Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

If the noise is definitely coming from the filter area, the the filter receptacle will need to be ordered and replaced. Most of the time when you get a noise, however, it will be a high pitched noise coming from the valve on the back below the refrigerator because the water pressure is too low.

OK. Is this something a novice can fix? or do I need a repairman?
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 5 years ago.
If you're handy you can definitely do this yourself. Just make sure to turn the water off to the refrigerator first and unplug the refrigerator as well. Below is a link to the assembly you'd need to order.
