The manual referenced below should help you.
Your rear drum support or belt tension roller will be your problem.

    Copy and paste the link I provided for your dryer repair.
    The information given by emmissiowiz does not apply to your dryer.
    Your dryer has a drum bushing/bearing support.
    It does not have drum rollers.

    I AM SORRY BUT THESE INSTRUCTIONS ARE BETTER SUITED TO YOUR DRYER, THE DRUM MUST COME OUT TO SERVICE THE ROLLERS, SO THIS IS LIKELY THE BETTER PROCEDURE, BOTH WILL HELP GET THE JOB DONE, THE APRTS ARE CHEAP ABOUT $30 ON LINE.

How do I stop light thumping noise?


For the fun of it I would pull the drum out of it and examin the bearing the drum rides on. Now some of these have a regular type wheel bearing type, and others have these wide plastic that the drum just rides on. But they are not that hard to take apart and put back together. Just need some practice.

It is makeing a lot of noise


Hello. You didn't provide a brand/model number or the type of noise the unit is making. If the dryer is making a screeching noise, it's probably the idler pulley(spring-loaded tensioner pulley that keeps the drum belt tight so the electric motor can turn the drum properly) being worn out or binding up due to lint build-up in the dryer. However, if the dryer is "thumping" loudly, most likely it's a worn out support roller either on the front or rear bulkhead. They're made of hard rubber and can become malformed due to wear/age causing a rough movement of the drum as it spins.

Heard a thumping noise everytime we turned dryer on...lasted a week or so.....drying a blanket last night cycle stopped half way thru.....still getting hot, just not turning. Thinking this is some type of...


The thumping noise comes when the drum is rubbing against the body surface. This could be due to the suspenders/support which is holding the drier drum are not steadfast. May be one has given the way. To know exactly if it is the belt or the coupling with motor or the support for drum , you have to open the back cover which you can do it by removing the screws at the back and then inspecting the machine.

Frigidaire dryer feq221cas2 the startswitch will not stay on


The switch is bad and need to be replaced. Holding the switch in the on position may cause it to burn, thus causing a fire so please do not hold it in manually.

LG DLE3777W dryer thumps when running . It sounds like there are tennis shoes in the drum.


Probable cause is the bearing on the wheel that turns the drum is worn out. They are easy to replace and should cost less than $25. for the part.
Remove the front of the dryer and turn the drum by hand, you should be able to tell which side is worn.
Be sure and unplug first.
