What do we do to address thumping noise in Kenmore Elite HE4 Dryer?


It is probably one of the idler wheels it rotates on. Look for a flat spot and if you didn't replace the drum your self ask for your money back.

Hi bojanhadziki...
You could have a couple of problems..
1...The door seal may need replacing, making metal to metal contact
2...The drum rollers may need lubrication or replacement
3...The back bearing may need replacement or lubrication.

Kenmore HE4 dryer is making loud noise, like a shoe is in it. The back bottom roller appears to be very loose. How to tighten?


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them .

Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots
or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably
only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade
of machine oil such as 3 in One oil.
Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

Hi- The bearing(s) might be worn or the drum wheels sticking but if it is not starting sometimes you most likely have a motor issue. You'll need someone to come out and take a look at it.
