    I changed 1 bad motor and the whistle lessened noticeably. Still going to check the other motors to find the other offending noise maker. But as is, it is much more acceptable (to me) now so it isn't as much of a priority right now.

    it sounds like you need a motor replacement. I would buy a new motor or send it in for repairs if you arent confident about replacing it yourself
