Re: Frigidaire Front Load Dryer
Reach inside the drum and feel the drum inserts to see if one of those has come loose. Sometimes you can have one of those screws back out and hit something on the inside. Could also be a bent drum (doubtful unless its been overloaded or abused real bad) a front slide is bad (would probably cause squeeking or grinding noise) or rear bering (also should squeek or grind). Good Luck!!! Jim
Have had the same problem with mine and it eats everything that has a small sting. It clunks when it starts eating. Peal the panties or sweat strings back out of the fron of the drum and it quiets down...Now, without warning, it locked up solid. This dryer is 2 years old. Extremely disappointed in this product at this point.

Hi Denise, thank you for your question. There could be a few possibilities of why your Frigidaire dryer is making a thumping noise. To better assist you; may I please have your model number? The serial tag, which lists your model number, is typically located on the upper front, as you open the door. With this information I can better address the issue at hand. Thank you - Z.
Possible bad bearing for the drum front or maybe a drive belt with a missing segment that thumps with every revolution. You will need to open the top to inspect--either screws in the back edge of the top or insert a thin putty knife into the front corners to release a spring catch on each side. Hope this helps!
Need more information to make an accurate diagnosis, try removing the front panel (two screws at bottom) and visually check first the belt (all the way around) and then the springs that hold the tub suspended.
I would bet on the belt.
