Why is my tumble dryer making a loud banging noise when on its a white knight model CL3A

Most of the time a tumble dryer will work like a dream but, as with all appliances, occasionally there will be technical problems.
If your tumble dryer is making a banging, whining (or other strange noise) it's best to diagnose and sort out the problem. It could be the result of a number of things, but what you certainly don't want to do is ignore it.
Here are the most common reasons for your tumble dryer making odd noises.
Coins and keys
One of the most common reasons for a banging, rattling or clanking is keys or coins left in pockets - so always check them before you put any clothes in the tumble dryer. More often than not you won't hear anything until the dryer cycle is in full spin.
Uneven surfaces
If the dryer is vibrating or shaking during spinning, check to make sure the dryer's sitting on a level surface. If it's fitted with height adjusters on the front legs, adjust them accordingly to ensure the machine is level as this will often reduce or eliminate the banging sound.
Drum bearings
If the tumble dryer is noisy when its turning and the whole appliance is shaking and rumbling, it could be indicative of a problem with the drum bearings, which help the wheels turn freely and easily.
The drum
If the banging noise is continuous when the drum is turning then it might be problem with the drum itself. If the noise is a metallic one, it could be the result of the drum scraping on something inside the machine. You could always check the drum visually for any marks or dents.
Motor bearings
If the tumble dryer is emitting a high-pitched screaming or whining noise it could be a sign that the motor bearings are wearing out.
Tension pulley wheels
If there's a squeaking noise coming from the dryer it could be the result of wear on the tension pulley wheels. This occurs more frequently on older models...or try this link..

Clanking noise coming from Allison Transmission on a 2001 Chrevrolet Silverado 8.1 Liter engine

this does sound like theres a loose line tapping the engine/frame,during warm up the engine idles faster which could make it vibrate faster causing the the clanking or tapping noise,if this has started after trans fluid change,then check the lines running from the trani to radiator sometimes the service person might bang into something causing plastic clips that hold the lines to break,try getting under it and have someone start the truck and listen to see where it's coming from also hold the lines & see if the noise stops,the service guy could have unbolted something & never put the bolt back causing the clank ex.line may have a clip holding it thats bolted to the trani pan ?good luck

I turn my dryer on after cleaning the filter. out of the sudden i hear like a metal clanking noise, and form then on , it wont start, it makes a sound when i try to turn on, but it doesn't start

you got some loose change or something through the drum. You may have actually gotten something wedged around the rim of the drum . Unplug the dryer , open the door, and inspect around the rim of the drum. Try to turn the drum and see if it is free.

My Bosch Nexxt 100 washer is making a clanking noise. I checked to see if anything was in the pockets of the clothes I was washing. It sounds like something is loose inside of the washer but not in the...

By your description of the noise<it sounds as if the bearing in the "agitator"is defective or "wornout". Or at times anymetal object could some out of pockets and get lodged under the drum of the can check this by taking a long flat object,such as a rule,and slide it around the inside of the the machine.

Electric dryer makes weird clanking banging noises

if the drum rides on rollers , you might want to check the rollers for breaks or chips which will create the sounds you describe. also check the idler pulley between motor and drum. it can wear and rattle as well....and there may be a possibility that something is caught in the blower fan assembly or the blower fan itself is loose on the motor shaft..
hope this helps a little. jay

When the dryer is running it has started to make a clanking noise

The top on most dryers are hinged from the back and snaps in, in the front. You may have to use a flat screwdriver and carefully pry up on each front corner to get it to "un-snap". Once the top is lifted, you will have access to the front panel which usually has screws that attach it to the sides. The drum will have a narrow belt on it towards the rear. You will have to "work" the belt off and the drum basically just sits on rollers.
