Thumbing noise as the maytag gas dryer is spining

Thumping noise
When my maytag gas dryer ( M# ldg8624AAE S# 13124577MS) is spinning there is a thumping noise. Is it the belt? How is the belt on this dryer replaced? Would the noise be caused by a different problem? Would the noise be louder on start up?

    I'm preparing to change the rollers to solve the thumping noise, Is it a good idea to change anything else at the same time.?

My dryer stop working, it made a big noise and is not spining anymore, ts sounds as if it is out of place or something, and after 3 minutes it starts smelling like burn My dryer is a Maytag...


TRY SPINNING THE DRUM BY HAND. IF IT SPINS EASY, YOU HAVE A BELT BROKEN.
MOST LIKELY THE BANG WAS WHEN THE BELT BROKE. YOU NEED TO PULL THE DRYER OUT, OPEN IT UP AND REPLACE THE BELT. A SERVICE APPLIANCE REPAIR WILL NEED TO BE CALLED. - - SORRY

How do i take apart the my dryer


Sounds like a drum roller bearing. When they go bad they form a flat spot and that against the drum will give a loud thump. Turn the drum by hand and you should feel the flat spot. You may have to remove the back panel to get a good look see and a repair access. Good luck.

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.

Pav2300aww spinning very slow,and not draining


In all these Cases it sounds like a faulty lip seal. These special seals have Sealed bearings inside. Water gets through the seal and into the bearing which causes it to thump (like a helicopter) or squeal very loudly. As far as draining, the machine has to reach a curtain speed before the pump can turn fast enough to work.
