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.

    5 years later I am doing the drum glides again. Not a big deal. Probably about an hour job. When your dryer starts tryng to eat your clothes, it's time to do the drum glides. Might as well replace the felt at the same time

What is the thumping sound in my frigidaire front loader dryer?

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.

The dryer sounds like an unbalanced washer. Sound is coming from the front top left side. Machine diesn't move. does it even when empty. Began after was on for about 10 minutes.

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!

Frigidaire was tub makes loud thump noise during spin cycle....

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.
