear the water filling as well?

Also DOES it does this on HOT ONLY? COLD ONLY? WARM ONLY?

I'm on well water and my pressure tank switch is set at 40/60 psi. What is yours set at?
