Sometimes the bearing gets dry. Take it out and try to put a small amout of household/3M oil on the shaft to see if it helps. Some have small holes that are for putting oil into to feed the bearings.. You may be able to do this without taking it out. Be very sparing with the oil to prevent getting too much in it.

There is a loud noise while going through final stages of wash. Sounds like pump motor whineing.


Hello

When an appliance such as a dishwasher starts making a new noise, you need to isolate the cause of the noise so that you know whether or not it is damaging the machine. Several things can cause a noisy dishwasher.

Motor

Dishwashers are driven by an internal motor that gets quite noisy when defective. The problem occurs when a seal breaks down and allows water to access the bearings in the motor, removing the grease needed for proper lubrication and creating a loud motor noise when the dishwasher runs. The seal or bearings need to be replaced in this situation quickly or more extensive damage to the motor may occur.

Inlet Valve

If the inlet valve on your dishwasher is broken or breaking, you will hear a distinctive thumping or clattering noise whenever a load is run. A thumping noise doesn't always indicate this problem, however, depending on when you hear it. If you hear a noise like this when the water is filling up the dishwasher at the start of the cycle, the noise likely points to an inlet valve problem.

Squealing

A high-pitched squealing noise is an indication that something is wrong with the fan. Fan bearings that are worn out indicate that the fan apparatus needs to be replaced. If the noise you're hearing is in fact coming from the fan, it will only occur when the dishwasher is drying the dishes. Dishwashers use a fan to generate and distribute heat to dry the dishes quickly.

Minor Concerns

Sometimes even a minor concern can cause a great deal of noise. The thing to watch for is whether or not the noise repeats itself on multiple loads. A loud noise on a single load that doesn't repeat could be caused by things like a loose utensil or small implement rattling around loose in the dishwasher. Also inspect the bottom of your dishwasher. Hardened bits of old food can become rock hard under the heat in the dishwasher and cause noise when the unit runs.

My LG ice maker fan is making a really loud noise right after the water stops going in


Hello, Self-defrosting refrigerators use a circulating fan to move air through the freezer and refrigerator compartment. This fan runs when ever the unit is cooling. The fan is located in the freezer, as follows:
  • If the freezer is on top, the fan is on the back wall,near the top or bottom, in the center of the freezer.
  • If the freezer is on the bottom, the fan is on the back wall, near the top of the freezer.
  • If the freezer is on the left, the fan is on the back wall, half way up or near the top.
Overtime the fan may become noisy, usually making a chirping or squealing sound, though it may make a loud groaning noise instead.
To find out if the fan is causing the noise,just open the freezer door and push in any fan/light switches, if the noise is louder when the door is open, the evaporator fan motor is the cause. You can lubricate or repair this motor. You must replace it.
There are three components on the outside back of the refrigerator that may become noisy: the compressor, the condenser fan motor(if self-defrosting), or the defrost timer (if self-defrosting).
Thanks

New model ET1CHEXYQ02 VERY NOISY, LIKE TO MAKE


Hello there
Please follow these steps first ok
It's noisy Noise can come from these areas: The inside of the freezer The outside back of the refrigerator The bottom of the refrigerator The inside of the freezer Self-defrosting refrigerators use a circulating fan to move the air through the freezer and refrigerator compartments. This fan runs whenever the unit is cooling. The fan is located in the freezer, as follows: If the freezer is on top, the fan is on the back wall, near the top or bottom, in the center of the freezer. If the freezer is on the bottom, the fan is on the back wall, near the top of the freezer. If the freezer is on the left, the fan is on the back wall, halfway up or near the top. Over time, the fan may become noisy--usually making a chirping or squealing sound, though it may make a loud groaning noise instead. To find out if the fan is causing the noise, just open the freezer door and push in any fan/light switches. If the noise is louder when the door is open, the evaporator fan motor is the cause. You can't lubricate or repair this motor. You must replace it. The outside back of the refrigerator There are three components on the outside back of the refrigerator that may become noisy: the compressor, the condenser fan motor (if self-defrosting), or the defrost timer (if self-defrosting). The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. You can see it on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. It is usually black and has black or copper-colored tubes and various colored wires attached to it. If the compressor is the device making noise, there is probably no repair that will reduce the noise. You will have to replace it--which can be quite costly. If the condenser fan is making noise, there may be a build-up of lint or other debris on the fan blade. The fan is located near the back of the machine, sometimes behind a thin panel. To clean it, first unplug the refrigerator, remove the thin panel, and use a soft bristle brush to clean it. If there is no lint build-up or debris on the blade, you will have to replace the motor. The defrost timer is often located at the bottom of the refrigerator it may make noise

The timer must be replaced to solve this problem.

The bottom of the refrigerator Noises detected at the bottom of the refrigerator almost always originate from the back of the refrigerator. However, sometimes the drain pan under the refrigerator will rattle. You may need to tape the pan in place to stop a rattle. Also see the “Outside back of the refrigerator.”

MY unit has become increasing noisy and the fan is the mane cause. The fan is now making different noises at differing levels high and low of loudness, and it often quits running all togetger. It is also...


It sounds like the bearings in the motor are worn out, especially as you said it quits running at times. You should be safe in just replacing the fan motor, but check the fan blade to make sure it isn't out of balance for any reason(dirty, missing a balance weight, or bent). Hope I was of assistence!
