I had called the repairman for this problem and was told that this is normal. The heavy drum makes a flat spot on the roller while it is stopped. The flat spot makes the sound when it starts but stops making the sound after the flat spot goes away after rolling around a bit. Have not had a problem with the rollers for the last 7 years. It makes the sound for the first 30 sec or so, then goes away. If you have this sound all the time, you may have a defect on the roller.

This is probably your drum rollers going out. While you are replacing the rollers, I recommend you also replace the belt and also blow all the lint out of your dryer while you are inside the unit. This will prolong the life of your dryer as well as prevent a potential fire from lint getting caught on fire. Call us for your parts and we will be sure to get the right ones for you. We need the brand and model number off your dryer. Ella :>)

Hi dave hemming.
I do not believe it is a bearing that is causing your thumping noise
*****************************************************************************
No...you do not need a new drum...all you need is new drum rollers
You probably have a flat spot on one of the rollers, it will make the thumping sound when the drum rotates.
Go to the following webpage and get your drum rollers and install them and that should take care of the noise you are hearing

My dryer makes a thump thump sound


  1. Thoroughly check the inside of the dryer for any foreign objects with hard surfaces. Sometimes items that fall out of pockets become stuck inside a dryer and make thumping noises.
  2. Check for level
  3. Make sure the dryer is level. A dryer that is out of level may not rotate properly. Banging or thumping noises from unleveled dryers are common, particularly if the dryer is resting against another metal object such as a washer.
  4. Check rollers
  5. If the thumping noises are present only for the first few minutes of the drying cycle the likely culprit is rollers. If the rollers are warped they will need to be replaced and a professional should be called in to help

Thumping sound


Most likely the rear drum support has worn and dropped down.
Remove the drum and replace the rear ball and cup drum support.
