Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
Your problem could be your drum rollers.
If you plan on trying to do the repair yourself, then you will need to unplug the dryer from the electric.
If you have a front loading machine
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley.
Check the idler arm with the pulley, sometimes wear will cause the noise you describe.
While you have the drum out, I would also recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you problem later with the rollers getting noisy.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause noise like a thumping type noise.
You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
I hope this helps

Hey friend, I appreciate your post!
I understand that your Electrolux gas dryer is making a loud vibration noise and is also loud while tumbling. There are several components in your dryer that could be causing this noise. Based off what you are describing it might be an issue with your suspension rollers, motor, or pulley. Since it could be any of these underlying issues I would suggest getting a technician out to diagnosis and repair your dryer. Hope this is helpful. - Matt
