My maytag dryer model lde5914acm makes a 'ker-thunk' noise as the drum rotates. It makes the noise approximately every rotation of the drum. It has been getting progressively worse over the last 10 loads....

First off I would suggest a visual inspection of the inside of the drum. Also try to observe it while it is running to see if the drum is off balance. That can happen if a large or awkward load is put in the dryer. If that doesn't yield any results then it may be time to check things out inside the machine. I would strongly recommend disconnecting power from the unit, especially if you are unsure of what you are doing. It just isn't worth the risk. Look for anything that seems wrong or out of place. Aside from that, I can't be of too much help without being there.

Makes a thunking noise with every rotation. sounds like a gear is messed up somehow. The beater hesitates as it goes through its rotation.

It probably is .. The most common cause is something got stuck in the beaters and some gear teeth got damaged.. They are very easy to replace but can be a little messy because of the grease on the gears. If you tell me your make and model I will tell you what parts you probably need

97 dodge intrepid. motor is thunking when its running and in gear

Sounds like you already know what is wrong with it. It most likely needs a motor, or a rebuild.

Clunking noise

The clunking noise may be a broken weld on the drum.  Every time it turns and passes through the guide wheel supports, it makes a thunk thunk noise.  You will need to have a qualified LG technician diagnose the problem correctly but that's what it sounds like.
