Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
The clunk is from a worn bearing on the belt tensioner that the drums belt goes through. If the bearing freezes up the rubber layered roller will get out of round and sound like a drummer beating on a drum

SOURCE: 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.

Probably the belt has broken.
The technician will gain access to the back of the dryer to replace the belt.
You can find replacement parts and assembling diagrams on website here.

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication. If you have a front loading machine, Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer. Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor. Now is a good time to check the belt condition for wear. Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt. Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them. If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.
