Anyway, if your dryer Frigidaire-built GE dryer is making a squeeling noise in back, you probably need to replace the rear bearing kit.

Whirlpool LA9500XTWO direct-drive washer agitates fine for a bit and then goes clickety-click [video]
And Master Nickfixit nails it:
recheck the motor harness connections, make sure the harness is fully seated. Some machines had an extra 2 wire harness connection that can work loose, these were 3 speed motors.

Update time - I purchased the IM fix kit ( http://www.repaircli...05 ) which replaces the PVC fill tube with an aluminum extension. It turns out this model (or at least our refrigerator) has a heater that goes around the tube. Apparently the PVC is non-conductive enough that the heater doesn't really work well. Also, I noticed the PVC would hold a drop of water in the tube with each fill (like how a bead of water sits on your hood after a wax job) - the aluminum tube allows the water to completely drain, and the heater can do its job.
Anyway - it works now. No more freezing up. Its been a week and no issues.
On a side note - the water dispenser nozzle decided to get brittle and shatter. I read all about how the tubing has to be fished through the door hinge and spliced under the fridge. Well, it turns out on this model the coupling is behind the dispenser insert. A couple of screws, dispenser pulls out, and a compression fitting is revealed. Took about ten minutes to get the new one in. Now we're ready for the next appliance that wants a little attention.
