I have a New dryer- just running it for the first time. As the drum is cycling around the dryer is making a noise almost like a slapping noise. It’s rhythmic and pretty loud. Any ideas?

It makes the sound even with NO clothing in the drum?

If so, there might be a loose cable or wire rubbing against the drum while it turns. You should call Maytag for warranty service at 1-800-344-1274.

Something might have just come loose during transportation.
