Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

So I think you mean the model number is *****FD22786ST. Either way, that humming noise occurs when the diverter valve on the filter receptacle isn't opening up all the way. This can randomly happen when the filter is replaced if the receptacle is going out or it could just be a bad filter not engaging the diverter valve properly. Try to install the old filter and if the noise persists, call warranty and have them replace the filter receptacle. If the noise goes away with the old filter, return the new filter and get a new one because it wasn't manufactured properly.
