Hey everyone I have a LG DLG2526W dryer that is a year and a half old and it makes a clunking noise when it turns like its off track. any suggestions?

Does the barrel have any flat spots that might create a bump when they pass over the rollers or front supports? Examine the inside front and rear areas thoroughly.

Replace the rollers, this has been a big problem with the LG dryers.
The replacement rollers are a different color and made of a harder rubber.
