A drum support wheel bearing could need lubrication or be replaced.  Also some drum support wheels have a rubber coating that wears off causing misalignment and noise.  Possibly drum gasket (sometimes felt material) where drum meets rear panel is worn allowing metal-to-metal contact--should be replaced.

My Atlantis dryer makes a clunking sound when running. It seems as though it happens when the same spot on the drum passes a certain spot on the left side of the dryer.

MAYTAG PERFORMA ELECTRIC DRYER SQUEEKS BADLY WHEN RUNNING. METAL ON METAL. DRUM IS WORN


If the metal-on-metal squeak is coming from the front of the machine, you need to replace the glides. These are plastic pads that support the front of the drum around the door. The rim of the drum slides over them, and they eventually wear through.

My dryer squeeks when running


Hi, I've had a similar problem (I think) on my MDG7400 dryer. There was a cyclical squeak, metal against metal. It turned out to be the screw that holds the drum paddle to the drum. It had worked itself loose and was scraping against the inside wall of the dryer. Remove the front door lift the top, and tighten 'er up. Hope that helps.
