Open the door and if u can lift the drum up or down more than an inch the drum bearings are worn out. big job to repair unless under warranty.

Dryer makes loud noise during drying cycle. Drying is fine otherwise.


Bearings in the drum rollers going bad or something caught in felt area of drum. Need to take dryer apart to figure which it is.

Makes a horrible noise. Seems to dry fine but before its done it sound like it going to explode.


The blower wheel may be stripped out or broken.
This will cause a loud rumble noise while operating.

a bearing in the back for your drum sounds like what you describe. It needs to be taken apart and the bearing lubricated with high temp grease

Electric dryer makes a rumbling when tumbler is turning.


Check the drum bearing, a load noise, and often spinning problems are symptoms of a bad drum bearing.The bearing is at the base of the drum and accessing it is not easy.

You can find diagrams and replacement parts entering model number here.

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.
