Ususally knocking is a sign that the rubber belt which spins the dryer tub is old and has hardened. If the knocking sound gets quieter after you have run the dryer for 30 minutes or so, then the belt is the problem. As the dryer turns, it heats up the rubber belt and makes the belt more pliable. This quiets the knock. I have seen dryers work fine for years, knocking the whole time. Have the belt replaced if the sound bothers you.

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.

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.

Spin noise


If it is making a noise that sounds like a knock you could have a broken mount bolt. Pull the agitator out, remove dispenser or cap, take out inner cap, rmove bolt, agitator should pull out. now you can see the hub and the two bolts that hold the tub onto the shaft. one of the bolts could be broken. If it is go to the hardware store and get new stainless steel bolts and replace both. Also get some blue loc-tite or permatex, or the bolts can come out of the block. Hope this helps.
