I purchased my LG dryer in July of 2013. At the time, the rattle was present, but I had two repairmen on LG's dime to inspect it and they said this was just normal noise. They claimed that the drums are so thin that the noise is "just there" in some machines. There was nothing faulty with it, it wasn't rubbing on anything (although they didn't really do anything other than take the top off and observe it), etc. I'm mad at myself for settling for this answer, because fast forward a year, and it's still bothering me.

The noise is there upon start up no matter what size load is in there. It is not there if I rotate the drum from the inside by hand. After about 10-15 minutes, the rattle usually goes away. When rattling, I can make the noise stop if I apply pressure to the outside of the dryer (top, front at the door, or on the sides).

Any ideas for me? Thank you in advance.

Good afternoon. I have a similar issue with a LG dryer. Did you ever figure out the issue?
