Just had the same provlem and the drum is in the back of my truck. Open the door and manually turn the drum slowly until you hear the thump. Look at the seam that runs along the baffle and pay attention the seam near the raer and see if it separates when you hear the noise. A common problem is the weld breaks and you will need to replace the drum or take it out to have re-welded unless it is still under the year warrant which I am guessing it is not. Don't even try to call LG because they will not help in any fahion.

Bumping noise during spin cycle


Although a noisy washing machine is not typically a signthat something is broken, it definitely can be annoying. Usually the noise froma washing machine can be fixed fairly easily, but a few different fixes mayneed to be tried before it can be determined what the true culprit of the noisewas. INSTRUCTIONAND TOOLS NEEDED STATED BELOW Flashlight, Screwdriver, Drive belt 1 Check the drum bearings if the washing machine ismaking a rumbling noise. The noise may possibly stem from water getting intothe bearings. Take the belt off and spin the drum by hand. If there is arumble, remove the bearings and replace them with new ones. 2 Check the spider at the back of the drum. The spideris the three-armed device that holds the drum in place. If there is one loudnoise on each revolution of the drum, there is a good chance the spider haspartially become loose. Tighten the bolts on the spider to silence the noise itcauses. 3 Check for coins. If the noise the washing machinemakes sounds like metal on metal, there is a good chance that some change hasslipped from a pocket and is now in the dryer. Take a flashlight and look inthe drum for coins, paper clips, and other small items. 4 Adjust the legs. Many washing machines make morenoise than they should because they have not been properly balanced. Re-adjustthe legs to make sure that they are all even. This will keep the washingmachine from moving and will ensure that the noise it creates while it moveswill go away. 5 Replace the drive belt. Often a high-pitched squeakynoise can come from a drive belt that has been worn down. Simply replacing theold belt with a new one will fix this problem.

Makes squeaking noise when running

A common problem with many dryers is the wearing of the guide slides or wheels. Different dryers use different methods of hold the drum in place by giving it something to “ride” on. These guides can be either in the front or the back, but usually the back ones wear out first. This is because the drive belt is in the back and puts a bit of extra stress on the back of the dryer drum. The belt can also causes squeaks or “bumps”, thumping, etc… so it is important to either change everything or determine which part is causing the problem.
When these guides or the belt wears it can cause squeaks, thumps, bumps, slow rotation, etc…
I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

My dryer started making a bumping noise when it

Your slides are worn and when you put clothes in the metal tub is now getting tracktion/ making metal to metal contact when it shouldn't and overloading the electric/belt drive. There is a kit to fix the problem but the dryer will need disassebled to put it in. At this time it would also be adviseable to replace the belt and tub bearing as well.
