Dryer Sounds and Noises

Whirlpool Dryer Sounds and Noises

Is the Dryer being Used for the First Time?

A dryer roller sound noticed in the initial cycles after installation will decrease over a period of regular use. Over time, the rubber rollers will conform to the dryer drum, reducing roller sound.

Has the Dryer Had a Period of Non-Use? 

If the dryer hasn't been used for a while, there may be a light thumping sound during the first few minutes of operation. When the dryer is not used, the drum support rollers can flatten where the rollers and drum touch. The flat spot causes the thumping sound. Once the dryer runs for some time, the rollers will regain their shape, and the sound should stop.

Were Items left in the Pockets

You may not notice these items until they reach the dryer. These items can cause rattling, thumping, clicking, or tapping. Always check your pockets before putting items in the washer.
