Why do i hear a noise when i flush the toilet?

If you hear a foghorn sound, you probably have an older toilet with a metal ballcock-style fill valve, and the sound comes from a loose washer in the ballcock assembly. To flush the toilet, open the toilet tank. Lift the float ball to the top of the tank when the valve starts making noise.
