I have a thumping sound in my dryer we put in new belt and wheels what can it be?


what's the brand name and model number?when it spins if you hear a thump thump as it spins that could just be the drum where the rollers hit it,i've heard that alot of times in dryers,i wouldn't worry about it,if it heats and spins and it doesn't sound like metal on metal or not making a real loud noise it's most likely just the drum,could be a little out of round and when the rollers ride on it you hear thump thump then when it spins you hear it again it will be fine,look at the drum,you might see some black stuff on it where the rollers ride on it,you can try cleaning it up it might help but i wouldn't worry about it.

Has a thump thump noise as the drum goes around, no problem drying, just thumps.


The belt might be about to break. Check that. Sometimes it may split and still operate but the dangling piece of belt will hit something inside an make the noise.

Dryer makes thumping noises, starts then stops sporadically


If there is nothing in the dryer that could be causing the thumping, then it could be the main bearing going. Check for a wobble in the drum when it is spinning. If there is a wobble, that is the most likely cause. The thumping is caused when the bearing hits a bad place in it allowing the drum to hit other items internally.

My dryer makes a thump thump sound


  1. Thoroughly check the inside of the dryer for any foreign objects with hard surfaces. Sometimes items that fall out of pockets become stuck inside a dryer and make thumping noises.
  2. Check for level
  3. Make sure the dryer is level. A dryer that is out of level may not rotate properly. Banging or thumping noises from unleveled dryers are common, particularly if the dryer is resting against another metal object such as a washer.
  4. Check rollers
  5. If the thumping noises are present only for the first few minutes of the drying cycle the likely culprit is rollers. If the rollers are warped they will need to be replaced and a professional should be called in to help

Frigidaire was tub makes loud thump noise during spin cycle....


Need more information to make an accurate diagnosis, try removing the front panel (two screws at bottom) and visually check first the belt (all the way around) and then the springs that hold the tub suspended.
I would bet on the belt.
