    I thought the model is HLM617W

    The noise does stop as soon as set is turned off. Also, no lights are blinking on front of set to indicate any lamp problem. I have replaced the lamp a year ago.

    If your refering to the bottom left as viewed from the front of the set it can be the cooling fan for the lamp. Is the whinning constant ? Does it continue after shutting unit off ? If so that would be indicating the fan as the cooling fan will continue to run after the set is shut down. If it stops whinning at shut down that would lead me to suspect the color wheel being in the early stages of bearing failure.

    Its the color wheel if it stops. Thats located right in front of the lamp after the small glass panel. Its under the ribbed section.

Rattles on high speed and soft click click sound on low how do you get to the fan

Assuming you're talking about the HVAC blower motor, it is located behind the glovebox. There is a plastic access panel under the passenger side dash area, take this off and also open glovebox and release tab in left corner. This will allow you to see the motor. See picture below.
