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.

The dryer is making a thump/thud noise as the drum turns. The dryer works fine but the noise sounds like something hitting everytime the drum goes around. Could this be the belt going out?

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.

Clothes dryer makes a ''thumping'' sound


One of your rollers has a flat spot in it or something stuck to it. Every time it rolls round to that spot the drum jumps over the little speed bump in the road. The wheel needs to be replaced.

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 :>)
