usually whin you get one thump (or a quick double thump) you have a dent in the roller surface of the drum itself. Easiest way to check this is to unplug the unit and take the top off by removing the 3 torx screws in the rear, then lifting the top off. Once the top is off look at the very front edge of the drum as you rotate the whole thing by hand. If you see any irregularities on the surface, thats your problem. If you see nothing it could be a bad motor or roller, but its unlikely if its happening in the same place on the rotation evry time. What has usually happened with dents in the surface of the drum is that the unit was set down too hard (or dropped) and the wheels it rests on dented the metal they ride on. If thats the case the only solution is to replace the drum or live with it .Good Luck!

ALL service is perfromed from the FRONT. Shock Hazard Warning! Open the dryer door aand remove the screws that hold the door hinges, remove the door, and on the opposite side that have just 2 screws where the door would attach if it was converted to the oppsite opening direction, and remove the front panel. Remove the front bulkhead,(the internal drum opening panel), by removing the 4-5/16" screws that hold it to the outer side panels. Reach back to the rear of the motor and release the tension on the idler and drum belt. Remove the belt and lift drum slightly upward and remove from the unit. You should then observe 2 rollers about 3" in diameter positioned at about 5 and 7 o'clock. The roller at the 5 o'clock position is most likely bound up or not free-rolling. TRU-ARC spring clips,(you may need to purchase), retain the rollers on the shaft and need to be carefully removed and saved for reaasembly. Inspect roller at 7 o'clock for free operation. Purchase what you need and reassemble.
Hope this helps!

Flat spots on the support rollers from sitting in storage will make a thump. So will heavy wet clothes if they are not spun dry enough from the washer. This may lessen as the unit is used but since it is in warranty a service call to rule out major problems is in order.
