That's probably because it doesn't know the words. Just kidding.
Whistling sounds usually indicate some type of restriction in the water supply. It may be the stop valve is not open all the way. Dirt or scale in the fill valve or lime buildup can also cause a whistling noise. check for these issues. and clean or replace parts as necessary.
Hope this helps.

Toilet stools whistle after flushing

This could be caused by the sound of water jetting into the water tank. Just open the tap to the water tank slightly more until the whistling stops. The flusher valve in the tank may be leaking, causing the water jet to open again and the whistling noise.

Handle is sticking in one toilet the other toilet makes a loud whisteling noise after flusing

The handle is probably worn out on the first toilet. The whistling on the other toilet is probably from a restriction in the fill valve, if you can live with whistling, it's not really a problem. If not, I recommend trying a different type of valve.

I have a Jacuzzi Perfecta toilet (bought Aug. 21, 2008) at Lowe's. I have the sales ticket. The toilet works fine. The tank fills very slowly (2 minutes) before it shuts off. It also makes a whistling...

Have you tried shutting water off and take top of valve appart and flush it out. It may have something in valve causing water to be restricted. It will have an arrow on it to direction to get it to come off.

Take appart and clean rubber disc and you can put something over top of valve , a small cup or something to enable you to flush the tank. Have someone help you and hold the cup above the valve so that when you turn water on for a few bursts to flush out the valve it goes into tank.

The actual stream that flows through valve is restricted down to almost 1/8 " opening so it wouldn't take mush to block the flow of water.

The disc you take out you can replace it, if it seems to be damaged and not working correctly. That will affect the flow also.

How do I stop my bathroom tap from whistling

try fitting new tap washers - if it is an old fashioned capstan operated tap. If you have a ceramic valve (1/4 turn taps), then a new valve may be needed.
