Why is my Whirlpool freezer making noise?

A Whirlpool refrigerator runs loud when the condenser fan motor fails. If there is too much dirt accumulated in and around the fan blades, it prevents the fan from working properly. The same is true with dirty condenser coils; if they are clogged, the condenser won’t work properly and your refrigerator will run loudly.

Why does my new Whirlpool refrigerator run all the time?
