Constant "thumping" sound when dryer is going

I have a Kenmore dryer mocel # 110.66872500. I think it is a 80 series electric dryer. Whenever I turn it on it makes a "thumping" sound. It makes this sound the whole time the dryer is going. Can anyone help me fix this problem?
Thank You,
Jodi

You can fix it by ordering a whirlpool roller kit but its no big deal the drum sits on rubber rollers when it just sits the rolers get flat spots on them like tires and makes the thumping sounds its just noisey but no big deal but they do make a kit with softer rollers

Kenmore electric dryer 70 series - it starts, motor sounds horrible, turns, gets hot, almost a burnt smell. what do i do?


Greetings,
it sounds like its bad...they usually will drag slightly when you push start. in other words, you can hear a delay in it starting...almost a hum, but not always...if its smelling like burnt wiring..it usually cuts off and will not come back on until it cools down..

Are you sure its the motor thats making noise?? if a roller goes bad..it will go thump,thump, thump and they make alot of noise too...does it stop during the cycle? if you have more question, let me know and hope this helps
