Dryer makes banging noise

The dryer spins and heats, but it makes a loud banging noise on each revolution. How do I remove the front or back of the dryer to check it out?

    Great solution. Turns out that one of the bolts holding the clothes "bar" in the drum had worked loose. I tightened it, closed the dryer back up, and it works like a champ. The only problem is that the wife wants a shiny new one anyway. Too bad!

Basscat, you first remove the door by removing the screws from the hinges. The door will lift up a litte and pull off. Next remove the spacers on the other side. Now the front panel will pull out from the top. There will be two 1/4 inch screws with latches on each side of the frame, remove these and the top will lift up. Now by holding the door switch and starting the dryer, you will be able to see what is banging. Once you determine that, you can remove the bulk-head, should be 4 screws, be sure to unplug the door switch. Unfasten the belt, remember the configuration and remove the drum. You are now able to get at the insides. Catriver..post back.

My tumble dryer is making a loud banging noise when it turns. It is on for a few minutes and seems to happen when it switches to turn the opposite way

It will be worn slipper pads that are around the front edge of the drum. If your dryer can run when inverted that will stop the noise until the pads wear down again.
Purchase some new slipper pads and remove the back panel of the dryer moving the drum back about 1 inch. You will now see were the slipper pads are fitted around the inside edge at the front.
There will be about 6 of them, you can take the top ones and move them to the bottom. This will also stop the banging until they also wear down.

GE front load is making loud banging noise during spin, any ideas how to fix?

Sounds like what happens in a top load when the load is "out of balance". I suppose it's less likely to occur with front load. Test with a "light" load. Is the washing action a reversing action? If so there may be a transmission problem.

a loud noise comes when you forget to remove shipping bolts after installation or if the shocks are worn out it makes noise thirdly the bearings might be worn out if the washer is more than 6years old

Loud banging

Several possibilities for noise. check concrete balance wieghts at top and bottom of washer, make sure they are not loose.
Check drum restraint spring(s) are not broken.
Check suspension legs for wear.
Check for loose motor fixings.
Finally, remove drum belt, and spin drum by hand, tjhere should be noise from bearings, if it feels rough or is rumbling , then main bearings have failed.
Please rate my comments.
Thanks.

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.

You may have had a foreign object slip under a loose drum baffle. Manually rotate the drum to locate wwhich baffle it is in.
