Re: noise from dryer

I have a new LG gas dryer. When the drum is turning the sound is very loud like a rumble. I checked and it is level side to side,front to back.

SOURCE: Making an electrical noise, but drum not turning. Sounds like it's shorting.

I'd suggest - remove the top cover. Switch on. Push the drum around - see if the drum picks up speed and continues to run. If this happens, it means that the motor Starter capacitor has gone dud and will need replacing. Note- If the drum doesn't continue to rotate after you shove it, switch off immediately. It will likely then be a faulty motor.

Drum makes loud banging noise.

Maybe the heat in your dryer over time has melted weak glue and loose components are hitting against the drum

Dryer makes loud humming noise but drum doesn't turn when I push start.

Check to see if the drum will turn by hand. If so, leave the door open but push the light switch button down and start the unit. Once you hear the humming sound, manually turn the drum with your hand to start. If the drum turns normally, you have a bad motor and needs to be replaced. If the drum does not turn, something is jamming the motor and needs to be disassembled and inspected.
Good luck

When I turn on the dryer you can hear a drag and turns loudly

Sounds like you may have a sock or something stuck between the drum and the front felt seal...or maybe your drum roller needs lubrication or replacement.
If you have a front loading machine you would normally pull the front of the machine off, that will expose the drum and seal, if you remove the drum, then that will expose the rollers.
Lube the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as
3 in One oil.
I hope this helps

Dryer is making loud thumping noise.

Take off the back panel of the dryer and look at the motor and belt turning the drum. There may be something caught on the drum and is pinned in place causing the noise. The motor could be loose on the platform and needs to be tightened. It is probably something physical and seen causing the noise.
