Henry, its going to be 1 of 2 things. Check inside your drum, see if the vent in the rear has burning or discoloration around it. If it does, it sounds as if your vent is restricted causing the unit to overheat, so clean/fix/replace the venting and your support pulleys will need to be repalce ie flat spots from overheat. If there is no scoarching marks and you know its not the vent or heat issue, the drum seam may have parted causing the thump as every revolution is made.

SOURCE: Gas Dryer LDG7304AAE making horribly loud noise while drying

Solution for the Maytag model is most likely to replace the blower wheel. Remove the two screws on the front panel (just a couple inches off the floor) and swing the front panel up to allow you to unhook the top side of the panel from the clips at the very top of the front panel. You do not have to remove the wires, just set the front panel to the side. Blower wheel is at the lower left. The old wheel most likely no longer has a D shaped hole to match the motor shaft, and spins freely. Remove cover. Replace the wheel part number Y303836 for a LDG7304AAE which is held on the shaft with a spring type clamp. Reassemble. Not really very hard to do. On a difficulty scale or 1 - 10, I'd rate it a 3.

SOURCE: Dryer is making loud thumping noise.

Take off the back panel of the dryer and look at the motor and belt turning the drum. There may be something caught on the drum and is pinned in place causing the noise. The motor could be loose on the platform and needs to be tightened. It is probably something physical and seen causing the noise.

SOURCE: My dryer -model FER311F makes a thumping noise while in use.

Check the 4 feet & make sure top of of appliance is level. These 4 feet will have threaded adjustments, just tilt the dryer back and should be able to turn with your hand or may require pliers, good luck.

Has a thump thump noise as the drum goes around, no problem drying, just thumps.


The belt might be about to break. Check that. Sometimes it may split and still operate but the dangling piece of belt will hit something inside an make the noise.

Creda simplicity TVU1 tumble dryer is making a thumping noise while drying


Hi dave hemming.
I do not believe it is a bearing that is causing your thumping noise
*****************************************************************************
No...you do not need a new drum...all you need is new drum rollers
You probably have a flat spot on one of the rollers, it will make the thumping sound when the drum rotates.
Go to the following webpage and get your drum rollers and install them and that should take care of the noise you are hearing

Thumping noise


Sounds like the tub is unbalanced from either a bearing/pulley suspension problem or the unit has broken something off in between the tub and outer portion of the unit before you get to the walled panels, and you are hearing a rubbing and thumping noise. This is not a typical DIY job since the entire back panel of the unit needs to be pulled off and diagnosed.

My dryer makes a thump thump sound


  1. Thoroughly check the inside of the dryer for any foreign objects with hard surfaces. Sometimes items that fall out of pockets become stuck inside a dryer and make thumping noises.
  2. Check for level
  3. Make sure the dryer is level. A dryer that is out of level may not rotate properly. Banging or thumping noises from unleveled dryers are common, particularly if the dryer is resting against another metal object such as a washer.
  4. Check rollers
  5. If the thumping noises are present only for the first few minutes of the drying cycle the likely culprit is rollers. If the rollers are warped they will need to be replaced and a professional should be called in to help
