Are you talking about a box air con in your window/wall ? . water dripping out of the unit is condensation from the water in the air. the water should go to a drain or outside. pipes making nose are from the compressor which is kinda normal unless its a really loud noise. use a rubber and cable ties to stop pipes from hitting metal on metal

I drove my mustang threw a half foot of water and it stalled and died when I restarted it it made this tapping knocking noise that u can feel tapping on the passenger side intake manifold

My guess is a bent rod caused by hydro locking a cylinder with water. I've seen it alot in mustangs and crown vics. Your water soaked air filter is a dead giveaway.

What is going on with my furnace? When the burner comes on there is a knocking sound coming from the boiler area which continues as long as the burner is firing and continues for 30 seconds after.

knocking in systems is from fluid hammer in the pipes
It can be controlled in the first instance by the proper mounting of the pipes in the saddles ( more saddles the better --- less chance for the pipe to hit the wall or brackets )
The "hammer" occurs when a valve is opened and fluid stats to flow then the valve is shut off rapidly . the fluid is still flowing and so it hits that valve and the pressure builds up in the pipe ( knock) the valve is again opened reducing the pressure in the pipe only to shut off quickly again making the pressure again build up ( knock)
The are devices called accumulators available fro good plumber suppliers shops , that have a gas filled bladder in the unit
When the valve shuts off quickly , the flow of the fluid is absorbed against the gas filled bladder and then released when then valve is again turned on
this smooths out the stop/start action of the fluid and so stops the hammer or knock
The noise should be treated seriously as it will loosen of fittings and joints causing leaks and if extreme , will split pipes
As an example of what I am talking about take your garden hose and fit a stop hand piece to the end of the hose . turn the tap on , you will see the hose move as the water pressure builds up in the hose
press the trigger and see the hose relax
stop the flow quickly and again see the hose react
That relaxing and reaction of the hose is water hammer or knocking but you won't hear it in a hose , but with rigid pipes the action comes out as a vibration , like a drum being hit

I hear a knocking noise behind the wall when I use the hot water. What could it be and how do I get rid of it?

I had something similar, but I would call the noise more like 'ticking'. The problem was that hot water would heat up the plumbing vent piping (plastic) for that bathroom and it would expand and then contract (after shutting hot water off). As the pipe 'grew' it would make noise sliding through the opening in the ceiling header. It seems that builders had stuffed loose fiberglass around the pipe there that served to let the pipe move freely. The fiberglass had fallen out and the pipe was rubbing against the wood and making noise. Stuffing new fiberglass in the opening around the pipe fixed it.

Knocking noise when turning cold water off or toilet flushing

It's called water hammer, either pipe was never secured correctly or
pipe has come unsecured. You can try to find where your cold water pipe is not secured correctly (every 4 feet or every other floor joist) or install water hammer arrester in cold water line.

Cold water pipe noise

is there a knocking when you use the faucet or the pressure slams when you turn it off? that's water hammer. the air pockets that are supposed to be in the plumbing are depleted. most new plumbing have a length of pipe larger than the rest of the plumbing to hold air to avoid it. easiest way to fix this: turn off the water main. open up every faucet and flush every toilet until no more water flows. shut everything off again. slowly turn on the water main and the knocking and water hammer should disappear.

Our auto irrigation system wouldn't turn off. We found the Davey XJ70 pressure pump was leaking so replaced the leaking pipe. Now the watering g system won't start. What do we do?

Hi Geralidine
Sounds like your pump is "air bound"...meaning that the impeller housing of the pump is full of air, and it cannot pump water.
Try bleeding the air out of the pump and put a positive pressure (garden hose pressure) and make sure that you shut the airbleed valve off after you start to pump.
Please take time to rate me

The water pipes have been freezing up for the past two nights, got them thawed out, and started a load of laundry set on cold. Washer started normal, it made a small click noise as allways, and the water...

Have you taken the hose off of the back of the washer and checked to see if you are getting water to that point. Also check the inlet screen on the fill valve to see if it is clean.. You may need to replace the fill valve. There may be a screen in the inlet of the hose at the shut off valves.....So check both ends of the washer hose..... I would check the hoses first before I would replace the fill valve....Hope this helps

That knocking noise is probably coming from your water line, and that happens when there is some kind of a ripple/wave effect when the water goes into your dishwasher (DW) thru the inlet/fill water valve. First turn your hot water valve off, underneath the sink coming from the wall and it usually is also going to your kitchen faucet. Then turn the electricity off by locating the breaker to the DW line and turning it off, or if it is plugged in an outlet under your sink, just unplug it. Then take the kick toe panel (panel with 2 or 4, 1/4" or philips screws) from the bottom of the dishwasher. You will then see the water hose, or could be a copper pipe, going into the valve (will have a selenoide, cylinder shape on top and have 2 wires plugged in to it). Unscrew the hose/pipe from the water valve and get a small wide bucket or pot and aim the hose/pipe to it. Slowly have someone open the water valve from under the sink while you hold it in the bucket/pot. If you hear the knocking again, you will need a plumber to check the pipes, hoses and water valve at your wall. If you don't here the knocking noise, just replace the dishwasher inlet/fill water valve part # 785330. Please post back.
