The drive belt broke and the thumping was caused by a flatten roller on the belt tensioner. Replace the tensioner pulley and the belt to get it running like new again

I ran the dryer without the lint screen inserted. The load was baby clothes. There was a loud thump and the dryer stopped. One sock was found in the side yard under the vent. The drum won't start...

some of the clothing is stuck on blower wheel of the dryer. Look into the openingwhere the lint screen goes. If you can see and reach the clothing from there - you could so it yourself. Otherwise the dryer will have to be disassembled to reach the stuff stuck on the blower wheel. It's a 20min-1hour job, no parts involved (unless the blower wheel is broken, which is very unlikely); google "samsung appliance repair in orange county" and call around to check the rates for this sort of job, they'll likely vary widely.

Good luck,

U have some piece of clothing jamming up the works. Unless you find it and remove it yourself you are looking at a nice expensive repair since the guy is not gonna come out to help you on the cheap.

U have learned a lesson the hard way but one that you will surely never forget! LINT SCREEN MUST BE IN PLACE.

Not drying

Hi. When a dryer takes that long, check the entire length of the vent pipe for a partial clog from lint. Clean out the lint and the dryer should dry in just one cycle. Regarding the thump it most likely is a loose or bad roller. J.

Makes thumping sound on start up,thumps or knocks ocassionally while drying

This is probably your drum rollers going out. While you are replacing the rollers, I recommend you also replace the belt and also blow all the lint out of your dryer while you are inside the unit. This will prolong the life of your dryer as well as prevent a potential fire from lint getting caught on fire. Call us for your parts and we will be sure to get the right ones for you. We need the brand and model number off your dryer. Ella :>)

Dryer will not start.. Here clicking sound when i push start button but nothing happens

Did you clean the lint screen and replace? Also - all lint should be cleaned from back of dryer and the duct...many dryer manufacturer have safety sensors that will not light dryer due to there being too much lint, not enough air flow...(safety feature) ...
