This happens intermittently throughout a drying cycle and is considered part of normal functioning.

Remember a few safety tips before getting started always unplug the appliance before servicing the inside cabinet always wait until the appliance is cool to service it wear protective eyewear and clothing when necessary and dont be afraid to call in a dryer repair professional when needed.
First check your drum bearings. In some models of gas or electric clothes dryers the drum is supported at the back of the cabinet by a bearing. Depending on the model of dryer the bearing may be a ball and socket bearing or a shaft connected to a sleeve bushing. A defective or broken rear bearing will make squealing or squeaking noises and will have to be replaced.
Next inspect the drum glides or slides. In both gas and electric dryer parts called the drum glides provide support to the front part of the dryers drum on both sides. The glides are built from Teflon nylon or plastic and have a felt or cork backing. The glides provide a surface for the drum to rotate on but they can wear down producing a scraping sound because of metal-to-metal contact. Remove your dryers cabinet and inspect the glides as indicated in your owners manual. If they appear to be worn or broken the set has to be replaced or call us at 800657-0765.
Next assess the drive belt. Just like a car many components of a dryer use belts for mechanical action. Gas and electric dryer have a belt to rotate the drum. The belt can become hard brittle or worn out over time and portions of the belt may split and cause a thumping sound when operating. Open your front panel to visually inspect the belts. On some models youll have to go in through the top.
Felt drum seals are used to prevent outside air from entering the dryer drum. The drum seals are made up of a material much like felt. If the felt seal is worn out torn or missing clothing can become stuck in the gap when the drum is active. This can make a scraping or thumping noise and the clothes can also be ripped or have black marks on them.
Finally address the motor. All dryers rely on a motor that turns both the blower and the dryer drum. A defective motor can produce a variety of sounds such as a rattling noise from a loose pulley a high-pitched sound from bad bearings or a humming noise from a bad switch. You will possibly have to remove the drum belt andor the blower wheel to isolate the motor as the cause for the noise.

When an idler pulley begins to fail it will create a squeaking or squealing noise which over time can progress to a scraping or thumping noise. The idler pulley places tension on the drum belt to keep the belt from slipping on either the drive motor pulley or the drum itself.
