SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Clothes dryer makes a ''thumping'' sound

The thumping is probably the belt going bad... a small chunk comes out of the belt but it does not actually tear. When the part of the belt missing the chunk goes around the motor pulley it makes a thump....
Get a new belt and change it before it breaks completely...

Creda simplicity TVU1 tumble dryer is making a thumping noise while drying

Hi dave hemming.
I do not believe it is a bearing that is causing your thumping noise
***************************************************************************** do not need a new drum...all you need is new drum rollers
You probably have a flat spot on one of the rollers, it will make the thumping sound when the drum rotates.
Go to the following webpage and get your drum rollers and install them and that should take care of the noise you are hearing

My dryer makes a thump thump sound

  1. Thoroughly check the inside of the dryer for any foreign objects with hard surfaces. Sometimes items that fall out of pockets become stuck inside a dryer and make thumping noises.
  2. Check for level
  3. Make sure the dryer is level. A dryer that is out of level may not rotate properly. Banging or thumping noises from unleveled dryers are common, particularly if the dryer is resting against another metal object such as a washer.
  4. Check rollers
  5. If the thumping noises are present only for the first few minutes of the drying cycle the likely culprit is rollers. If the rollers are warped they will need to be replaced and a professional should be called in to help

Not drying

Hi. When a dryer takes that long, check the entire length of the vent pipe for a partial clog from lint. Clean out the lint and the dryer should dry in just one cycle. Regarding the thump it most likely is a loose or bad roller. J.

Thumping/rubbing sound in drum

The belt tensioner roller has a flat spot caused by a worn bearing that catches and stops whilet the drum is turning. This causes the flat spot and the noise its making. You can purchase a new roller by itself and do change the belt the same time too

Dryer making a thumping noise, heating okay, drum is going round. could drum be out of round and thumping on the rollers

the roller is out of round instead for the internal bearing has dried up and locked tight making the belt to burn the nylon roller flat in the spot the belt rides on. It will be neccessary to replace the belt and the roller as well

Makes thumping sound on start up,thumps or knocks ocassionally while drying

This is probably your drum rollers going out. While you are replacing the rollers, I recommend you also replace the belt and also blow all the lint out of your dryer while you are inside the unit. This will prolong the life of your dryer as well as prevent a potential fire from lint getting caught on fire. Call us for your parts and we will be sure to get the right ones for you. We need the brand and model number off your dryer. Ella :>)

Constant "thumping" sound when dryer is going

you can fix it by ordering a whirlpool roller kit but its no big deal the drum sits on rubber rollers when it just sits the rolers get flat spots on them like tires and makes the thumping sounds its just noisey but no big deal but they do make a kit with softer rollers
