Clunking sound on dryer

I have a Maytag dryer - Model# LP37304ACE that is about 10-11 years old. It started making a "clunking" sound when we start up the dryer. It's very apparent at first, then isn't as bad once the cycle gets going. The dryer is still working. Do you know what is going on? Thanks, LS

Remove the front panel and check the blower wheel attached to the motor.
It may need replacing.
Possibly lint and debris blocking it.

I have a LG front load dryer model# DLE2020W and it is clunking with and without a load. Seam in the drum seems to be fine. It's 3 years old added video with sound


Is the 'clunking' noise new? Or was it always there?

Check manual for Troubleshooting; go to an appliance store and ask the salesperson. I would try YouTube, too.

My dryer (maytag atlantis) has started making a loud clunking noise with each revolution. its still drying fine but sounds terrible. any thoughts?


A loose belt will allow the drum to slip when clothes hit the paddles in the drum. It sometimes sounds like a pair of tennis shoes are in the dryer when it slips and is usually rythymic.

These machines also use drum rollers that can make a racket when they go bad.

Clunking noise, like a tennis shoe, top right rear of dryer


HI sounds to me like your drum support is worn, it would make a thumping sound. You have 2 you should replace them both.

Clunking whirlpool drier


rollers and or felts are cheap,
much cheaper than a new dryer,
and nobody now makes a dryer that will last 25 years.
I have maytags 1972, 1974, kenmore 1968, speed queen 1980,
in each apartment building used by 11 families, to keep them running costs peanuts

new dryers?, - 3 years is all you get before the $$$ starts

Clunking maytag dryer


the machine is opened and inspected from the front
opening from the front there is no heavy lifting or moving of the dryer needed,
the usual causes of a ' cyclic clunk '
a worn spot on a drum felt. when that area reaches the bottom, the weight of the
drum causes a clunk.
a damaged belt that clunks when the tear hits the drum
a collapsing drum roller(replace in pairs)
each is easy to fix, cheap,
