SOURCE: Loud klunck and scrape sound in one place when

The scraping noise is coming from the drum rolling on the metal frame, your front seal is probably worn out.
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
Note: This method works with most front loading machines.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Note: Some tops hinge and tilt backwards so they do not have to be removed and the electrical console with stay with the lid.
Also remove the lint filter and the screws holding the lint filter housing in place.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.Now is a good time to replace the front felt seal on the drum if it needs to be replaced. Be sure to use a good grade of weatherproof cement on the seal to glue it to the drum, sometimes the glue is furnished with the seal.
Now is also a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots they will make a thumping type of noise or if there is too much wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3inOne oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

What is making mywhirlpool/admiral electric dryer sound loud and thumping noise

You dryer belt may be shot and a piece of rubber is missing making it jump while working. Needs replacing before it completely quits. It will eventually just break apart.

Ewf1087- loose rear flywheel-belt wont stay on.

Check your wash tub bearings first. From the front, grab the stainless wash tub, and see if you can lift it up and down. Imagine it was a wheel on your car - if you could wobble the wheel about and it wasn't solid, the wheel bearing would be gone - same with your washer.
If machine is getting near 6 years old - probably best to replace it. Bearing repairs are never easy or cheap.You won't have a machine that is as good as new after - you will have a worn out machine with a few new bits in. A loose flywheel means the shaft / fixing point is worn - the wheel will be too. They are usually fixed with a star point TORX bolt, that is locktighted on in the factory. It should never come loose - unless you have major problems.

Whirlpool washer making loud noise when spinning

It sounds like you need a bearing job. The bearings in the back half of the wash tub go bad. and the washer gets loud .It's an expensive repair. I hope this helps

The dryer is making a loud noise. Think its the

the belt that spins the dryers drum around has a belt tensioner located at the botton base of the body. If the roller bearing goes bad the sound you hear is caused by that. Replace the belt as well when replacing the roller or the whole tensioner if needed

Lots of klunking noise when drum tuns, otherwise works great

klunking noise
ok this could be a sticky idler pully,
it locks up for a second then skips
or it could be one of your back rollers
has a bad bearing
you can check this by holding the door switch closed
if its the idler, you will see the tub jump when the belt catches up
if its the roller, you will hear it in the back

Can you push the drum up and down. If so then the main bearing has gone bad and needs to be replaced. This is the only metal on metal rubbing you will get unless the machine is off balanced. This is caused usually by doing to heavy of loads and wearing out the bearing

A slipping sound then a continued loud thumping noise

This could very well be the guide rollers in back of the cabinet. They will do this if there is considerable wear. They probably need to be replaced.

Remove motor

what i will do first is change your rear bearing obviously it is worn out leaning downward putting unnecessary strain on motor..

if you notice it is motor too which is rarely the problem, take the drum out, disconnect wires to motor, remove clips holding motor.
