Most of the time a "clunking" or "knocking" dryer is caused from a cracked drum (the actual area that the clothes sit in) It is usually a broken weld or simply a cracked drum. You will need to peek inside the dryer with a flashlight and look for a crack in the drum area.

Frigidaire dryer started loud knocking. A cpl weeks later knock stopped but it took 2-3 cycles to dry. Now it won't dry at all. What's a good place to start troubleshooting?


Hello Dondrake, thank you for your submission!
From the information you have provided your Frigidaire dryer was knocking and now it is no longer heating. This could be a potential problem within your heating element or control panel. I would suggest performing a reset on your dryer and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord from the dryer for at least ten minutes. I hope this information is helpful to your repair. -Matt

Knocking sounds


Ususally knocking is a sign that the rubber belt which spins the dryer tub is old and has hardened. If the knocking sound gets quieter after you have run the dryer for 30 minutes or so, then the belt is the problem. As the dryer turns, it heats up the rubber belt and makes the belt more pliable. This quiets the knock. I have seen dryers work fine for years, knocking the whole time. Have the belt replaced if the sound bothers you.
