Why is my GE dryer making noise?
Your GE dryer has at least two dryer drum rollers to support the drum as it rotates. With time, these rollers can wear out and a loud thumping sound typically results. When this occurs the roller needs to be replaced. Even if just one of the rollers is worn we suggest replacing all of them at the same time.
