Hello. One of the rollers that the dryer tub rolls on is either shot or loose. The fix is to open up the lid of the dryer, it prys up; and see. Then you can either tighten down that roller or replace it. That is a common part available on line at searsparts.com or at any appliance store. Joe

Please give my answer 4 thumbs up since it is on target and also free to you. Thanks. Joe

When Dryer is on it makes loud banging noises almost like the cylinder is hitting the sides. It also seems to be excessively hot even set on low heat, and has an almost burning smell inside after running.

Dryer is making a loud banging noise.


there are bushings or rollers at the front of the drum that do wear out this will cause the thumping as it turns. A local appliance repair place may be able to source out new guides for you.

Loud banging


Several possibilities for noise. check concrete balance wieghts at top and bottom of washer, make sure they are not loose.
Check drum restraint spring(s) are not broken.
Check suspension legs for wear.
Check for loose motor fixings.
Finally, remove drum belt, and spin drum by hand, tjhere should be noise from bearings, if it feels rough or is rumbling , then main bearings have failed.
Please rate my comments.
Thanks.
