In most cases, vibration sounds come from which ever helps the drum to spin with no resistance, In most cases those would be drum support wheels or bearings depending on the model.
In some rare cases, blower or belt pulley could also cause similar symptoms.
In all likelihood the belt that turns the drum is frayed. and may need replacing. It would be a good idea to unplug it and take a good look at the belt before it comes completely off, this way there won't be any confusion about how the new one goes on.The only moving parts when it is in operation is, the drum, belt and a very small wheel on which the belt travels.
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication. If you have a front loading machine, Unplug the dryer, remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers. Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them. If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve you noise problem. Good Luck, I hope this helps
You need to have you belt replaced. Over time the belt will strech. this causes the dryer to still spin but the belt will sometimes loose the grasp of the drum and cause the belt to spin only.
This happens because over time with heavy loads of towles and jeans pull down on the drum as it is being loaded. Than when in cycle the jeans will drop from the top to the bottom pulling aginst it even more..
