The water fill is timed so the gurgle is from the lack of water. if there is water going to the machine more than likely the valve is stuck shut or the panel is not sending voltage to the valve. depending on your knowlege you could take of the kick plate and test the voltage at the valve when you first turn on the machine

Freezer gurgles

      Check the water valve on the back of the refrigerator if it has an ice maker. Make sure the valve is turned completely on and not constricting the flow of water to the refrigerator via the water supply line. You might also hear a simultaneous buzzing sound when the gurgling noise occurs. In some refrigerator models, this filling process is on a timer, and you might hear the buzzing and/or gurgling every 15 minutes or so.

    • Check the water supply line for leaks or damage. You might see a puddle of liquid on the floor. If air is pulled into the water line as the refrigerator is pulling in water, that can create a gurgling noise. Replace the damaged hose yourself, or contact an appliance repair technician for assistance

      • f he refrigerator to feel a slight vibration. This is probably the compressor processing the refrigerant, which is a liquid. This flow of refrigerant can produce a gurgling sound, and it is normal. However, a simple way to reduce this noise is to make fewer trips to the fridge. When you open the door, you let hot air in, which means the compressor has to work harder (and gurgle the refrigerant more) to cool things back down.

    • Wait while the refrigerator completes its defrosting cycle if you hear water dripping and gurgling in the freezer area. When the heating coil turns on, the melted water from the frost flows down to a drain pan for evaporation to take place. The defrost process usually takes about 30 minutes. This is automatic and cannot be prevented in most refrigerators. Keep the closed to try to prevent unnecessary frost buildup.

    • Wait while the water equalizes in the refrigerator if you hear a gurgling sound when shutting the door. This is normal and is a result of air being forced through the drain tube. The gurgling can last several seconds but should eventually dissipate this usually happens with old fridges upgrade its a good investment

Does the drying occur? If the heaters are not working it may need the temp to be high this may stop it moving to the next part of the program ?

My coffer pot gurgles and it takes 20 min to make a pot of coffee!

I had the same problem with a regular coffee pot. The problem was a large piece of coffee ground that was lodged in the water tube check-valve going to the element. This prevented water from getting to the element quickly enough, and what water did get there mostly turned to steam. We had to remove/replace the tube.

How to bleed a subaru outback cooling system

Sounds like the thermostat is NOT functioning, since when its removed you can (apparently) fill the system. So ... replace the thermostat.

Bleed the system as follows:

1. Fill the radiator. Put on the cap, then squeeze the top hose 6 times. You'll likely hear some coolant gurgling.

2. Remove the cap, top up again.

3. Start the engine and let it idle. In about 5 minutes or less, the thermostat will open and the coolant level will lower. Turn off the engine. Go to Step #1.

4. You likely need to do this 2 or 3 times, till the gurgling stops, and you are done.
