Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
When I open the door, the noise eases, and gets louder when I close the door again. It's a Whirlpool over 10 years old
This is a problem with the defrost system get it sorted or you have a serious problem, first check the defrost sensor and then the defrost heater

The motor for the auger drive runs pretty slow (about 18 rpm), it could be the drive is running continuously (unless the door is open). Check that and let me know some more info, is the noise real loud, soft, etc. Can you feel anything vibrating or running when the door switch is pressed in?

sounds like your icemaker is jammed.
first ofall just feel around the icemaker and see if you can find a peice of ice jamming it that you can remove. if that doesnt work heat it up with a blow dryer until any ice that is there will melt away and it will free up..
there is one other possibility: the stripper could be jammed against the side of the icemaker in which case you'll have to remove the icemaker from the refrig and unjam it..
hope that helps and good luck

SOURCE: Ice in freezer compartment
ok you have a defrost problem.there are three parts to the defrost system the defrost heater which is wrapped around the evaporator cover the defrost thermostat which is mounted on one of the lines coming into the evaporator the third is the defrost timer which can be in several places most of the time in the refrigerator compartment cant tell you exactly where as i have no info on your model pull the bottom kickplate and see if there is a tech sheet there that may give you the location then look in the fridge compartment and see if you can locate it is your model a sxs or top mount

SOURCE: loud noise from the freezer side
The problem is a buildup of ice on the plastic housing (the curved plastic bit) in the back of the freezer under the fixed shelf where the icetub goes. The fan behind this plastic housing is hitting the ice when the defrost comes on.
Unplug the fridge, unpack the freezer, remove the four screws in the back, take off the sheetmetal backing and let the fridge thaw. You can remove the plastic piece after a while and get the ice off (be careful not to remove the styrofoam insulation by going too quickly).
Reassemble and you're back in business, for a few months. I'm never buying Samsung again myself.
