My Whirlpool ed5fhgxkq00 refrigerator makes bubbling sounds. At night you can hear it across the room. Everything else seems to work nominally.

The noise you hear is the freon evaporator in the tubing. This is normal, it may be happening at other times as well, but you can not hear it due to the normal noise from people and ambient noises of the day. At night it is all quiet so you can hear it. It is nothing to be alarmed about.

Does this unit have an icemaker? They are known to be pretty noisy at times. To see if it is, make note of the time intervals between noises. If it's on a "schedule" then it's the icemaker.

Load knocking noise

these high efficiency compressors make noise when they are in will sometimes hear water running, or tapping noise or even a popping noise. if it happens when its off in defrost.. it will only happen three or four times per day as this is the defrost frequency and nothing can be done without securing the heat exchanger to the suction line ..sometimes these come loose...

Loud noise

Check the relay on the side of the compressor. Has a metal clip holding it to the compressor. Check with a volt meter and also check the compressor for voltage. no voltage or low at the compressor replace the relay. You can also take the relay off and shake it. If it makes a rattling sound replace it

Whirlpool S/S Ref with Ice in Door - Mod # ED5FHEXMQ

Most fridges run a defrost cycle 2 or 3 times a day. When this is happening a normal pop and sizzle sound will be heard. Otherwise I will need more information. Ice makers need to be cold enough to dispense ice, but not to fill. If yours will not fill, it may be the water filter.
