Dryer Drum Seems Unbalanced

The dryer seems to have a thumping sound like there is something in it but nothing is. Is there a balancing that I might be able to fix?

Re: Dryer Drum Seems Unbalanced

David...sounds like a bad belt. You will have to remove and install a new one. It could be a bearing...but I doubt it. The issue the guest describes...I don't understand it.

Maytag dryer (LDE5914ACE) loud slipping/thumping sound

yes, it's called a blower wheel... it is what blows the air into the dryer to blow out the humidity through the vent... it has a D fitting and as you use it, the D rounds out and the 'squirrel cage' stops spinning and begins to slip... if you continue to use the dryer without replacing this, you could burn up your dryer motor... it will just over heat....

Dryer is making a loud banging noise.

there are bushings or rollers at the front of the drum that do wear out this will cause the thumping as it turns. A local appliance repair place may be able to source out new guides for you.

you have a worn belt tensioner pulley that needs to be replaced. replace the belt as well for it will be worn from the bad pulley. the inner bearing has locked causing the roller to seize up receiving a flat spot on the roller making this drum thump

Belt and drum turns but with a thumping sound.

check the idler pulley, it could be broken. Also check the inner side of the belt for a chunk missing.

Dryer has thumping noise.

Yes that is what most likely is the problem to begin with. The drum usually never goes out of round . Replace bearing best choice

Dryer is making loud thumping noise.

Take off the back panel of the dryer and look at the motor and belt turning the drum. There may be something caught on the drum and is pinned in place causing the noise. The motor could be loose on the platform and needs to be tightened. It is probably something physical and seen causing the noise.
