Question about Dryers
My dryer is working, but it is making a thumping noise. We replaced the rollers but it is still happening
You might want to check the idler wheel that takes up the slack in your drive belt. Sometimes the bearings go bad in the wheel and can cause noises.

Reach inside the drum and feel the drum inserts to see if one of those has come loose. Sometimes you can have one of those screws back out and hit something on the inside. Could also be a bent drum (doubtful unless its been overloaded or abused real bad) a front slide is bad (would probably cause squeeking or grinding noise) or rear bering (also should squeek or grind). Good Luck!!! Jim

You are reminded, this is a SELF HELP web site. You are supposed to encourage people with you knowledge of how to repair appliances. Not to discourage them and tell them to call a repairman. The whole point of this forum is to AVOID a service call and NOT to promote your repair service. Give you a good rating for what? Stop begging for ratings and start actually helping!

Take off the back panel of the dryer and look at the motor and belt turning the drum. There may be something caught on the drum and is pinned in place causing the noise. The motor could be loose on the platform and needs to be tightened. It is probably something physical and seen causing the noise.

Check the 4 feet & make sure top of of appliance is level. These 4 feet will have threaded adjustments, just tilt the dryer back and should be able to turn with your hand or may require pliers, good luck.

Some things to check.
Worn rear drum rollers, idler pulley, or drum front slide kit.
