Noisy Water Fill

The washer makes a very high pitched squeal when the "waterfall" begins flowing. That noise occurs whenever the flow chokes back, so it would appear to be a control valve. Can you confirm the problem and how to fix it?

Changed the cold water valve and found it was the pump. Open up you washer (2 screws in back top) and you should find a diagnostic guide. Found a bad valve and pump. Bought the vlave $30 dollars and cleaned pump. 40 minutes.

My Whirlpool Duet washer is making a loud squealing noise when filling with cold water, and/or the water is reduced to barely a trickle. It does not make the noise/reduce cold water flow every time.


Hi.
Try to remove the sand filter(s) from the inlet hose. Both on the valve and on the water crane(tap) end. Common problem.
Usually this is the problem, but not always.

Noisy toilet


The sound is from the high water pressure squeezing thru the valve in the tank. The pressure can be reduced by partly closing the valve under the toilet tank. OR putting a washer with a small hole in the middle inside the fitting at the bottom of the tank to reduce the flow rate.

Washing maching flashes F H on time display


Hi


The FH code indicates a fill failure. The problem can be with the fill valves, flow meter or the pressure switch. This error occurs if the control doesn't see the flow meter turning. This usually a fault of the flow meter but be sure both the hot and cold water valves are working. Try a hot water wash cycle and confirm that hot water is coming into the washer. Check both valves and if they are working the problem is most likely the flow meter.

Also the FH error means it's either you have a drain problem if there is water in it or if if there is now water in it, make sure that both water inlets are turned all the way up. check to make sure that you don't have any water leaks anywhere visible.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Water leak on back wall of my freezer and a hell of noise from my icemaker when on


Water leak and noise are due to wrong temp setting or malfunction of defrost cycking.Keep temp setting between 3 and 5 degree centigrade. Due to over frosting, the freezer fan fan hits over the ice and working to cool fridge compartment.And also check defrost timer, and heaterworking properly to defrost in time. And if your ice maker is making sound, due to:
  • You will hear a buzzing sound when the water valve opens to fill the water reservoir for each cycle.
  • Rattling noises may come from the flow of the refrigerant or water line. Items stored on top of the ice maker can also make noises.
  • The high-efficiency compressor may make a pulsating or high-pitched sound.
  • Water running over the evaporator plate may make a splashing sound.
  • Water running from the evaporator plate to the water reservoir may make a splashing sound.
  • As each cycle ends, you may hear a gurgling sound due to the refrigerant flowing in your ice maker.
  • You may hear air being forced over the condenser by the condenser fan.
  • During the harvest cycle, you may hear a "thud" when the ice sheet slides from the evaporator onto the cutter grid.
  • When you first start the ice maker, you may hear water running continuously. The ice maker is programmed to run a rinse cycle before it begins to make ice.

High pitched noise


This is a water pump about to blow, or a clogged filter or hose. The fact that you hear it immediately, and limited water level is involved, it's pretty much your bingo.
After turning off the water supply, unscrew the garden hose-like attachments for hot and cold water intake. There is sometimes a small filter right there where the water enters. If they're clogged, clean em.
Take the hoses and run them through an outside plug to make sure they aren't clogged with back flowed dirt from the filter and hard water.
If it still won't fill, you'll need to test the pump.
each machine is different, but if you follow the hoses from where your hoses enter the machine, you should be able to unscrew them at the other end.
Stick them in a deep bucket then turn on the machine and see what the pump does. Is the noise coming from it? (service or replace). Does water gush out of the pump into the bucket? (clean all hoses and filters, buy some machine grease and lube all the moving parts, including opening the water pump and giving it a generous amount of grease.
Put it all back and your squeal will one way or another be gone and you'll have plenty of water

LG makes a high pitched sound during water add cycle


Hello.
The high pitched sound is a definite sign that the water valve in use is failing. The squeal is from a restricted water flow through the valve because it is not opening all the way. You will need to choose cold or hot to narrow down which valve is bad and replace that one.
