Knocking or Rattling Sound - Dryer

 

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.
  • Sometimes when the washer spins, it will cause the dryer cabinet to vibrate. Leave space between the washer and dryer to avoid this sound.
  • If the dryer is mounted on a dryer pedestal, items in the pedestal drawer may be rattling/vibrating causing the sound.
