My fairly new machine SAWB600JQ1 just started screaming when spinning. I followed the directions given to me by the appliance guy on sister website but it wasn't the drive coupler.  I found it intact.  I think it has to do with the braking perhaps.  I've got the machine partly apart in my kitchen waiting for an idea of what to do next.

When I spin the basket, it spins with difficulty and stops quickly. I think I've been rough on it and it has been slightly off level.

Any ideas?

If this is a top loader, assuming it is since you mentioned the coupler, this could be partly the clutch/break assy.  You need to be able to run this with the lid open in the spin position.   Activte the lid switch with a pencil or something.  Reach in and hold the spin basket and then turn the washer on in spin.  Hold this basket for 1-2 minutes then release it and let it reach full speed then stop the washer by turning the timer off or releasing the lid switch.  See if the hard breaking/noise is better.  Keep doing this untill it comes to a smooth stop and the noise is gone at the stop.  Not sure this will cure the noise in the spin starting up problem or not, but start here.   the clutch gets rust on the pads and this burnishes the break pads, removing this rust that makes it grab.

Well, after tearing the machine apart...twice, I could try your suggestion of starting and stopping it so that the brakes get burnished. 

It worked!  I also leveled the machine perfectly and it works great.

thanks, Master Pegi!
