My accountant husband has decided to requisition a new dryer.  This is after the dyrer thumped a long time & he concluded "nothing seems to be wrong!"  I, on the other hand, would like some advice on possible repair from someone other than a self-proclaimed "bean counter."  Thanks for any help!

Edited: LFE 6900

This is not the whole model number, but the LFE tells us this is a 1978 dryer.  The thumping would be the drum rollers.  The rear of the drum has dropped down catching your clothes.  You will need to take the dryer apart to see how much damage is done.  Probably need the 2 drum rollers, the belt and idler assy.  Look to see if the rear drum seal has been damaged from running the dryer a long time with the rollers going bad.  If the dryer panel the rear of the drum rotates around is ok, this dryer should be worth repairing.  What this dryer needed, the rollers, belt, idler is normal maintance to be done every 5-7 years.  You might also need the rear drum seal if it is damaged and cannot seal in the heat inside of the drym.
