Knocking/Rattling sound

 

Possible Solutions

Knocking/Rattling Sound:

  • Zippers, buckles, buttons and rivets on garments as well as loose coins, paper clips, pens, or similar items may be tumbling in the dryer. Always check and clear pockets prior to washing.
  • Items leaning against the dryer may also cause a knocking or rattling noise. 
  • Remove objects from the top of the dryer that may be causing the sound.

Also verify that no other items are leaning against the unit, such as every day household items. Brooms, dustpans, dryer racks, or hangers can make rattling noises if they are leaning against the washer, especially during high spin speeds. Always check around the outside of your unit before use for items that may cause noise.
