Question about Whirlpool ES5FHAXS Side by Side Refrigerator
A good guess is the fan in the freezer is coming in contact with something. Most likely ice buildup which indicates a failure in the defrost section. If the noise is coming from the freezer side, just behind the food this is almost a for sure thing. It may just be going out as well, which is good because then you wouldn't have a problem with the defrost section :)
If the noise is coming from the back of the refrigerator at the bottom, what we have there is a compressor and a fan that keeps the compressor cool (called a condenser fan). If it's the condenser fan, it probably just needs to be replaced, and or adjusted from whatever it is coming in contact with. If it's the compressor, lets hope it's just rattling and can be tightened down. If it is something inside the compressor you will have to live with the noise or replace the compressor. The sad part is, replacing a compressor is generally not cost effective, at which point you buy a new refrigerator.
These are really the only three things that can make that type of noise. I hope I was of some help. If i can clear anything else up or answer anymore questions please let me know! good luck!
