There are two rollers that the back of the drum ride on. At times, these rollers wear out and fall off and the drum rides on the back housing or the stem of the roller. You need to pull the front of the dryer off and carefully slide the drum forward (keep the drive belt in place) just enough to expose the rollers... replace if needed.

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..

GE Profile gas dryer tumbles but NO HEAT, not ignitor


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

first the the belt underneath.it may be partially broken, causing the noise. if belt is good, you will need to remove drum to inspect the problem. remove top lid (screws at lint filter too). pop top off and remove front panel screws, unplug switches. drum felt ring may be worn or something stuck in it

DBXR453 GE Electric Dryer - Noisy


I have the same dryer, with the dryer empty open the door and try to push the basket up, if it has lots of play in it then you should check the "bearing drum" which is attached to the front panel. this machine doesnt have bearing on the back of the drum. it rides on plastic sleaves called slide drum. they are on the inside of the front dryer panel. only 4 screws to remove and check
