SOURCE: ASKO t700 dryer thumping sound

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!

SOURCE: my new dryer thumps every revolution

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.

Maytag dryer


If this is the metal drum model of Maytag dryer, then the drum is likely out of round and will be evidenced by a broken spot weld on the seam where the drum is welded. I have had to replace mine for that very issue. Not cheap! Hope that is not the case for yours, but just rotate the drum by hand and you will see a high and low spot during the rotation. If the high and low spots are consistent, you know your drum is out of round and likely has busted spot welds. You can run it like that for a while if you can stand the thumping. If no out of round condition, then check the roller alignment and see if the bracket got tweaked not allowing it to rest on the drum. Again...if it touche s the drum and then leaves the drum as the drum is rotate by hand, the drum is out of round. Hope this helps

Dryer thumps on every rotation of the drum


Inspect the weld seam in the drum. Mine split in the front leaving a small hole. The thumping is the drum wheels running over the broken seam.

The drum baffle screw has unscrewed itself and the head is thumping against the inside top panel. Pull door, lift lid, rotate drum to find screw sticking out and tighten.

Thumping/Screeching sound, MD:LDE8616ACE. Rollers? Idler Pulley?


Your description sounds like one or both of the rear drum supports (rollers) is bad. A quiet thumping is almost always present as the weld in the drum comes in contact with the drum supports. A binding support will squeal, and the thumping could be worse at that time. After running the dryer until the noises are present, once disassembled, you can tell if a support is bunding or rolling normally by spinning it by hand. The same goes for the idler pulley. Make sure power is disconnected from the unit befor attempting any repairs.

While the unit is disassembled for repair, make sure your your old cat is not inside.

Loud thumping noise


IT COULD BE THE DRUM BUT I WOULD INSPECT THE DRUM ROLLERS TO SEE IF ONE HAS A FLAT SPOT IN IT. IT MIGHT NOT HURT TO CHECK THE DRUM BAFFLES/PADDLES TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE TIGHT.

My new dryer is makeing thumping noises when its runningsounds likr a pair of shoes are in it


Depending upon the model the drum rests on a set of rollers or glode strips. If the drum has a flat spot or overly large seam then it will thump. If the thump is about once a second.

I have seen this a number of times on the Performa line. The drum needed to be replaced to correct it.

Alternately if there is a flat spot on a roller it will sound faster than once a second.

This is usually covered under a manufacturers warranty.
