KNOCKING NOISE WHIRLPOOL GD5RHAXNB00


ME TOO !!!!! THE COMPRESSOR RUBBER MOUNTING BUSHINGS ARE LIKELY WORN OR LOOSE. THE HARMONICS OF GAS PRESSURE "HAMMERING" ARE CAUSING IT TO SHAKE.
THIS IS WHAT I DID: UNPLUG THE FRIGE, AND REMOVED THE CARDBOARD PANEL ON BACK. THE COMPRESSOR IS A GALLON SIZED BLACK GLOBE SHAPED UNIT. IT HAS 4 RUBBER MOUNTING BUSHINGS/FEET. SHIFT OR WIGGLE THE COMPRESSOR AROUND SOME AND THEN TIGHTEN BUSHINGS WITH 7/16" (11 MM) WRENCH UNTIL IT GETS TIGHTER. YOU MIGHT NEED TO REPEAT UNTIL YOU FIND A QUIET/SWEET SPOT . WHILE YOU ARE DOWN THERE, ALSO REMOVE THE FRONT COVER AND CLEAN THE DUST OFF OF THE COILS WITH A VACUUM. WATCH OUT FOR SHARP METAL EDGES AND HOT COILS WHILE WORKING. .... DOUG

If the shock absorbers under the compressor are damaged or loose there can be a lot of different noises but I have never heard it referred to as a motor racing.

A motor racing sound would be more like a fan motor going berserk and not keeping a constant speed. Since the compressor fan is located in the area of the sound you might want to take a look at it and see if it is keeping a constant speed.

Knocking noise coming from bottom of refrigerator


check the compressor for operation adn check the fan in the back of unit to make sure it is running...whirlpool units are notorious for compressor relay failure normally they click in and out every few minutes... if it is a knocking noise and continuous make sure compressor is not trying to start and sitting there shaking... normally it will stop after a few minutes and then start again....

Very loud noise whirling sound


Can you tell me where the sound is coming from? Like inside freezer or under refrigerator. Most sounds like you describe come from a fan motor and the fan blades are hitting something. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Knocking noise coming from Whirlpool Gold refrigerator


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.
