    Different dryer, same problem. It turned out to be the wheels that the drum rolls on whilst drying the clothes. Somtimes the only way to determint=e what the problem is is to take some panels off and and look. Sometimes you might have to run it to here/see what's wrong. My duet will safely (in my opinion) run without the top and back on, at least temporarily. Consider your skills, and try stuff if you feel comfortable. Look at the power plug connections, and make sure that before plugging it into the wall that nothing looks as if it could make a connection between the wire terminals and the dryer frame.

    I have a Whirlpool electric dryer and it is clunking when rotating the drum as well...the clunking sound is louder with heavier loads...I took the unit as part as much as I could and did not visually see any defects, but isolated the sound to the intake fan in the lower left corner...any other ideas as to what is going on?

Screeching sound during cycle


Check for debris in the pump impeller. Your owner's manual will describe how to
1. Remove baskets
2, Remove wash arm
3. Rotate (inner) lock ring on stainless steel bottom plate to release and remove it.
4. Rotate top impeller by hand to feel for rough spots indicating debris in lower impeller.
5. Rotate motor assembly lock ring to release rotor assembly and clear debris from sump.
6. Reassemble in reverse order and check operation.

This can also occur with a drawer that is not run often (less than once or twice per month) and indicates a dry bearing surface. Most often running a rinse and hold once or twice frees this up and corrects the problem. Drawers work best when operated once a week or more.

Is it normal to hear a squeak from the number 4 cylinder rod bearing as I manually rotate engine crank? I have the front end and oil pan off.


make sure that the squeak is not from dry rings in the bore
put oil down the cylinder and rotate the crank
if it goes it could be just dry and need no further checks but if it is in a bearing then it is serious and needs replacing
turning a crank should produce a dry scraping noise as the pistons move up and down the bores but certainly not other noise

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
*****************************************************************************
No...you 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
Please take time to rate me

Dryer makes a clunking noise while drying. Is it possible that the drum is "Out of balance"?


Most likely if it is a thump thump noise a drum roller has a flat spot and is causing the noise.
The dryer will operate ok but it will be loud.

A service call may be needed to replace all 4 drum rollers.

Dryer makes rumbling noise intermittently


It sounds like a faulty roller under the drum. Need to pop the top of the dryer, then remove the front -- you'll probably easily spot the faulty part.

Hotpoint TDC32 Dryer makes a noise like plates sliding


Could be coins in the drum.  Might also be a bad roller bearing.  Hard to tell.
