If you do get into unit and the motor is a “plastic box” not a standard looking motor, I would replace it, if nothing else is in the way, ice, wires, etc. I have had some of these motors make some weird sounds. {sorry I did not post with other}

Sounds like the evaporator fan hitting ice in the freezer section, or a wire is hitting the fan. Take the back cover off [inside freezer] and I bet you will see your problem.I did not see this exact model number  I take it this is a bottom freezer? If it is remove drawer and you can get to back cover.

whrilpool model GB25HDXTQ01= I hear the noise that lasts about 10 sec. that sounds like a woodpecker or a maybe a motor having a hard start. Appears to be coming from the top of fridg portion. Once I catch it doing it but the frig was running. At fisrt thought it was the ice maker but it is in the bottom. Some timing it occurs more than others and is does not do it on any schedule. Got any ideas? Almost sounds like a motor going bad but does not squeal or chrip like one.
