Lyndsey Mann was left “shaken” after filming the bizarre incident on a still and clear afternoon in Doncaster.
The clip shows the rotary dryer rattling violently with no apparent sign of what is causing the metal structure to shake.
Ms Mann is soon seen fleeing her garden to the safety of her home following the eerie incident.
While outside she says: “I daren’t go near it again.
“Oh my god that is weird. It’s not even windy.”
The camera then pans around to film still trees in a nearby garden. Ms Mann says: “Should we call Ghostbusters?”
The woman then dismisses the idea it could be a mole as it would not be “that strong” and adds “if it was an earthquake we’d feel it”.
As the dryer begins to sway violently once more, the woman decides she has seen enough and gets everyone back into the house before adding: “I’m shaking – I don’t even believe in ghosts.
“I don’t know what that is. Let’s go in, that’s horrible.”
The clip, which has racked up more than 3,000 views on Facebook, has led to some coming up with theories of their own.
One user said it could be someone pulling the washing line with fishing wire while others insisted it was a mole.
But Ms Mann told the Doncaster Free Press: “I have no idea what it was, it’s only on a ground spike.
“People think it was a mole but the movement was way too violent to be a mole, I don’t believe in paranormal but that seems the only option. I’ve never seen anything like it.”
Some believe it may be a poltergeist, which is thought to be a type of supernatural entity capable carrying out physical disturbances – it can include anything from hitting and pinching people to moving objects and creating noises.
