It is probably a motor bearing. My Lavatherm had a constant noise while running. It had a clogged drainage in the fan, causing water in one of the motor bearing and after som time the bearing worn out.

I don't know if it is necessary to replace both at the same time since the roller on the left, which is above the heat chamber, seems to go out twice as quick as the other one. On this dryer I've replace several rollers, the glides at the front, the tensioner pully, the motor....and today I replaced the plastic blower fan. The dryer is 7 years old and most of the parts I've had to replace are due to poor quality parts in my opinion. I think they design replacement items in appliances for job security reasons. :-(

I have this dryer and have had the same problem TWICE. I would be willing to bet, based on my experience that the support roller(s) in the back that are under the drum are bad. The good news is they are simple to replace IF you are at all handy! Just carefully remove the hex screws starting at the bottom front and progressing the the ones holding the drum in place (10 all together). Be sure to mark which connector goes in which spot for the door closure and the light (oh, good idea to shut off the power!!)

Pullin the drum forward will get you access to the drum support roller and its bracket. They are sold as a set (arond $20) and the replcements are a FAR better quality than the original!! The original has a hardened nylon wheel riding on a steel shaft - did NO ONE see THIS as a major wear issue?? The replacemnt part has a steel sleeve in the roller, much better.

BIG FYI, if you are replacing one, you SHOULD replace them both, otherwise you WILL be doing this again (wish I had done THAT)

Might be what is called a jockey wheel, which is fairly cheap to replace

Get specific on the noise and potential related causes. Then tell how to repair. "It's best to call an appliance repair service" is not the caliber of advice people expect from the web.

The dryer is 14 months old and when I use it, empty or full, sounds like a brick is tumbling inside

Some noises are caused by objects bouncing around inside the drum, or by loose, vibrating dryer parts. Scour the interior of the drum for loose objects. If the noise is being caused by defective parts-- notably a worn or defective drum belt, idler pulley, support roller, or worn motor bearings-- it's best to call an appliance repair service. If your dryer runs but doesn't tumble, this situation indicates that something is wrong with the switch, motor, belt, or mechanism that turns the drum. Call a repair service.

Very noisy, getting extremely hot on top--will burn skin

If it is able to burn skin DO NOT use it!!! It can easily start a fire.
With the added noise symptom, i am guessing something broke loose and is either rubbing or conducting electricity. Either way, it should be opened up and serviced.

Noisy spin on hotpoint aquarius WF530 6kg washing machine. Suspect bearing how do I replace them.

If you spin the drum by hand, and it is niosy and rumbling then the main drum bearings have failed.
If under 5 years old, then you should be able to get it repaired under Hotpoint 5 year guarantee, You just pay for labour and call out, cheapest option, it is not really a D.I.Y job, as it is quite involved, and entails a lot of work.
Please rate my advice.

Door locking & drum noisy

It sounds as though the main drum bearings are failing, if you spin the drum by hand and it feels rough or sounds niosy, then it is definately the main bearings. there should be little or no noise when you spin the drum by hand.. Re the door lock,I do not think the two problems are related, could be a faulty door lock that is taking too long to release.

If the m/c is under 5 years old, then you should be able to get it put right under Hotpoint 5 year guarantee

You pay for labour, all parts are free, and in your case the cost of parts, would in excess of £100.00
So it would be worth a phone call to Hotpoint to confirm if you are covered.
Plz rate my solution,
