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.

Logik LVD7W18 Tumble-dryer making a knocking sound

Hi,

One might need to oil up some of the internal parts of the dryer that are not electronic. It sounds like there might be friction causing the nocking sound. After the oiling of metal portions of the dryer, the sound should go away.

Thank you.

My kenmore dryer is making a knocking sound , I replaced the tension bar and the rollers along with the belt and it's still making the same noise, what could it be?

If your axles on the tub rollers had no flat spots and the knocking noise sounds like its at the same tie interval sounds like the rear seal on the dryer drum is worn ou.t

Check the tensioner pulley that keeps the belt tight. It is next to the motor and the bearing may be shot.

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.

Kenmore front loading HE3 makes knocking sounds during spin cycle

Ours started knocking several months ago and then progressed to a high pitched sound when in the spin cycle. I manually turned the drum and heard and felt a bearing roughness. I lifted the drum assembly and felt a fair amount of play, which I think the initial knocking noise came from. On the sears web site a new rear drum mount cost 293.00. Today we went and bought a LG model wm2455hw at Home depot, on sale until 2/20/08. I couldn't see paying to repair a machine that only lasted four years.
