This is normal.. It is keeping your computer cool when it gets too hot.

    Did you figure out that is was just the fan spinning when the computer got hot?
    You need to make sure that you never put the laptop on a flat surface. The laptop can not breath on a flat surface. It needs to stay propped up on a laptop stand with a fan blowing on it. They sell these at almost any computer store and even at Walmart.

My Kenmore stackable washer makes very load noises in the rinse and spin cycle but still works. Anyone have idea why it's making so much noise


Try spinning the drum by hand when empty, the faster the better. Does it sound noisy or is there a grinding sound? It should sound silent or whir as everything turns. If noisy then it may well be the drum bearings. If it clunks then it may be one of the arms that holds the drum in place has broken.

Low pitch whirring sound coming from front end when above 30 mph


It could be that you have a front wheel bearing that is getting noisy. Have someone ride in the RF seat and listen to the noise to try to figure out which front wheel the noise is coming from.
Also , check the tread pattern of the front tires to see if it has some unusual choppy pattern forming.

Gateway laptop - whirring, buzzing sound


if it's a continuous whirring sound it is most likely the cooling fan. this is normal. as the computer gets older this will get noticably louder as the fan has to run faster to prevent overheating.

Cd rom makes whirring noise no cd inside


Although this isn't harmful, the only point at which you can control whether the drive is searched or not is likely to be at boot time. If you enter your BIOS setup (check your manual for the right key to press during boot), you will find a section where you can determine where the BIOS should look to find the boot sector it needs after its own Power On Self Test (POST) is finished. If you let the system look for a boot sector on its own, it may look at (if you have one) the empty floppy drive, the empty CD or DVD drive and then finally the C: partition of the hard drive. To avoid this blind seeking, you can set the 1st boot drive to C: and the other selections also to C:. Keep in mind though, if you bring up any Explorer screen or do a search, a save and several other functions, the system (which we all know is often clumsy and thoughtless) may just fumble around and pre-check all drives on the off-chance that whatever you seek might be there. Some versions of Win have an option that might also reduce some of the fumbling during a Search request. Open Search (generally on the Start panel), click on Change Preferences, then select Indexing service. With this function, the system will go forth and catalog every file and folder it can find, add these to a list which is actively maintained with files and folders being added and deleted as they happen. In theory then, your CD drive shouldn't spin up unless a disc is in place.

Loud Whirring Noises


very possible that it is indeed something stuck in the chopper assemble, remove the lower wash arm, from ther youll remove 4-5 torx15- screws and then under there you find another torx 15 screw , after removng the screw you can pry up hte cover form the right side and reveal the chopper assembly, i would refrain form removing the chopper if at all possible, its kinda a pain in the rear to put back in, buit you can cean any junk out if ness.

If it is not overfilling, and then leaking, the whirring noise can be a defective water inlet valve, that stays stuck on open, see here : It's overfilling

If it is not overfilling, the two problems may be unrelated, and the noise can be froma foreign object inside the object trap.

See here about leaks and noise

It's noisy

It leaks
