Wheel may be a little loose. Tightening just makes it louder though

Should probably just clarify my questions. I have no previous experience with trainers and don't what is typical across different models, although I have used rollers a few times.

Is there a trainer that would allow me to pedal (imperfectly, or not) silently?

Are there trainers that provide a decent amount of resistance (maybe in the range of 300-400 watts)?

Are there any that do both?
