    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?

Frigedaire dryer front loader makes clunking noise


Hi kirst_alers2 - From what you have described it sounds like you either have a problem with the belt, front (and/or rear) bearing, or a loose connection with the motor or drum. Lint or something else clogging the vent could be causing the dryer to take a longer time to dry the clothing. If the dryer is taking too long to dry then the issue may lie with a faulty sensor. I recommend contacting a professional to accurately diagnose the issue, the part(s) may have to be replaced depending if they are worn, damaged or loose. You can often locate a qualified tech through the manufacturer website.

When the dryer is on it makes a loud clunking sound during each rotation


Check to see if something was left in a pocket when dried and fell out. like a coin, a magnet, a wrench. Often, things fall out of pockets and make a loud clunking sound when the drier is turned on.

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 making a louder than normal noise when drying


Possibly the roller, I would have to hear it to be sure, but if it sounds like a clunking noise, it is probably a roller, if it is more of a high pitched whine, or a sound like a penny in a vaccum you probably have something stuck in your blower.

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.

LG DRYER MAKING CLUNKING NOISE


Look inside the drum at the seam, front and back side. The weld on the stainless steel drum may have cracked. You would need to replace part number 3045EL1002F. It is moderatly difficult to replace.

Clunking noise


The clunking noise may be a broken weld on the drum.  Every time it turns and passes through the guide wheel supports, it makes a thunk thunk noise.  You will need to have a qualified LG technician diagnose the problem correctly but that's what it sounds like.
