Question about LG DLG5988 Stainless Steel Gas Dryer
The clunking noise may be a broken weld on the drum. Every time it turns and passes through the guide wheel supports, it makes a thunk thunk noise. You will need to have a qualified LG technician diagnose the problem correctly but that's what it sounds like.

Tips for a great answer:
Hi kirst_alers2 - From what you have described it sounds like you either have a problem with the belt, front (and/or rear) bearing, or a loose connection with the motor or drum. Lint or something else clogging the vent could be causing the dryer to take a longer time to dry the clothing. If the dryer is taking too long to dry then the issue may lie with a faulty sensor. I recommend contacting a professional to accurately diagnose the issue, the part(s) may have to be replaced depending if they are worn, damaged or loose. You can often locate a qualified tech through the manufacturer website.
