My problem was a screw was stuck between the tub and the stationary housing. By simply running your hand along the edge of the tub, you may find something there gausing the grinding noise. Gerard

Is it a high pitch noise. Like a noise that sounds similar to a old freddy cruger movie when the little girl on the tricycle passing by. If it sounds like that, then maybe you idler pully needs to be oiled..the idler pully is what keeps tension on the belt and lets the belt rotate smoothly. just like a pully. That maybe needs to be oiled..try doing that and see that works.

My dryer (maytag atlantis) has started making a loud clunking noise with each revolution. its still drying fine but sounds terrible. any thoughts?


A loose belt will allow the drum to slip when clothes hit the paddles in the drum. It sometimes sounds like a pair of tennis shoes are in the dryer when it slips and is usually rythymic.

These machines also use drum rollers that can make a racket when they go bad.

Dryer noise


A drum support wheel bearing could need lubrication or be replaced.  Also some drum support wheels have a rubber coating that wears off causing misalignment and noise.  Possibly drum gasket (sometimes felt material) where drum meets rear panel is worn allowing metal-to-metal contact--should be replaced.
