What do we do to address thumping noise in Kenmore Elite HE4 Dryer?


It is probably one of the idler wheels it rotates on. Look for a flat spot and if you didn't replace the drum your self ask for your money back.

Kenmore 80 Series dryer's drum is making a thump


I would check all the screw's to make certain they are tight. That was my problem when mine was making noise. Look on the interior of the drum.

Dryer makes banging sound as drum rotates


The drum rollers are worn out and wobble when moving..it should be more of a thump/thump sound, unless really are almost gone...UNPLUG dryer and raise top...Since no model. i'm going with standard kenmore/whirlpool dryer type. The top has two screws by lint filter..Remove these and raise top...The front can be removed by removing two screws inside each front corner. The door switch must be disconnected at wiring..Remove front and set aside...The drum can be removed after the belt comes off...look down in right rear corner under drum..you will see the belt pulley and you want to see how it goes around pulley to help reinstall..remove belt, there will be tension and make sure you draw yourself a diagram of path of belt to ease install of belt....now once belt is removed, you can pull out drum...there are two drum rollers. They are bad if you roll them and they wobble and make noise. They should be almost quiet when you roll them if they are good..the belt roller can be bad and squeek...check this as well...replace parts and reinstall

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?

Kenmore electric dryer making loud noise when running


It sounds like the belt that goes around the drum. I have a similar Kenmore, and I get that same rotational thumping noise. The belt is probably about to break or come apart. If you take it off and run it trough your hands, I think that you'll find either belt separation, or a bad spot missing a chunk.
Fortunately the belt is a cheap item. I've kept my Kenmore dryer running over 20 years now.

Maytag dryer make very loud 'tumbling', thumping noise but the drum isn't turning. We just replaced the belt and all the wheels and pully's 'appear' to be in good shape. Help.


If you just replaced all that then maybe you dont have the drum put back in there correctly. alternately sometimes the fins on the inside of the drum are not tight and shift and make noise as the drum turns. You tighten those on the outside of the drum. Make sure you put the belt on right.The blower wheel may have worked itself loose. Make sure the belt is on right and the drum was not put back in backwards. Check that, if the other doesnt work. Last but not least I have seen on some Maytag brands the seam on the drum was not welded right and it popped opened/no longer seamed togerther...check that as well.

Makes squeaking noise after running for about 10 minutes


there are 2 drum rollers at the back of the dryer. shut off power, pull drum and you will see 2 rubber wheels. there is a little plastis triangle that keeps the roller in place. try spinning the rollers . they probably will not spin too freely. remove triangles ,inspect inside of roller the stainless steel bearing may have gunk on it try to clean off . also check shaft roller rides likewise remove any debri use a little rubbing alcohol to remove gunk. also check the idler roller that routes the belt for the same things. good luck
