Sounds like a broken drive belt.. pretty easy replacement. check youtube.com, repairclinic.com, or appliancepartspros.com for videos to show you how.

SOURCE: dryer making loud clunking noise

Make sure the drum is not catching the back panel, and that the fan is not loose on the motor.

Have you checked the belt? That's generally the problem when a dryer stops spinning.

check for a broken drive belt for the drum
the clunk may have been from the belt as it broke and hit the cabinet

Clunking banging noise


It may be something stuck in the drum, ie a bra wire, which would have extra weight on it whilst the clothes are wet. If this is the case, it will need looking at sooner, rather than later, as it will just be causing further internal damage

If you turn the transmission pulley one way it will agitate the other it will get hard raise up to release the brake and then turn the transmission and the inner drum. If you cannot turn the drum then I would check to see if a nail has gone through one of the holes in the bottom of the drum or a piece of clothing has jammed between the top of the drum and the top cap of the outer tub.

Replaced broken washer belt, but drum still won't spin.


you may have a bad bearing in a pulley,could be motor coupling. Take belt off and spin motor shaft and pulley both ways if it's free, then its more than likely not the motor. Now spin the drum with belt off and see if it does the same as with the belt on if it does it has to be a bad bearing or coupling to the drum. hope this helps

Kenmore oasis washer


top loaders use the same motor for wash pump and spin to spin the clothes the motor direction is reversed and a solenoid releases the drum brake allowing the drum to rotate this is governed by a set of clutch shoes in the pulley if these are worn then the machine wont spin at full speed but ol on the display indicates overload so check the solenoid is releasing the drum usually heard as a loud clunk on spin start
