Does the sound get quieter as it heats up ? if so its likely a drum support (roller) kind of like a roller skate wheel. If sound dosent change after running a while hot you may have a actual drum issue

Dryer makes a "thumping" sound even when it is running and clothes are not in it. Sounds like a pair of shoes are in there being dried.

do you hear like a click noise, it may have tripped your overload switch, it is located on the motor on the inside of the dryer. You will need to pull the front panel off and investigate. the screws on the inside of the door, pry up on the top corners, remove panel carefully as the door switch is connected to it, lift top lid back 90 degrees, look at belt, should be centered on drum and should be able to rotate drum with some resistance. there are two switches on the motor on resets the other trips, the rest will click when reset. Good Luck Tim

My LG Dryer (DLE9677SM) is making a continuous thumping sound throughout the cycle. Sounds like shoes in the dryer. Drum seems like it has excessive play in it...I can move it around from side to side.


you have a worn belt tensioner pulley that needs to be replaced. replace the belt as well for it will be worn from the bad pulley. the inner bearing has locked causing the roller to seize up receiving a flat spot on the roller making this drum thump

Loud thumping sound


It's probably time for new drum support rollers. There are two rollers the drum rides on and their bearings can fail, which makes them noisy and also makes the drum wobbly while it turns. Replacing the rollers isn't difficult, and you can do it yourself if you feel comfortable working with hand tools and are patient.

Here's a good site with information on belt replacement and other repair tips, and a source for parts:

The drum is probably hitting the housing or internal structure because of a failed bearing.

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.
