Two possibilities come to mind. one) the drum bearing is shot! second) the drum rides on two felt and plastic "bearings" at the front of the dryer. these felts might be completely worn causing the drum to flop around.

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.

When it rotates it gives metal banging sound what is the reason?


Make sure dryer is level on the floor, and that nothing is leaning against the dryer.
Make sure nothing is loose inside the drum. Check all exposed screws, and make sure they are tight.

Check for foreign objects in the drum. (Coins, buttons and zippers will make a rattling sound as they roll around in the drum)

Good Luck and have a nice day
Rating the solution is highly appreciated

Amana Dryer takes a long time to dry and is making a rattling sound

Could be a problem with the thermostats..or the heating element.
The rattling sound could be the dryer rollers needing lubricant on the shaft and bearing.
