Dryer making a squishing sound

I had put some sneakers into the dryer and realized by the banging around that they should not be in there, now the dryer is making a squishing sound, but appears to be working perfectly. Did I do damage, can I fix it or just live with it?

SOURCE: noisy drum

You may have a rear drum support issue. There are 2 rollers,(supports), 1 at 4 o'clock and 1 at 7 o'clock. If the bushing in the roller becomes elongated,(elliptical), it will give a thumping noise, as you describe.
Below is a link with exploded diagrams and parts help.

How to assemble belt


Hello Denise, I have seen this problem many times. The sneakers by themselves in the dryer cause a shock effect , when the weight of the sneakers tumbling onto the drum overloads the skinny belt and the belt breaks every time. Usually. if you dry the sneakers along with other clothes or towels this will not happen.

My Maytag LSG7800AAW makes a loud noise at start up that sounds like sneakers in the dryer, but there are no sneaker in the dryer. Could it be the rollers or belts?


Probably the rollers have failed and is causing the felt to misalign the drum. The front skid plates are also a possibility. Before you take this apart make sure your local supplier has the parts you need to put it back together. If you are going to order online the cheaper parts are the felt and skid pats and most likely the problem causers
