    Default DV56H9100EW/A Samsung Dryer Cracked Drum - Thumping sound

    Model Number: DV56H9100EW
    Brand: Samsung
    Age: 1-5 years

    Hi,

    My Samsung dryer started making thumping sounds about 6 months ago, and I knew the drum was cracked. Had a small crack, but now advancing beyond a point where I can ignore it, since it is about 6 inches long.

    The question is, do I just replace the drum only, or what else should I look for? Bad wheel maybe?

    Thank you

    Tip of the day, set your Samsung Smart Fridge to a foreign language so Google can't spy on you!!

    This dryer was over a $1000. I need a huge dryer, I have 4 boys. . I am willing to spend $300 to replace it. Looks like to replace the wheels I need to take apart the dryer in anycase.
