Just bought a 2 yr old Samsung TX-P3271H. There is a fairly loud 'boing' (or electronic thud noise) when the TV is first turned on that lasts only a second - then everything is fine. No such noise if the TV is turned off an on while warm. Is this normal or something to worry about?

Re: Samsung TX-P3271H Noise on cold start
That is not the boost up voltage, but what is called the degaussing coil circuit activating everytime the set is started up from a cold start or being shut off for awhile. this is perfactly normal my friend so dont worry about it as if it does not make that noise, you will most likely get color blotches on the face of the picture tube. Good Luck with your TV set.

How deep do you want to get into this?It sounds like the wash pump motor bearings that are worn.You can pull the unit out flip it over and wd40 the bearings in the motor or you can replace the bearings.Try to lube them first.
I used to have a whirlpool fridge, they are the ones who make kenmore too. It used to make a loud thud noise. It was the compressor turning off. sometimes it was loud enough to wake me up at night. It did this for years and I never had any problems with it. when I purchased a larger fridge I sold it to a friend and its still working today. If you can tolerate the noise I wouldn't worry about it unless it starts giving you trouble.
