Re: fridge makes a fairly loud humming noise when I close...
It sounds like your refridgerator might be unlevel try adjusting the legs all the way down to start then level to floor if that doesnt fix it its probably the rubber gromet under the compressor usually there is four of them if one comes out(usually after moving it makes your compressor vibrate you can use almost any gromet of of any junk refrigerator or if you want you can by original replacement parts at one of your local appliance dealer

The problem is AIR In The Line. Either you have a leak in the water line or the filter was not tight. In some cases, people screw the filter in wrong, and cross-tread when screwing the filter back into the fridge. If the filter gasket failed to make a tight seal, air can enter and cause a noise. If the water l;ine has a small pin hole, when water is flowing within the tube, it too can make a noise. That can happen when drawing water down for drinking or when the ICE Maker is reloading the tray.
Unplug it and let it defrost. wile it is defrosting pull the botum front cover off and vacum out all of the acumulated lint off the tub on the bottum. after about 2 -3 hours plug it back in and listen for the fan running on the inside if you feel air coming out of the vents then you should be OK. If no fan replace it.
Sounds like your defroster is not working...bad defrost control or the heater for the defroster is burned out....also need to check to see that the circulation fan in the freezer compartment is blowing ok. You could do the old fashioned thing and remove all the food for a while, leave the doors open, blow with a fan inside the compartments to warm it all up and defrost any ice that may be under the evaporator coils...you can not see this ice as it is under sheet metal. Also check that the little pan at the bottom of the refrigerator is ok and that the hose to it is not stopped up preventing water from getting to the pan during the defrost cycle.
dear sir the problem you have sounds like the solenoid that opens the drain actuater can be worn out open the bottom panel run tru a cycle observe when the solenoid open it may be that there is something causing the solenoid to buzz either worn out or a wire or something in the way causing not to close proprly thanks from gilles
your model is pretty new. just so you know your warrenty is 1 year parts and labor. 2 years on parts. it should not cost that much money.
there are two components that start before the circulation pump.(wash noise you hear)
first sounds you hear will be the drain pump. usually rattling noises if something is in it but it can make a hum noise if something is jamming the drain propeller up. which is accessible with a T20 torx driver. take the filters out and the mesh filter. and unscrew the screw in the base towards the left. pull out whatever is lodged.
the other humming sound can come from the next component that activates is the watervalve. make sure you dont have a kinked water intake line. otherwise its a bad valve. i have had to change a few of those water valves out already but not for a hum noise on your model. you have a new style water valve. when brands make new parts we get problems fast sometimes..
sounds like the door is losing contact with the door switch, first thing i would check is the door strike.Metal strike plate located on the tub itself that the door latch catches as it closes. its a spring metal striker, i would try bending it down a little bit to ensure better contact with the switches inside the door itself . next id open the control panel and check to make sure your door switches are secured well, wires are tight.
