The dryer was noisy when running so I replaced the rollers and tensioner/belt. One of the shafts looked a little damaged, but it seem to roll fine. Fast forward a couple of weeks and it now sounds like there is a tennis shoe rolling around inside the dryer, especially if it is a light load. I can reach in and pull the drum forward and it sounds better for a few seconds, then back to the thumping. Should I replace the rollers again and their shafts?

My dryer had extended problems with a roller years ago and we replaced the broken one, the back felt and the belt. We noticed that the bulkhead was gouged at the time but moved ahead with the repair. Fast forward 8 years. It had been working fantastic. No noise or problems with clothes being pinched causing holes. Now however the dreaded holes in the clothes are back. No noise other than a slight squeek. We checked the rollers and the felt appears fine however the front felt and plastic bearing is looking worn and a clip is broke. What could be the new cause in clothing being pinched creating small holes in lighter weight fabric and some midweight fabric?

Dryer was thumbing. The rollers were bad. I replaced the rollers, belt and tensioner. Now it is making a rubbing noise. Took it apart two more times and still unable to determine the cause. I suspect it could be the tensioner wheel rubbing the motor pulley, but I can not confirm. Any ideas?

Hello. The unit has a LOUD thumping sound, like a bass drum in a parade that sounds every second or two when the dryer is running. I took it completely apart and the rollers seem fine and the motor rotates, but could it be a drum (warped?) or worn rear felt? We've had this dryer for years, and I've replaced heating elements and belts but that's been it. Other wise, except for the thumping sound, it works fine. Thank you.

My dryer has begun to make this really loud noise while running. It starts off quiet but gradually gets louder. It's kind of like a rubbing noise. When I open the door the drum is turning but it is definitely the drum making the noise. I opened the top of the dryer and looked at the black seal strip and it looks fine. Just wondering what could be making the noise now. It also smelled like burning hair when I shut it off. Not sure if this help but it was something else I noticed.
