How do i take apart the my dryer


Sounds like a drum roller bearing. When they go bad they form a flat spot and that against the drum will give a loud thump. Turn the drum by hand and you should feel the flat spot. You may have to remove the back panel to get a good look see and a repair access. Good luck.

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.

Lg Gas dryer Dlg0332w drum making noise


The drum on my DLG0332W was also making noise at the back of the dryer...kind of a thump thump thump as the drum rotated. My dryer is only 4 years old. I got brave, downloaded the service manual and opened up the dryer. I found that the drum's welded seam was starting to separate where the roller wheels were coming into contact with the drum at the back of the dryer. Looks like a new drum is in order.

Loud thumping noise


IT COULD BE THE DRUM BUT I WOULD INSPECT THE DRUM ROLLERS TO SEE IF ONE HAS A FLAT SPOT IN IT. IT MIGHT NOT HURT TO CHECK THE DRUM BAFFLES/PADDLES TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE TIGHT.

Dryer is making loud thumping noise.


Take off the back panel of the dryer and look at the motor and belt turning the drum. There may be something caught on the drum and is pinned in place causing the noise. The motor could be loose on the platform and needs to be tightened. It is probably something physical and seen causing the noise.

Thumping noise in atlantis dryer after drying heavy mattress pad


Have you husband do a visual inspection of the drum and literally feel it to see if anything is caught or stuck on the drum. The motor also may have something caught in it as well. This would be the motor that turns the drum.
