LG DLE5977W THUMP DRUM WAS CRACKED-REPLACED FROM APP.PARTS.COM NEW DRUM OUT OF ROUND.SENT NEW DRUM SAME THUMP.REPLACED ONE ROLLER I SAW WAS BAD-SAME THUMP.REPLACED OTHER THREE ROLLERS-SAME THUMP.HELP


Anything is possible but I doubt 2 drums are bad. Since you replaced all the rollers and I assume you installed the drum on the rollers properly, i would look at the other drive parts. It might be a bad idler pulley and bearing. That is the small pulley that is spring loaded and puts tension on the belt. Check the complete assembly for any unusual free play that might cause a thump. Also look at the belt itself for any cracks or bumps.

LG DLE5977W electric dryer hums when attempting to restart


This is usually the motor but not always. Remove the belt. Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing. Manually rotate the shaft of the motor.
If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor. If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers, pulley, rear bearing, then reassemble the dryer and try it again. If the motor hums but doesn't rotate on its own even with the belt removed--yet you can turn it freely by hand--you usually need to replace the motor or the motor start capacitor.

Clothes dryer makes a ''thumping'' sound


One of your rollers has a flat spot in it or something stuck to it. Every time it rolls round to that spot the drum jumps over the little speed bump in the road. The wheel needs to be replaced.

Thumping sound from loose drum


Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine, Unplug 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.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve you noise problem.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps
