Question about Asko T701 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Rythmic thumping sound

My dryer has developed a rythmic 'thump' - apparently once per drum revolution - as if there were a shoe in the dryer, though it still makes the sound when I run it empty. It is gradually getting worse. The dryer otherwise is functioning normally.

Creda simplicity TVU1 tumble dryer is making a thumping noise while drying


Hi dave hemming.
I do not believe it is a bearing that is causing your thumping noise
*****************************************************************************
No...you do not need a new drum...all you need is new drum rollers
You probably have a flat spot on one of the rollers, it will make the thumping sound when the drum rotates.
Go to the following webpage and get your drum rollers and install them and that should take care of the noise you are hearing

My LG Dryer (DLE9677SM) is making a continuous thumping sound throughout the cycle. Sounds like shoes in the dryer. Drum seems like it has excessive play in it...I can move it around from side to side.


you have a worn belt tensioner pulley that needs to be replaced. replace the belt as well for it will be worn from the bad pulley. the inner bearing has locked causing the roller to seize up receiving a flat spot on the roller making this drum thump

Dryer makes clunking noise when it starts and stops. Also noisy during the drying cycle. It's a Maytag


May need a new blower wheel.
The wheel is mounted to the motor and if it is stripped out it will not move air past the heat element.
Have it checked before the heat element fails.

LG DLE3777W dryer thumps when running . It sounds like there are tennis shoes in the drum.


Probable cause is the bearing on the wheel that turns the drum is worn out. They are easy to replace and should cost less than $25. for the part.
Remove the front of the dryer and turn the drum by hand, you should be able to tell which side is worn.
Be sure and unplug first.

My new dryer is makeing thumping noises when its runningsounds likr a pair of shoes are in it


Depending upon the model the drum rests on a set of rollers or glode strips. If the drum has a flat spot or overly large seam then it will thump. If the thump is about once a second.

I have seen this a number of times on the Performa line. The drum needed to be replaced to correct it.

Alternately if there is a flat spot on a roller it will sound faster than once a second.

This is usually covered under a manufacturers warranty.

Henry, its going to be 1 of 2 things. Check inside your drum, see if the vent in the rear has burning or discoloration around it. If it does, it sounds as if your vent is restricted causing the unit to overheat, so clean/fix/replace the venting and your support pulleys will need to be repalce ie flat spots from overheat. If there is no scoarching marks and you know its not the vent or heat issue, the drum seam may have parted causing the thump as every revolution is made.
