Loud thumping noise

As soon as I turn on the dryer I hear a VERY loud thumping noise. Wondering if there is a problem with the drum?

    The exhaust fan was the problem. It had missing and broken fins which was throwing the motor out of balance. Thank you for your responses.

Remove the top of the dryer and check all the screws on the drum. One of the screws had backed out and was strking that top and sides of the dryer. Tightened it up and works great.

IT COULD BE THE DRUM BUT I WOULD INSPECT THE DRUM ROLLERS TO SEE IF ONE HAS A FLAT SPOT IN IT. IT MIGHT NOT HURT TO CHECK THE DRUM BAFFLES/PADDLES TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE TIGHT.

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.

New dryer makes a loud thumping full or


I hope he did nt charge you. Because of the seam in a dryer drum, they do make a slight thumping noise but it should not be real loud. I hope the tech took the dryer apart and checked the rollers. One of them may have a flat spot.
I would ask for a factory represent ive to come out and see if they think they would want a dryer in there home that make that much noise.

Dryer has thumping noise.


Yes that is what most likely is the problem to begin with. The drum usually never goes out of round . Replace bearing best choice

Loud thumping noise in Frigidaire model # FDE336RES2


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.
Remember to unplug the dryer.

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.
