    When I start the dryer, I immediately hear a banging noise and it continues throughout the cycle. The sound seems to be coming from the back in the top left corner. It works fine but is very noisy

    I have the same problem. At first, I though there was something hitting inside the dryer, like a snap or button, or mayber there was a coin in the dryer. But the dryer makes the same noise with nothing in it. It does sound like it's coming from the back of the dryer. Would love to know what it's all about.

    Interestingly enough, about a week after I posted my message about the
    banging noise, it suddenly stopped. I had scheduled an appointment with
    a repairman for later in the week, so I'm glad it stopped before he
    made the house call. I haven't heard a noise since.

You may have had a foreign object slip under a loose drum baffle. Manually rotate the drum to locate wwhich baffle it is in.

I had a year old Maytag Neptune dryer that began making banging noises like there were rocks in it. When I looked, I noticed a crack in the seam of the drum. It had cracked, and when the drum spun around, it was spinning unevenly, causing the banging noises. Luckily my husband bought the extended warranty, and Maytag wound up replacing the entire drum. Now it works beautifully. You may want to check for any cracks. The drum is one piece of metal, welded together at the ends.

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..

Hi,

Check all exposed screws, and make sure they are tight. Loose cabinet screws may cause a banging sound. Make sure nothing is loose inside the drum. Remove the lint trap and look below the lint trap holder for any loose items that may have slipped through the cracks.
Check to see if the drum is supported on wheels or rollers. Sometimes these can wear and require replacement.

Good luck and have a nice day

Dryer makes banging noise


basscat, you first remove the door by removing the screws from the hinges. The door will lift up a litte and pull off. Next remove the spacers on the other side. Now the front panel will pull out from the top. There will be two 1/4 inch screws with latches on each side of the frame, remove these and the top will lift up. Now by holding the door switch and starting the dryer, you will be able to see what is banging. Once you determine that, you can remove the bulk-head, should be 4 screws, be sure to unplug the door switch. Unfasten the belt, remember the configuration and remove the drum. You are now able to get at the insides. Catriver..post back.
