Question about Maytag Dryers
Depending upon the model the drum rests on a set of rollers or glode strips. If the drum has a flat spot or overly large seam then it will thump. If the thump is about once a second.
I have seen this a number of times on the Performa line. The drum needed to be replaced to correct it.
Alternately if there is a flat spot on a roller it will sound faster than once a second.
This is usually covered under a manufacturers warranty.
