I've had a Whirlpool French Door Fridge Model # WRF757SDEM…

Hi Pearl, I've had...

Hi Pearl, I've had a Whirlpool French Door Fridge Model # WRF757SDEM for about a year. Love it but this week it has started making a croaking sound (seriously, like a frog) or when rubber rubs over rubber, every 3-5 minutes. Any ideas?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Model # WRF757SDEM, was purchased about December 30, 2016

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If possible

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Haven't had any problems with it. Just changed the water filter for the first time; about same time as the noise but haven't been able to figure out if there's a connection.

  1. Did you run a full gallon of water through the filter after changing it?
  2. Is the ice maker still working?

ice maker it working.

Hmm, and is the noise when you dispense water or every 3-5 minutes consistently?

34;is") - Would flushing more water through help?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Every few minutes consistently with or without use of dispenser

More water may help, especially if you have low water pressure (well water, cistern, etc).

  • Does it make the noise even when the refrigerator has cycled off and is not running?

not sure

Well, I suspect the issue is with the filter change. If you run another gallon of water through and it still makes the noise, you can either call for warranty repair or, if you choose to repair at your expense, post back with noise location and if it makes the noise when cycled off, that would be very helpful! It should not make that noise so something is amiss.....

I think so too. Just try running water through and it seems to be better. Thank you!

Excellent, see what another gallon does and I bet it goes away! Thank you!

Hi Pearl, I have a GE PYE23KSDSS French Door Refrigerator.
