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

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.

Dryer drum is scraping against something and making a thumping noise as it spins


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Problem 1... Your scraping noise is probably coming from the drum rubbing the door as it rotates, you door seal may need replacement.
Problem 2...Your other problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.

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

The dryer (Bosch Nexxt 500) makes a loud grinding noise when rotating. Any idea what this may be?


The noise could be your drum rollers need lubricant or replacement.
When the drum rollers get flat spots on them they will make a bumping/thumping type of noise.
The grinding noise sounds to me like the drum rollers are in need of lubrication.
