May want to check your venting system to the outside. If the dryer cannot blow out enough heat outside due to the vent being clogged or kinked, then it will overheat causing panels and moving parts inside the dryer to get too hot and rattle.

Dryer rattle


Hi,
I guess you have stumbled upon the resolution yourself.
The Tub ratlling could be because of three things.
1. The Belt itself , as it might have slacked after use. and needs replacement
2. The tumbler bearing, that would require you to open the tub
3. The holding bolts that connect both the inside and outside tubs of the dryer.

and do check the floor balance of the dryer.if the surface is not even the dryer can tumble and make noise.

Thanks

Maytag gas dryer makes loud rattling noise. Not a squeaking noise, but something between a rattle and a fast, rhythmic knocking. Tumbler works, heat works, but insane noise.


sounds like the drum isnt balanced. either make sure appliance is properly balanced on the floor or make sure you are not overfilling the tub.
