The compressor is self contained in a sealed enclosure. The noise means that the anchors inside the enclosure have broken. This does not affect the performance or life of the whole unit but it can be annoying. There is nothing you yourself can do about it and it would require the compressor assembly to be replaced. It would be better to get a new appliance.

SOURCE: compressor makes loud noise when it shuts off

If you know that the compressor is making the noise, I really believe you need to prepair to replace the the air conditioner. If under warranty it would be wise to contact the dealer for options.

SOURCE: loud noise at end of spin cycle

The most common cause of the symptom you are describing is a bad drive block which has probably ruined your basket drive as well. Let me give a quick explination. The weight of the basket you put your clothes in is supported entirely in the center of the washer underneath your agitator. It rests on an aluminum block called your drive block. So that the basket will move back and forth while the washer agitates, there are two tabs on the drive block that lock your basket drive underneath in place. Once the drive block wears out or round down these tabs, the basket will raise slightly and "skip" across the top when the spin cyle is stopped. To verify this, you can check one of two things. First (and easiest) is put a heavy, large load in the washer, get it wet then spin it out. Once the washer reaches the maximum spin speed, open the lid. The washer should snap to a halt when functioning properly. What I belive you'll find is that even with the lid open, the basket will continue to spin. The other method to verify this is take the top of the agitator off. Next remove the bolt in the middle of the agitator and lift the agitator off. In the middle, you should find a large flat metal colored nut.In the middle of that nut, you should see two tabs across from one another. There should be two straight pieces of metal coming up from the bottom which have nice, straight sharp corners. Again, if I am correct, you will find they have been rounded off and there may even be shavings of metal visable.
To replace a basket drive and drive block, you will need to purchase the parts and also a specialty tool from removal and instalation. These will probably run you around 125-175. If you are interested in giving it a go, reply back to me and I will get you some step-by-stpe instructions typed up.

SOURCE: Whirlpool top freezer refrigerator- compressor makes a loud noise

The compressor is that black casing you see at the bottom of your refrigerator - inside this sealed case is the motor assembly which stits on 3 or 4 springs that act like a cushion - you have a little gap at the bottom where the lubricating oil is present. Your springs have likely worn out and when the compressor shuts off the assembly is banging against the rigid casing make that loud "klonk" or bang noise. It IS normal for compressor to make some faint "tick-tick-tick...tick.....tick" when shutting off, but loud banging, bell sounds, etc, means the assembly is banging on the case from the inside - you can indeed live with the noise, your compressor will function normally, probably for months, or even years - it can also keep wearing out and one day the noise might get very loud (like a very high humming noise) - There is NOTHING that can be fixed, you either pay $400+ to change the compressor or buy a new refrigerator - If you DO replace a compressor usually the replacement will be noisier - Keep a thermostat inside your refrigerator at all time to make sure your compressor is still keeping your refrigerator and freezer cool.

Frig shutters and makes noise when the cooling cycle shutoff.


It is probably caused from one or more of the four rubber bushings that mount your compressor to the refrigerator frame. The bushings wear over time and causing the compressor bracket to have a little play. Then when the compressor stops it moves the frame slightly bumping against the mounting bolt causing a slight to moderate sounding clunk when stopping, Also check a lines and cords as a cord refrigeration line near the compressor or fram can also cause the problem.

Everytime the compressor stops there is a loud 'bang' sound.


When the compressor stops, the movements of the internal components are normally absorbed by the internal spring supports. If a spring breaks, etc., the inner moving part will contact the outer case and give a knocking noise or two when it stops. You can make the compressor (even a new one) do this by giving it a shake. The compressor will most likely run for years this way with no performance problems. It is rather expensive to replace a compressor, (especially for only a noise issue) so most people just live with it or get a new refrig and use their old one as a second refrig in a basement or where ever. Please don't bother to rate this, as anything but a Fix-Ya drops my score.

Loud noises, bangs and sounds like water falling


if it’s a banging sound--- I know one of the noises the system 2000 will make is a bang or rattle at the end of the run cycle, which we call "shudder stop". If this is your noise then I have to give you some bad news here. Sorry....... The only way of repairing this is by having your compressor replaced as it has to do with an internal problem in the compressor itself. There may be a silver lining, though, if you are the original purchaser and you have the receipt. Some of these systems came with a 10 year warranty on the compressor, so you might want to check this out.good luck

Washing machine makes a loud rattling sound


Hi.k.
Even though you have cleaned filter, there could still be something in the pump, you need to remove the pump and check there is nothing in it.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.

Haier ESA 3185 AC won't cool; makes escalating loud vibrating noise near front panel/ filter


Have someone check the run capacitor of this unit. If the run capacitor is bad over shorted it can cause the unit to run and short cycle on a current overdraw. This makes for an electrical imbalance in the compressor motor. Next step is the compressor is faulty.

Refrig compressor "knocks" when cycling off


could be a broken spring inside the compressor and would only make a noise as the compressor stops. nothing you can do about it. you would need to break open the compressor, replace the spring, weld it back, then charge it up again with refrigerant.

Freezer not freezing, everything is thawing.. only 3 yrs old, refrig part only 47 degrees


sounds like your compressor is not starting up. unplug your refrig then remove the start relay from the side of the compressor. shake the relay if you hear alot of rattling around in the relay then most likely that is all thats wrong. if it doesnt rattle alot then possibly the compressor is locked up and is bad.

when you shake the relay if its broken internally usually little peices of ceramic will fall out of it. so shake it over a peice of paper to see if that happens/..
