Re: dryer makes banging noise

Basscat, you first remove the door by removing the screws from the hinges. The door will lift up a litte and pull off. Next remove the spacers on the other side. Now the front panel will pull out from the top. There will be two 1/4 inch screws with latches on each side of the frame, remove these and the top will lift up. Now by holding the door switch and starting the dryer, you will be able to see what is banging. Once you determine that, you can remove the bulk-head, should be 4 screws, be sure to unplug the door switch. Unfasten the belt, remember the configuration and remove the drum. You are now able to get at the insides. back.

Whats wrong with Dryer

The drum slides at the front are made of felt. Yours have worn away. The drum is banging up and down. If you open the door you will find that you can lift and lower the drum. If you drop the drum, you will hear it bang. They are easy to replace if you can get the front off the machine.

It could also be that the rear drum bearing is worn, but that doesn't normally make a banging noise. It is a metal spindle attached to the drum into a nylon sleeve in the back of the machine.

My tumble dryer is making a loud banging noise when it turns. It is on for a few minutes and seems to happen when it switches to turn the opposite way

It will be worn slipper pads that are around the front edge of the drum. If your dryer can run when inverted that will stop the noise until the pads wear down again.
Purchase some new slipper pads and remove the back panel of the dryer moving the drum back about 1 inch. You will now see were the slipper pads are fitted around the inside edge at the front.
There will be about 6 of them, you can take the top ones and move them to the bottom. This will also stop the banging until they also wear down.

Drum makes loud banging noise.

Maybe the heat in your dryer over time has melted weak glue and loose components are hitting against the drum

The loud banging noise in the spin part of the cycle is usually caused by bad drum bearings. The repair is carried replacing the bearing at the back of the drum. Such kind of replacement is carried disassembling most of the appliance to reach the back of the tub. If you have not done similar repairs before it may be better to call a technician ringing the Asko support number listed on the owners manual.

Gas Dryer LDG7304AAE making horribly loud noise while drying

Solution for the Maytag model is most likely to replace the blower wheel. Remove the two screws on the front panel (just a couple inches off the floor) and swing the front panel up to allow you to unhook the top side of the panel from the clips at the very top of the front panel. You do not have to remove the wires, just set the front panel to the side. Blower wheel is at the lower left. The old wheel most likely no longer has a D shaped hole to match the motor shaft, and spins freely. Remove cover. Replace the wheel part number Y303836 for a LDG7304AAE which is held on the shaft with a spring type clamp. Reassemble. Not really very hard to do. On a difficulty scale or 1 - 10, I'd rate it a 3.
