Question about LG DLE2514 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

LG ELECTRIC DRYER

DRYER MAKES TUMBLING NOISE AS THE DRUM REVOLVES. THE NOISE IS VERY SIMILAR TO THE NOISE GENERATED WHEN DRYING A PAIR OF TENNIS SHOES. AS THE DRUM REVOLVES ONE COMPLETE REVOLUTION, IT MAKES ONE THUMPING NOISE.
YOUR HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED

    Look for cracks in the drum itself, mine has made that noise for a while and I just found that the drum is cracking more and more snagging my cloths in the mean time. This is a defect in the drum for sure.

    I have the same issue with our LG DLE3777 dryer. It started thumping and continued to get worse with use. What I found was that the VERY thin metal drum started to crack in the welded seam in the very rear of the dryer drum. Mine is right behind one of the baffles and the crack is now a little over an inch (~3 cm) long. The raised section of the back of the drum is where 2 support rollers run. If I turn the drum by hand I can see the metal separate or flex at the crack when it goes over the bottom most roller in about the 6 o'clock position.

    Since my 3 year old dryer is still under extended warranty the repair shop has a new drum and rollers on order now. Don't know how long that will take, but this is looking like it may be a more common issue than it should be. That's just my personal thought which is free.

    Thumping on each rotation. One rotation, one low thump. Drying clothes well and no other problems.

    The dryer was making a rattling noise. My husband removed the exhaust pipe which seemed to be the problem. However he spun the drum and the belt fell off in the back. How do we put it back on?

Henry, its going to be 1 of 2 things. Check inside your drum, see if the vent in the rear has burning or discoloration around it. If it does, it sounds as if your vent is restricted causing the unit to overheat, so clean/fix/replace the venting and your support pulleys will need to be repalce ie flat spots from overheat. If there is no scoarching marks and you know its not the vent or heat issue, the drum seam may have parted causing the thump as every revolution is made.

Very loud noise like tennis shoes drying


Check for a possible cracked weld in the seam of the stainless steel drum. Noise most likely is the crack passing over the front or rear rollers each revolution.

My dryer (maytag atlantis) has started making a loud clunking noise with each revolution. its still drying fine but sounds terrible. any thoughts?


A loose belt will allow the drum to slip when clothes hit the paddles in the drum. It sometimes sounds like a pair of tennis shoes are in the dryer when it slips and is usually rythymic.

These machines also use drum rollers that can make a racket when they go bad.

This started recently, my dryer makes a loud noise while it's drying. It sounds like tennis shoes are in there drying.


There are usually 3 rollers that the drum rides on as it spins. Sounds like one or more of the rollers has worn out

Dryer drum stopped rotating, dryer blower continues to work.


The belt probably broke, and coincidentally happened while drying the shoes. The belt is easy to replace. Open the back and you'll probably see the belt laying on the bottom
