I have the Forester 3171 - same floor plan as your 3170.
Are the coach batteries fully charged?
If so, for the bunk/bedroom slide there are two Lippert motors synchronized at the ends. The slide control box for that slide is in the storage compartment outside - the one with the water filter. Look up and you will see the black box. It has diagnostic LED's inside the box. Use this video to help: Schwintek In-Wall Slide System (Trouble Shooting Tips) By Lippert Components. - YouTube
On the couch/kitchen slide, it is different. This one does have the manual crank-out as others have pointed out. The noise you mention could be the clutch meaning something might be binding. Might just try the manual operation.
