The bushing in the back of the dryer is probley bad. to check and see take the top loose and look on the back of the dryer and see if the bushing is loose or out. to replace it you have to pull the drum. there also could be some screws on the back of the dryer holding it on.

SOURCE: Dryer Drum won't spin

You probably have a broken belt, Are you up for a do it yourself repair? or call a service tech.

Belts cost about $8 on line, buying it from the tech who installs it could cost you $20+ and then trip charge, tech time etc.

Belt replacement is easy for those of us that have done it, getting the belt back on the drum and thru the motor is the worst.

My dryer (maytag atlantis) has started making a loud clunking noise with each revolution. its still drying fine but sounds terrible. any thoughts?


A loose belt will allow the drum to slip when clothes hit the paddles in the drum. It sometimes sounds like a pair of tennis shoes are in the dryer when it slips and is usually rythymic.

These machines also use drum rollers that can make a racket when they go bad.

Inteli dry regular cycle, timer gets stuck and won't advance. other cycles work fine. thanks


An unusual noise coming from a running clothes dryer can cause concern, although these noises are rarely indicative of a more serious problem. Once the source of the noise has been located, a few simple repairs or adjustments will usually solve the problem and restore peace to your laundry room.

    Gas
  1. A gas dryer may emit an occasional clicking sound. This noise is caused by the gas valve and is a normal operating sound. The clicking sound coming from the gas valve can not be eliminated and it does not indicate any mechanical problem with the dryer.
  2. Warm Up
  3. A newly installed dryer, or a dryer that has been left unused for a period of time, may exhibit a thumping noise during the first few minutes of the drying cycle. According to the Maytag company, this noise is normal and should not be a cause for concern. If the noise continues for more than a few minutes or repeats on subsequent loads, however, then steps should be taken to locate the origin of the noise.
  4. Clothing
  5. Clothing can become knotted and balled up in the clothes dryer. This can cause vibration or a load thumping noise. When this happens, open the dryer and remove the knotted clothing. Separate the articles of clothing and place them back in the dryer. The thumping noise should not continue unless the clothing has become knotted again.
  6. Vibration
  7. Place your hands on top of the dryer and push down firmly; if the dryer tilts to one side, the clothes dryer is not level. This can cause the dryer to vibrate during the cycle and if the vibration is severe enough, the surrounding walls could be damaged by the dryer. Maytag dryers have four leveling legs installed into holes on the bottom of the dryer. These legs are included with the dryer and should have been screwed into the holes during installation. A wrench can be used to adjust the legs until the dryer is stable and level.
  8. Foreign Objects
  9. Small objects such as coins, buttons, or paperclips can become lodged between the drum and the sides of the clothes dryer. These items usually end up in the dryer after being left in clothing pockets during laundering. Turn the dryer off and remove any clothes to a laundry basket. Allow the dryer to cool down so that you won't burn your hand on any metal surfaces inside the dryer which may be hot. Look inside the dryer and pay special attention to the front and rear edges of the dryer drum. Run your fingers along the grooves where the drum connects to the dryer to locate any foreign objects. These objects could be bouncing around the dryer causing noise during the cycle, and then settling into the grooves when the dryer stops making them difficult to locate. Remember to remove all items from clothing pockets before laundering in the future to avoid this problem.

Clunking noise


The clunking noise may be a broken weld on the drum.  Every time it turns and passes through the guide wheel supports, it makes a thunk thunk noise.  You will need to have a qualified LG technician diagnose the problem correctly but that's what it sounds like.
