    Our side by side (GE) howls as well and apparantly is coming from the freezer. It's very annoying and it sounds like you're in Alaska during a windstorm or snow storm.

    My ge side by side howls alot every now and then and it comes from the freezer by the ice maker.

    Refrigertor started howling just as the warranty expired. Freezer freezes up after about 4 days. Freezer and refrigerator are set on 5 not really high for this to happen every 4 days. As the howling gets louder I turn the refrigerator off and let the refrigerator thaw for 2 days remove the panel from back of freezer side to make sure all ice has meltd.

    My GE side by side is also making an intermittent howling noise. The ice maker works but it will only dispense crushed ice and not whole ice cubes even when it is on the cubed ice setting. Are these somehow connected? Also, is it worth getting an actual GE service guy come out ($85 just to show up) or should I call a local (grand prairie, tx) appliance repair company?

    the fan mtr will need to be replaced ...The banging is Water Hammering you will need to turn down your pressure or install a bellows tank on you lines

    Also water flow slows way down when making the noise.

GE Model GSH25JSRF SS is clicking non stop, the click comes from a small panel on the back right of the fridge. Started out that the water and ice dispenser didn't dispense. Then the clicking just came...

Is it still cooling? I had an issue where there was a clicking noise from the back panel and the fridge did not cool. Pulling off the panel the noise seemed to from a box on the circuit board. Turns out there was a problem with the controler board and after some research I found that the board was covered under a recall. GE ended up sending a guy out to replace the board at no charge. Pretty cool being that if was after the warranty had expired; but I guess it makes sence since there was a recall. Good luck.

GE Model PSC23SGRC SS Serial #RH418861. Refrigerator make a howling noise Dave

I suggest a defrost with doors open over night, what often happens with this model is that you get an ice build up near the fan which causes an extremly loud noise, very common problem.

Our new LG dishwasher makes loud clunking noise

I believe this is a brand new dishwasher. Please listen carefully to determine of the sound you hear (clunk) is being made inside the dishwasher or is it being made near by. Most times, the problem is that the hot water pipe is baking the noise when the dishwasher closes the water inlet valve ... and the pipe goes "clunk"
I have not had an LG dishwasher make a clunking sound inside itself when the cycle changes. Also, because this dishwasher is so very quiet (well insulated) the pipe banging would be louder than something inside the Dishwasher.
If you have access to the hot water pipe, listen very near it when the cycle changes for the sound. Follow that pipe (hot water) pipe back and insulate it at the point it is banging. (or get a plumber to evaluate and resolve.)
Please get back to me with what you find, OK?
Good Luck!

Loud clanking noise in dishwasher

Most likely the motor as food caught in the sump would not make a noise you described.

Howling noise

I don't see anything located directly behind the icemaker on this model. Try to better isolate the location of noise if you can. If the icemaker is at fault, I wouldn't bother trying to repair. Order another one. One other thing to check is the water flow. When the noise happens again, stick your finger in the ice mold and feel for water. If it just filled, then problem may be in the water valve. Hope this helps,

Fridge makes howling noise

Hi there!

Check at the back for any objects or packets that are in contact with a fan. This often causes unusual noises.

See if you can identify the source of the noise, ao I can help further.
