    Our French Door Samsung is making a "knocking" noise several times throughout the day. We don't remember it making this noise previously.

Im sorry to tell you, but the sound is probobly normal.
fridges these days make some weird noises.
they started making noises when they changed the gas to R34a.
you may be able to get a noise ruduction kit for your model. they are not too fun to install

I had the same knocking noise problem but fixed it easily. Are you ready for this? All you have to do is lift the bar in the freezer that is attached to the ice maker. We don't have water connected to the ice maker so when the bar was down (which will trigger the ice making mechanism), the freezer was trying to bring in the water. I lifted the bar, and, magically, no more knocking!

I have a Maytag French Door Bottom Freezer / Refrigerator. Model MFI2568AEW. I changed the water filter today and 10 seconds after installing the new filter it started making a very loud noise like


Sounds like water hammer, has the water supply got it's own shut-off valve behind the fridge or in the basement ? Try shutting the valve then open it just a little. Perhaps the water supply was opened fully after installing the new filter.

My Maytag MFD2560HES bottom fridge is making a loud humming noise.


Any time there is the sound of humming it is important to locate where the noise is coming from. Sometimes fans wear to a point that at one speed the sound as if humming. Sometimes compressors hum with more catastrophic results. Because your model is a bottom freezer it would be a good idea to open drawer to freezer and see if the sound is from fan in freezer or if pulled away from wall is the sound the fan or compressor area? I believe I will be able to locate a service manual but I will need you to help me pinpoint the location of the loud sound so we can get the sounds back to normal. Let me know if you are able to try that and what you find, Sea Breeze

Call (800) 688-9900. This number will send you to the Whirlpool call center. They recently bought out Maytag. This is a common problem with a board in the back of the fridge. This happened to me over the weekend. I called this morning, and they are sending the part overnight, and the tech is scheduled for the day following. As for a temp solution to the flapping noise (which is very annoying) there are two solutions. 1. You can put a small towel through the opening to muffle the sound. 2. You can tape the opening open using box tape or duck tape.
