Your thumpin noise is most likely a flat spot on your drum rollers. open the door and remove the 4 screws ( 2 on either side ). this will allow you to take the front panel off. after that is removed, there are 4 3/8 nut screws that hold on the front bulkhead. remove those screws and lift up on the bulkhead to remove ( note: you may need to remove the 2 nuts screws and brackets that secure the top so you can lift the top up ). after removing the bulkhead, you will need to undo the belt ( easiest if you do it from the back ) and take out the drum. your drum rollers are on the back of the dryer on the bottom. you can visually inspect them and if they are bad, they will need to be replaced.

There is a loud thumping noise when the driver is working It is still drying the clothes


The drum turns on a track in the front area, it is turning on two wheels in the back side. Probably one of the wheels has bad bearings and isn't supporting well, flopping around. Assuming this is electrical type, just have someone remove a panel in the back to see if that's it.

Bosch wfk 2800 drum makes a noise when turned around


When you rotate the drum by hand slowly does it feel bumpy and still make a noise? If so suspect the bearings on the drum to be the culprit. Hope this helps.

if you cant see a belt about 1/4" wide around the drum, there will be a mark where the belt was on the drum before it broke,remove front panel and restring belt around the drum,then replace front drum piece that holds the drum in place and then string belt around idler and motor pulleys and replace front cover

It sounds like the spider arm supports in your washer has failed. The spider arms hold the stainless steel wash drum to the axle. You need to stop using the machine immediately since the wash drum is flopping around the plastic tub. It is an expensive fix. The replacement drum/spider can cost over $300 with shipping. Get a few estimates before deciding whether to repair or replace. Sorry.

Noise when the drum turns.


Hello, I have the same issue with a machine now 5.5 years old. At lower drum rotating speeds, a loud clicking (almost stripping sound) is heard. I have only inspected from the lower front cover and found nothing. Will also look in the back for clues...

Dryer making very loud noise.


We had the exact same noise all of a sudden start coming from our 2 year old dryer. We checked everything, rollers, pulleys, motors, etc. I was certain it was coming from the upper left. Finally we found a loose screw had fallen into the front felt ring. Problem solved!
Good luck.
