Bad roller. Inspect by breaking down the unit. Depending on the type of door the dryer has, is how you approach the access of these dryers. Mostly though you yank out the filter first.Remove the 2 screws in the filter housing on top.Then use a putty knife to pop the top. Remove the screws holding the front panel on. VERY IMPORTANT! Raise the front up an inch before pulling forward or the panel clips will break! Some models have a panel on bottom. If they do then this panel must come off first. Then you remove the door springs and back off the screws holding down the bottom of the door panel. Then pop the top and remove the screws on top to get the panel out of your way. Remove the drum, get the **** out and inspect the rollers.Sounds like there is a pair of boots in the dryer - 6ad37b7.jpg

The dryer works but makes a loud thumping noise model#GLEQ642AS2


All dryers have some type of roller system that supports the drum as it turns. It sounds like one of the rollers or roller bearings has worn and is making that thumping noise. If you have some basic skills and good general mechanical sense you could fix it yourself. Make sure the dryer is unplugged before you attempt anything.

Dryer makes a "thumping" sound even when it is running and clothes are not in it. Sounds like a pair of shoes are in there being dried.

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.

When the dryer runs even with nothing in it it , makes a thumping


check the inside of the drumm make sure none of the fins are loose,
but sounds more like the wheel rollers are bad, sometimes is loud when it starts then seems to go away a little after the dyer get hotter, is the heat that makes the metal bearings make less noise. u can replace the wheels,the belt an tensioner at the same time is cheaper to pruchase the kit an have it all done the first time! bad wheels put more stress on belt an eventually will break apart so just order the entire kit

Dryer makes a loud internal thumping sound when running


Sounds like a roller. You will need to remove the drum to see which one it is. They usually develop a flat spot which makes the thumping sound. First remove the top. This should give you access to the screws inside for the front panel. Take the front panel off, take the belt off the motor, and remove the drum to check the rollers.

Thumping/Screeching sound, MD:LDE8616ACE. Rollers? Idler Pulley?


Your description sounds like one or both of the rear drum supports (rollers) is bad. A quiet thumping is almost always present as the weld in the drum comes in contact with the drum supports. A binding support will squeal, and the thumping could be worse at that time. After running the dryer until the noises are present, once disassembled, you can tell if a support is bunding or rolling normally by spinning it by hand. The same goes for the idler pulley. Make sure power is disconnected from the unit befor attempting any repairs.

While the unit is disassembled for repair, make sure your your old cat is not inside.

Dryer is making loud thumping noise.


Take off the back panel of the dryer and look at the motor and belt turning the drum. There may be something caught on the drum and is pinned in place causing the noise. The motor could be loose on the platform and needs to be tightened. It is probably something physical and seen causing the noise.
