My 20 year old 25 cu. ft. Whirlpool has started making a rather loud rattle/hum when the compressor comes on. The noise seems to be coming from about halfway up the back of the box on the freezer side (listened with a stethoscope). If I open the freezer door and push against the back of the freezer compartment...the sound will go away for awhile. It's almost like a tube or something rattling against the inside of the freezer. If I push on the outside of the box in the same place, nothing happens. I thought maybe the compressor was going out...but that's way too high for a compressor. Any suggestions?
ANSWER Hello John,
Based on the information it sound like the evaporator fan motor 4389144 is at fault and would need to be replaced.
