Hi hour mail...

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

Note: This method works with most front loading machines.

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer if you have to.
Note: Some tops hinge and tilt backwards so they do not have to be removed and the electrical console with stay with the lid.
Also remove the lint filter and the 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.
Remove the front of the dryer by removing two screws located on either side of the top of the dryer housing and unplug the door switch.
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 replace the front felt seal on the drum if it needs to be replaced. Be sure to use a good grade of weatherproof cement on the seal to glue it to the drum, sometimes the glue is furnished with the seal.
Now is also a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also 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 they will make a thumping type of noise.
If your drum rollers have too much wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them and are only squeeling then they probably only need lubrication.
Remove the rollers and clean the shafts that the roller rolls on, remove any hair,dust,etc from roller and shaft.
Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil, or a light lubricant like Vaseline.
Reassemble the dryer.
Plug back into your electrical receptical.
This should solve your noise problem.

I sent my unit to a repair company in town because the dryer was getting really hot during a cycle and shutting itself off. They gave it back after just cleaning it out. Now when I try to run the drye


You have I think two issues. One is a clogged vent/vent hose. You need to have the vent system cleaned out. If the unit is not getting hot with the vent off, you probably have a defective heating element. This probably went out due to the clogged venting system.

Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire dryer, model# GLER642A, is making a thumping noise when running, and you want to know how to fix this. Typically, this is not a do it yourself repair, as there are no step by step instruction manuals. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine what is causing the thumping noise. Hope this is helpful.

I have a Frigidaire model FTF2140FS1, front loader washing machine, works great till the final rinse, then there is a noise that is in tune with the revolutions of the tub, sort of a thumping like som


It will most likely be the start of a bearing failure, it will get slightly louder the faster the drum turns, it's not an easy job to replace but it can be done.

You have to remove the top lid. Then remove the front panel. Then remove the belt and drum.
Your problem is a bad rear drum support assembly.

My dryer -model FER311F makes a thumping noise while in use.


Check the 4 feet & make sure top of of appliance is level. These 4 feet will have threaded adjustments, just tilt the dryer back and should be able to turn with your hand or may require pliers, good luck.
