SOURCE: Loud Knocking
If the noise is not coming from the fan as Buffalo suggests, it is most likely the expansion and contraction of the heat exchanger. The old school way to lessen the noise of expansion is to bank the combustion chamber with a hammer. I don't recommend it today because the metal is so thin (thus all the noise) and you may damage it. You will get used to it and the noise may soften the more it is used. You will never get it to stop.

Well you may want to have a tech come out and check the freon level, but mostly when going into defrost, some units make alot of noise, the freon is reversed in the unit by way of the reversing valve, it makes a whooshing sound like freon is draining off, as far as the knocking noise, could be as I said in the beginning, might be low on freon, but it could be that, this particular unit does this, I have had units make some really strange noises in the past but functioned perfectly, hope this helped, please let us know, thanks again,

Hi JENNY, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Do not despair; there is a way to fix your KA mixer. From the symptoms you’re describing is sounds like your mixer’s (speed) Control Assembly and/or the Hall Effect Sensor has gone bad and either one or both parts need to be replaced.
As your mixer is out of warranty, the inspection and troubleshooting of the control assembly is something you can do yourself, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the correct Part List manual around when you start to disassemble your mixer.
If you're lacking one, you can download it from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides, and enter the 6 character model number, in this case, KN15E1X, and then select the first file, KN15E1XBW0.pdf (335.24 KB) that appears under Parts List (17). (check to see if this matches your mixer model).
Turn to pages 4 & 5 titled, "Case, Gearing and Planetary Assembly", which provides an exploded view for the assembly and disassembly of the mixer and locate Illus. Nos.8 & 9, Control Assembly and Hall Effect Sensor, respectively. I suspect one or both of these parts that are the cause of your mixer’s speed woes. Since the (speed) Control Assembly is the more complicated of the two, that’s where I’d focus my attention. The Hall Effect sensor is a very simple device and rarely goes bad.
First check to see if any of the connections have come loose from your Control Assembly. If everything looks tight then you need to replace it. Unfortunately the whole controller assembly is on a little PC board filled with resistors and capacitors, which was not meant to be 'home fixed' and my 'expertise' ends there. A local small appliance repair shop should be able to determine if the controller assembly is functioning properly or not. Or you can just order replacement parts without the testing.
As far as parts go, here are four potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com. Prices for the same part can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
Here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer. The mixers displayed in the links are different KA models, but the principles are the same.

I recently had the same problem. to let you know I replaced the filler and the flapper to NO avail. I tried flushing with the water OFF and it still did it thought it was in the siphon so I removed the water going in there and it still made the sound. This AM it got to me so I was determined to be rid of the WHINE It only happens when the TOP is on that is when it hit me is the seal so great that the vacuum creates the whine I put the little rubber door stops, the one you use in door jams, on the four side and tada no more sound Hope this helps
