Maytag LDE8414RCM, dryer knocks and rumbles while running. Still heats and dries clothes for the moment, but the knocking and rumbling is getting worse. Thanks


That rumbling noise may be due to the fan impeller being loose on its shaft, or because of a worn rear support roller. If the machine is still drying, it may be taking longer than usual but you haven't noticed. This is a good sign it's the fan. There are a number of sites with good detailed procedures for getting at and replacing parts, as well as selling the parts you need (of course they would!). One of them is here:

If this solution gets you on the way to quiet drying, please take a moment to rate it. Thanks for asking here!

Knocking sounds


Ususally knocking is a sign that the rubber belt which spins the dryer tub is old and has hardened. If the knocking sound gets quieter after you have run the dryer for 30 minutes or so, then the belt is the problem. As the dryer turns, it heats up the rubber belt and makes the belt more pliable. This quiets the knock. I have seen dryers work fine for years, knocking the whole time. Have the belt replaced if the sound bothers you.
