SOURCE: Drum makes a clunking sound when rotating, even when empty

This machine has roller wheels in the front that are not adjustable, but rather need to be replaced if they have a bad spot or something. Usually what I see with a clunking noise(clunks once or maybe two quick clunks in succession) is that the dryer has been set down hard on the ground and has put two dents in the roller surface of the drum. To check this, just unplug it, pop the top off (3 screws in the back and tilt it up) and look at the very front edge of the drum. rotate the drum by hand (carefully so you dont pop off the belt) and look for any imperfections in the suface, such as dents. If you are getting more of a vibration type of noise, I would also suggest taking off the lower front cover then taking of the blower wheel cover located to the left side and checking that there is no lint built up in the blower wheel as well. Good Luck!

Dryer is making a loud clunking sound. Sounds as if the drum is out of sync. Is a new dryer the best option, or fixing it.


If you turn the drum manually and the noise continues, then taking it apart and checking the idler pulley and drum rollers would be a good idea.

If may be the felt seal or the drum rollers are the source of this problem.

Mod 110.67741600 ser mu2020976 dryer drum is makeing a lot of noise


Check the baffles in the dryer drum to see if any are loose. If they are not loose, spin the dryer by hand to see if noise is from inside the drum. Sometimes you will get coins caught in the baffles and all you have to do is loosen the screws, and rotate the drum a little so the coins will fall out. Then tighten the screws up and replace the cabinet. You may also have a bad drum roller inside the machine.
If you could describe the sound to me, I will be able to help you a little more.

The dryer rotates fine but it makes loud clunking sounds as it spins. Sometimes it pauses for a rotation and then starts in again. The belt was replaced recently and the back 2 rollers spin freely. The...


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

Dryer makes a clunking noise while drying. Is it possible that the drum is "Out of balance"?


Most likely if it is a thump thump noise a drum roller has a flat spot and is causing the noise.
The dryer will operate ok but it will be loud.

A service call may be needed to replace all 4 drum rollers.

The dryer (Bosch Nexxt 500) makes a loud grinding noise when rotating. Any idea what this may be?


The noise could be your drum rollers need lubricant or replacement.
When the drum rollers get flat spots on them they will make a bumping/thumping type of noise.
The grinding noise sounds to me like the drum rollers are in need of lubrication.

My dryer is making a loud clunking sound with each rotation. When I look in the drum on the back center of it I see about 6 rivet that seem to be connecting the drum to something in the back. The holes...


It could be that your rollers are wore out and let the drum fall down. If you stick your hands inside of the drum can you lift it up with your hands like maybe the drum is down lower then it should be? And do this while not running of course. lol See if there is any slop in the drum with your hand lifting up and down on the drum. See if you can also pull it forward any.
