Lift the tank lid off, place it somewhere safe for a moment, and look at what happens: If you're talking about jiggling the handle to get the tank to start to fill with water, then it sounds like the chain or rope is out of adjustment. It can't be TOO TIGHT or the water will leak past your flapper (will cause your dripping noise, tank water level will leak down, causing constant refills), and it cant be TOO LOOSE or the toilet won't flush correctly. Since you didn't mention trouble flushing the toilet, I think that it may be a little too TIGHT. When you jiggle the flush lever-it is supposed to pull a chain or cable to open the flapper at the bottom of the tank. Flush the tank and watch what happens-all the way through to refilling the tank with water and shutting off the water refill valve-Does the flapper get stuck on the chain or something? It is supposed to fall back down to allow the tank to refill after flushing out your toilet. Does the chain look very loose? The dripping sound you described indicates that the flapper is not sealing 100%. The flapper is very easy to replace, you just have to get the adjustment set for when you flush the toilet how sensitive you need it. You amy have to play with it a little bit before you get the adjustment correct.
Hope this helps!

I would suspect that the flush valve has a blokage in it that is causing a harmonic distortion to be transmitted thru your cold water piping.. One way you may be able to help this is to slow fill rate down on your flush valve. If your fush valve has a seperate float to shut off water supply to tank when it;s full there should be a adjustement screw onside of valve where float rod goes in. Adjust screw down to raise float and thus slow fill rate of tank, this should help with the noise. Ifyour toilet does not have adjustable float see if you have a valve on incoming water supply. If you do you can try slow down flow thru supply valve and see if that helps, Thanks

I recently had the same problem. to let you know I replaced the filler and the flapper to NO avail. I tried flushing with the water OFF and it still did it thought it was in the siphon so I removed the water going in there and it still made the sound. This AM it got to me so I was determined to be rid of the WHINE It only happens when the TOP is on that is when it hit me is the seal so great that the vacuum creates the whine I put the little rubber door stops, the one you use in door jams, on the four side and tada no more sound Hope this helps

SOURCE: I have a Glacier Bay
I have a glacier bay dual flush toilet. I have had it since 2009. When it started the hissing noise I tried diff things to fix it. New water valve, new washer from tank to bowel.
The food die in the tank showed water was leaking into the bowl. As a result the water would try to keep filling the take every time a little water escaped making it hiss. Sound familiar?
Finally I contacted someone on line home depot and the glacier bay manufacture was the main people. You need a silicone washer that goes in the main center piece mechanism that lets the water into your tank. You need to remove the center main piece in your tank. at the bottom inside the mechanism itself is a washer the size of a coffee mug top circle.
You can only see it if you take apart the two pieces. Once this goes inside your problem WILL BE SOLVED. The manufacture sent it to me for free. She knew right way. What causes the problem is cleaner tablets in the tank or bad water. So that's it folks
