Question about Whirlpool GD5SHAX Side by Side Refrigerator
Knocking occurs ocassionally
Mine does it too. I know what it is because I repair them for a living. That is the sound of ice expanding as the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost on the evaporator. The next ime you hear it make a note of the time. Every 8 to 10 hours it will go into defrost mode. The ice box will also quit working for 21 minutes.

The compressor is normally mounted in sound-dampening rubber shock mounts and it sounds as if one or more of these have decayed on your fridge.
Accessing the compressor from the back, you might try (gently) to rock the compressor to see if you can duplicate the noise you are hearing.
