    I have the same problem. I thought this was an air flow problem myself and so I pulled the front panel off of the cooling coils in the back of the freezer in an effort to change the air flow to see if it made any difference in the noise problem. It did not. So I now think it must be the motor assembly (bearing, or some other vibration/harmonic in the motor assembly?) My next step is to remove the motor assembly and test it outside the freezer to try to replicate the problem.

Sounds like water pump! If it was last changed 60k when timing belt done could need doing! If not timing belt tensioner! When timing belt is done it is good practice to replace water pump and belt tensioners at the same time!

Howling noise in HSS25GFP


I can only tell you of my experience when my freezer/Refrigerator made those similar sounds. I pulled it out from the wall and saw some dust accumilation so I took the bottom access panel off to the fan and compressor compartment. It had a lot of lint like dust accumilation so I cleaned it. I actually took my air compressor and blew it out.Made a little mess but nothing vacuum cleaner couldn't handle. Anyway it helped a heap. It's like any refrigerant device. The filter needs cleaning. Not sure it will help with your problem but it did mine.

Compressor will not stay on no matter the temp. setting. After running a couple of minutes the unit emits a scraping or buzzing noise and compressor goes off.


Sounds like you lost one of your fans if air is circulating in the room its the condenser fan. Thats what blows across the condenser coil to the outside. It may just be a capacitor thats what helps the fan get started but usually if the fan is popping capacitors there is something wrong with the fan but at the same time capacitors do just go bad. hope this helps let me know.

I have a Whirlpool gold conquest side by side model GS5SHAXNL00 that has a clicking noise coming from the rear. The freezer isn't keeping things frozen but the fridge side is nice and cold. I can hear the...


These models have two fans. One is located inside the unit. The fan inside blows air across the cooling coils. With the door open this fan is usually running other than defrost cycle. If this fan has stopped it will cause the compressor to overheat and the relay will cycle.

The second fan equally as important is located under a fiberboard cover accessible from the back of the unit at the bottom. This fan is usually noticeable by an air flow sound. Usually air flow is detectable out of the front grill. If this fan fails to operate, blocked due to a major build up of lint the compressor will overheat and cycle as you hear,

Hope this helps?

I need to know if you have any type of air suspension. If you have a air compressed shock system then I would say the whoo whoo sound is coming from a leak or problem in the air pressure regulation system. That could cause the sides to move up and down and loose your grip also. Have your suspension checked and have your breaks checked also.

Noisy Compressor


either the compressor is under charged or it is near breakdown. compressor cost is almost the 1/3 of the freezer cost.

I have had some of these units making noises like this. One I found was leaking water down from the water inlet tube and in behind the ice maker and behind another panel that shoots up to the ice maker and building up behind that panel and causing a whistling sound. Removing the ice build up solved this one problem but couldn't find solution to the problem for the other. Dismissed it to change in the weather and expanding and contracting of the liner of the unit. Hope this helps.
