Thumping drum noise

My Frigidaire GLEQ2152ES Electric dryer just started thumping when it spins.  Sounds like it's coming from the corner of the door.  When the door is pushed in (while dryer is on) the thumping quiets down.  The thumping seems to get loud and soft intermittently.  Can a I fix it myself? Any online repair site suggestions?

DEAR FRIEND,
ngfam1 here for you!
I am happy to be of assistance!

It sounds like one of the wheels that the drum spins on is defective and needs to be replaced!
NO! Let service do the job! They will know what it is and order the correct part!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Here is the service company I refer my appliance customers too!
A&E Factory Service
A Nation Wide Company. / Available 24 / 7 for arranging appointments! In the USA.
1(800) 905-9505

If this dryer is 10 years old or more do not spend any money on it!
The new ones are much more efficient! If you have to replace it buy a Speed Queen , it will do 8 loads a week for 25 years!
It's the last washer and dryer I will ever buy!!!! And less expensive than a top of the line unit!


Good luck!
You will be fine now!

Thank You
Bless you,ngfam1

Thumping noise when drum makes a full revolution


Open the cabinet and look at the screws that hold the vane (paddles) on inside the drum. They will come loose and make the noise you described.

Dryer drum is scraping against something and making a thumping noise as it spins


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Problem 1... Your scraping noise is probably coming from the drum rubbing the door as it rotates, you door seal may need replacement.
Problem 2...Your other problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.

Druer works, heat and tumbling but it makes a loud


UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine,
Remove the electrical box that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. 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.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

Dryer makes a thumping noise when drum is turning its an electric fridgidare de5520rw2


Sounds like you have flat spots on your drum rollers.
If your machine is a front loader, remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt, and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check the rollers to see if they have flat spots on them, if they do replace them with new ones. This should solve your thumping noise.
If the rollers do not have flat spots on them then you can try to lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil.
I hope this helps

Loud thumping noise in Frigidaire model # FDE336RES2


You have to remove the top lid. Then remove the front panel. Then remove the belt and drum.
Your problem is a bad rear drum support assembly.
Remember to unplug the dryer.
