SOURCE: dryer makes a thumping noise when drum is turning

Sounds like you have flat spots on your drum rollers.
If your machine is a front loader, remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt, and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check the rollers to see if they have flat spots on them, if they do replace them with new ones. This should solve your thumping noise.
If the rollers do not have flat spots on them then you can try to lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil.
I hope this helps

sound like there might be a delay setting that may have got switched on by accident. Call or email the company that made it and ask for the tech department they may be able to tell you if you need a service call.

Fridgidare dryer model GLGQ2152ES3 runs but does not heat how do I get inside front or back to check the ignitor. It doesnt light (i think)


ok, you can remove the small screws below the kick panel below the door on the front. that will gain you viewing space to watch and see if the ignitor is even glowing, if it is then you most likely need gas valve coils, or to turn on the gas.
if the ignitor is not glowing at all you will need to do some testing on the safetys and thermostats within the dryer. they are all closed at rest so you should have continuity through them. there is the operating stat on the air duct blower housing in the front of the dryer. there is also a hi limit that is on the rear housing of the unit that you will need to remove the top of the dryer to view and gain access to..
those dryers have been a pain and the rear hi limit is especially susceptible to poor venting practices so very common today, and the higher operating temps caused by the poor venting..
best of luck..

My dryer will not start. When I push the star button everything lights up but it will not start. It is a fridgidare and about 6 years old. It is an energy efficient Fridgidare.


Open the door, push in the door switch, press the start button and rotate the tub with your hand. If it starts running you have a bad motor. BE CAREFUL and this is obviously easier with 2 people but is possible with 1. Thanks for rating me after you view this.

Whirlpool gas dryer motor wont turn over


If the drum is not turning, then the belt may have broken and could be (because of the noise I think your describing, partially wrapped around the motor pulley.

Modern gas dryers do not have standing pilot lights. They are electronic ignition.

Chances are, you solve the belt problem, you'll solve the (I guess your having) heat problem.

Please respond with more detail of the problems you are having, and advise if the belt is broken.
