Toilet stools whistle after flushing

This could be caused by the sound of water jetting into the water tank. Just open the tap to the water tank slightly more until the whistling stops. The flusher valve in the tank may be leaking, causing the water jet to open again and the whistling noise.

The fill tubing may be kinked or installed incorrectly. The fill valve itself may be the source of the whistle due to water pressure.

Toilet whistles when flushed

That's probably because it doesn't know the words. Just kidding.
Whistling sounds usually indicate some type of restriction in the water supply. It may be the stop valve is not open all the way. Dirt or scale in the fill valve or lime buildup can also cause a whistling noise. check for these issues. and clean or replace parts as necessary.
Hope this helps.

Handle is sticking in one toilet the other toilet makes a loud whisteling noise after flusing

The handle is probably worn out on the first toilet. The whistling on the other toilet is probably from a restriction in the fill valve, if you can live with whistling, it's not really a problem. If not, I recommend trying a different type of valve.

When the toilet is flushed there is a whistling sound straight after until the cistern fills up again

The fill valve has dirt in it and the water is squeaking by literally...making the noise....
Either clean the fill valve if it is one that is cleanable or change the valve...

I like to use the Fluidmaster 400A valve it is cleanable and easy to install...

My Kohler toilet is about 5 years old and is making this awful whistling sound after being flushed. What part needs to be replaced so I can make it quiet again!?

The valve that fills the toilet is making that sound... it is filling up with dirt and the water is struggling to get through the smaller hole...

I have a toto toilet that doesn't start to refill until a couple of minutes after I flush. Any ideas. Thanks.

Several ideas. Start to fill? Have you looked inside the tank to see what's going on? If it just filling very slowly, then you most likely have some calcuim build up inside your flush valve blocking some flow, if this is the case you will have to clean the flush valve. If your flush valve is staying up and the toilet is "running" unitil the float drops. The float (either the arm ballcock style, or newer fluidmaster) is rubbing on either the flush lever or side of the tank, and taking longer to drop to let the water start flowing. I

I have a Jacuzzi Perfecta toilet (bought Aug. 21, 2008) at Lowe's. I have the sales ticket. The toilet works fine. The tank fills very slowly (2 minutes) before it shuts off. It also makes a whistling...

Have you tried shutting water off and take top of valve appart and flush it out. It may have something in valve causing water to be restricted. It will have an arrow on it to direction to get it to come off.

Take appart and clean rubber disc and you can put something over top of valve , a small cup or something to enable you to flush the tank. Have someone help you and hold the cup above the valve so that when you turn water on for a few bursts to flush out the valve it goes into tank.

The actual stream that flows through valve is restricted down to almost 1/8 " opening so it wouldn't take mush to block the flow of water.

The disc you take out you can replace it, if it seems to be damaged and not working correctly. That will affect the flow also.
