The bearing or spindle the drum rotates on is probably bad or worn out. You can get to the back and turn it by hand and feel it when you turn it. You can tell if it is metal rubbing. If so, you can replace it.

SOURCE: banging noise when the drum is spinning

I had the same problem -- the banging started suddenly but got worse and worse. I took the top off, looked inside, spun the drum around several times, and lo and behold a wooden bead fell out! Who know how it got there, but no banging now that it is gone!

SOURCE: Dryer drum or rollers or bearings are squeaking on my Kenmore 970-C69042-00 clothes dryer. How do I best trouble-shoot and repair it?

Instructions

    • 1 Turn off the gas to a gas dryer or unplug an electric one. Move the dryer from its position at least 3 feet from the wall. This will give you room to work. Pulling the dryer out into an even more open space may make this easier.
    • 2 Push the putty knife in between the top and main body of the dryer on the front of the dryer. Slide the putty knife near the corner closest to you. Push the knife and pull up to release the pins that hold the top onto the body.

    • 3 Lift the top off the body using a screwdriver as a lever.
    • 4 Label the wires that are connected to the front of the dryer. Make note of which wire goes where. Unclip the wires from the clip that holds them, remove the wires and place them to the side. You will be reattaching these wires later. Be sure to mark them so that you can place them back in order later.
    • 5 Remove the screws that hold the fount of the dryer onto the rest of it. There should be four on most models.
    • 6 Pull the front towards you until the drum inside comes loose from its bearing. Slide the front panel up to reveal the pulleys at the bottom of the machine.
    • 7 Grab the idler pulley. It is the one in front of the motor. Move it to the right to disengage the belt. Remove the belt. Do not remove the belt that goes to the drum.
    • 8 Put on your gloves and slide the drum out of the dryer. Be sure to use hand protection as the edges may be sharp.
    • 9 Inspect the two rollers. If they appear damaged, or you find metal dust under them, your rollers need replacing.
    • 10 Remove the plastic clip on the right hand side if the right roller needs replacing. Remove the metal friction plate, metal brace and plastic clip on the left hand side if the left roller needs replacing.
    • 11 Put on the new rollers and reattach the parts you removed.
    • 12 Slide the drum back in and grab the idler pulley. Pull the pulley to the left until the belt is tight.
    • 13 Slide and screw the front into place and reattach the top.

There's normally a plastic triangle piece you have to remove to slide the bearing off. Otherwise you've got 2 1/2 inch bolts holding the bearing on the back depending on how old it is. You gave a model number for a washer.

You can't take the back panel off because that is what holds the bearing and holds the drum. I can tell you the bearing is the most likely cause. http://www.repairclinic.com/ sells the bearing kit and I would go ahead and replace the belt while you have it apart. I've done it by myself a few times, but it is best to have someone help at least while putting it back together. Holding the drum in place while putting the screws in the back of the drum (on the bearing) is the hardest part of the whole job. I believe I also got the directions from Repairclinic.com also.

Squeaking Kenmore Stackable Dryer


Your rear drum bearing has worn through the plastic and is now hitting the metal support underneath it,
soon it will act like a guillotine and slice of the ball, the drum will fall backwards into the heating element and short to ground causing the fuse to blow the heater element to burn intwo and the whole thang will be dead in the water.

Kenmore dryer making excessive noise


Likely the main drum bearing in the back. I have seen these go bad, and loud squeaky noise tells you. You can get a new main bearing and replace. It is in the center of the back of the drum, accessee through back panel of dryer usually.
