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

Washing Machine making a loud whirring noise when water is filling and when the machine is spinning out


Check the motor bearings If your washing machine is making a high-pitched whine or squealing noise while running, the main culprit is usually worn motor bearings. To check the motor bearings, remove the belt and run the motor by itself, listening for the noise. If it makes the noise, than the problem is most likely the result of worn motor bearings and has nothing to do with issues in the rest of the washer. Check for Obstructions Sometimes coins, bra underwires and other metal objects come loose in the wash and become stuck between the tub and the drum. Using a flashlight, take a good look inside the washing machine. If you see dents, scratches or dings, that's a sign that there either are or have been items bouncing around in there that can make a horrible racket. Check for Grease Spatter A high-pitched squealing can be caused when the grease thins around the bearing that's located under the tub. Open up the washing machine and check the interior for grease spatters or spots. That could mean that the grease has thinned out around the bearing and it's making the noise because of rubbing. Check the Drum for Irregularities Spin the drum by hand, listening for the noise. If it makes the noise in the same spot with each rotation, the problem could be with the washing machine drum itself. Parts of the drum can corrode over time, leaving it vulnerable to cracks or rust.

We were giving a maytag dryer Mod# MDET236 it was making a loud knocking noise so we opened it up and found a pocket knife and some coins after puting it back together it is still making the same loud...


First thing would be to make sure there wasn't something else in the drum. Next, it is possible that one of the rollers the drum rolls on could have a flat spot. This will require opening the case of the machine and getting a look at those rollers.

My dryer bangs every rotation (even when there is nothing in it) is this an easy fix?


Yes...and cheap. Go on line to find the parts you need..I am sure you will need new drum rollers for your machine.
Follow the directions below if possible:

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.

If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Remove the lint filter and the two screws holding the lint filter housing in place.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch.
Then remove the top of the dryer. Some lids clip on, some slide on.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt.
Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm
pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go
to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots
or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers are making a "thumping" sound then you have flat spots on them
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably
are making a squeeling noise and is only in need of lubrication.
Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil.
Reassemble the dryer, plug back in.
This should solve your noise problem.

Thumping/rubbing sound in drum


The belt tensioner roller has a flat spot caused by a worn bearing that catches and stops whilet the drum is turning. This causes the flat spot and the noise its making. You can purchase a new roller by itself and do change the belt the same time too

Kenmore electric dryer making loud noise when running


It sounds like the belt that goes around the drum. I have a similar Kenmore, and I get that same rotational thumping noise. The belt is probably about to break or come apart. If you take it off and run it trough your hands, I think that you'll find either belt separation, or a bad spot missing a chunk.
Fortunately the belt is a cheap item. I've kept my Kenmore dryer running over 20 years now.

The drum on my amanda dryer is making a noise as it go around.
