Question about Whirlpool Gold Black-on-Black 25.4 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator w / Accu-Chill Temperature Control System GD5SHGXLB

1 Answer

Our Whirlpool side by side also makes a thumping sound. I have had repair people at the house 5 times with only one finding a possible solution and that solution was to reposition a dryer by the fill valve that was replaced just before the noise started. Could the dryer be bad and need to be replace? Both the freeze and refrigerator work fine.

When we turn heat or air on it makes a thumping sound in the back of the suv?


If you have rear heating in your SUV, the sound may be the gate valve(s) switching positions, if it does have a gate valve, there may be some thing jamming it up. if you have kids/ or a lot of tools or stuff that you carry in the back, it is possible that something got inside the housing for the unit (may also be jamming the fan for it as well).
is the "thump" continuous or does it just happen when you first turn it on? look under the rear seat (usually on the passenger side) for anything that may be up against the unit (also look to see if the units' housing is crushed)

Machine makes a thumping noise when spinning


If its thumping you have the maching overloaded and the clothes (very easy to do with heavy jeans or sweaters) are all on one side causing an out of balance situation. Try relocating some of the clothes to the other side of the unit and if that doesn't seem to help remove some of the clothes to eas the load on the machine otherwise it will never reach maximum spin speeds needed to rinse your clothes.

FRIG. NOT GETTING COLD


Switch off the fridge immediately and allow the compressor to cool off. It is possible that the defrost element is not working, causing a build up of ice in the freezer side. But this should not cause the compressor to overload. The compressor thumping and then stopping can be caused by low voltage supply or a blockage in the refrigerant system

I can only assume by rollers you mean bearings were replaced. Unless your dad measured both the ID Fit of the bearing and the OD fit [ inside diameter and outside diameter of the shaft and housings] new bearings could be on the small side of their tolerance, [new bearings are made to be within a certain amount of "slop" if the new bearing was on the outside tolerance, and the shaft or housing was on the large side of the tolerance, the bearings are still allowing the drum to move, and thump.

OR if belt driven, the alignment of the belt is important, if one pulley is out, and the other in, one shaft will be pulling and the other pushing, again a thump.

Something in the bearing/pulley setup has not been discovered bad yet, it takes micrometers and some knowledge of bearing tolerances to resolve this kind of problem.

Think about it, what can thump in a dryer? The tumbler cage. It is most likely that the journal or housings are wore, second the motor may have a front or rear bearing/ housing the same thing, gone bad,

This machine is old enough I would expect to find a worn housing or shaft, either drum or motor,most likely drum, check the alignment of the belt also, but most likely the thump is not cost effective to repair, plus Dad's time which is invaluable.

Start searching the sale sheets, and reading consumer reports, time for a new energy easy dryer anyway.

Constant "thumping" sound when dryer is going


you can fix it by ordering a whirlpool roller kit but its no big deal the drum sits on rubber rollers when it just sits the rolers get flat spots on them like tires and makes the thumping sounds its just noisey but no big deal but they do make a kit with softer rollers

Subwoofer "thumping" w. no audio feed


You need to check your ground connection. If there is a bad ground there will be feedback to the amp and it will just sit there and loop back with the Thump, Thump, Thump sound. I had to wire my amp's ground all the way back to the negative battery terminal. It was a pain but I have never had a problem since :)
