You may have something next to the drum inside the covering or the motor may be going bad.

My amana gas dryer is making a loud knocking noise. it does heat


Sounds like you might have a pully belt problem, or perhaps you left a shoe in the drier? It is possible the guides for the drum are worn or out of alignment also.

Whirlpool fridge incessant buzzing


The knocking noise when cuts off , is a compressor internal motor support spring , broken . This does not mean the compressor is bad , only noisy for the rest of the compressor life , but should be covered under the 5 yr warranty . The gurgling sound is the refrigerant being pumped thru the system . The buzzing could be from the compressor also . My suggestion , would be to call a factory warranty company , to see if they can replace the compressor under warranty .

Very loud knocking noise that can be felt if touching the unit.


If the heater has a heat sink with a brass non-return valve then this could have a fault creating a hammering noise that resonates through the heater.
