If the dryer is making this noise the roller on the belt tensioner has a flat spot causing this to happen. The roller and belt are replaced as a unit. If it is the washer unit the spring has fallen off on one side of the drum which is one of two that balances the drun while spinning

Why is my tumble dryer making a loud banging noise when on its a white knight model CL3A


Most of the time a tumble dryer will work like a dream but, as with all appliances, occasionally there will be technical problems.
If your tumble dryer is making a banging, whining (or other strange noise) it's best to diagnose and sort out the problem. It could be the result of a number of things, but what you certainly don't want to do is ignore it.
Here are the most common reasons for your tumble dryer making odd noises.
Coins and keys
One of the most common reasons for a banging, rattling or clanking is keys or coins left in pockets - so always check them before you put any clothes in the tumble dryer. More often than not you won't hear anything until the dryer cycle is in full spin.
Uneven surfaces
If the dryer is vibrating or shaking during spinning, check to make sure the dryer's sitting on a level surface. If it's fitted with height adjusters on the front legs, adjust them accordingly to ensure the machine is level as this will often reduce or eliminate the banging sound.
Drum bearings
If the tumble dryer is noisy when its turning and the whole appliance is shaking and rumbling, it could be indicative of a problem with the drum bearings, which help the wheels turn freely and easily.
The drum
If the banging noise is continuous when the drum is turning then it might be problem with the drum itself. If the noise is a metallic one, it could be the result of the drum scraping on something inside the machine. You could always check the drum visually for any marks or dents.
Motor bearings
If the tumble dryer is emitting a high-pitched screaming or whining noise it could be a sign that the motor bearings are wearing out.
Tension pulley wheels
If there's a squeaking noise coming from the dryer it could be the result of wear on the tension pulley wheels. This occurs more frequently on older models...or try this link..

Loud clanking noise during spin cycle. Will not


If it is a front loader, then remove the rear panel, remove the belt, and soin drum by hand, if it feels rough, or is noisy and rumbling, then the main drum bearings have failed.
This is a major repair.

Loud banging


Several possibilities for noise. check concrete balance wieghts at top and bottom of washer, make sure they are not loose.
Check drum restraint spring(s) are not broken.
Check suspension legs for wear.
Check for loose motor fixings.
Finally, remove drum belt, and spin drum by hand, tjhere should be noise from bearings, if it feels rough or is rumbling , then main bearings have failed.
Please rate my comments.
Thanks.

Very loud banging noise when spinning


sounds like a balance problem may be when the drum was replaced they didn't fit the new drum in the correct spot the other thing that would cause load banging and excessive vibrations in the machine is if the shockers are worn out,
believe it our not even washing machines have shockers to dampen the movement of the drum spinning

Drum Speed - Unstable


The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn. When these components are worn-they prevent the drum from spinning freely, and usually you hear a loud sound during the spin mode.
