Probably a slipping belt.  Either overloaded or the belt is drying out.

Maytag dryer mdg6000bww vibration

could be a bad roller,that's a good dryer and worth repairing,hold on to it as long as you can and don't buy any warrany from sears,you have the neptune style dryer but it's hard to say what the problem could be without being there,if you're handy and want to try to repair it yourself i can do my best to help you or if you're in mass. call peter de's aplliance 781-438-9442,very good and usually can get you fixed first time out.could be bad rollers or if the dryer hasn't been pulled apart and cleaned out i've seen lint build up down in where the lint filter slides into and it gets built up on the blower wheel that could make this happen and when the heat comes on it might get louder because all a dryer does is move air if it's blocked somewhere in the dryer or vent line this can happen and it will take longer for your clothes to dry,hope this helps if you think you need service call peter he cleans out the dryer and vent line while he repairs the dryer,your dryer should be cleaned out once a year so you don't have a dryer fire.

My kelvinator dryer began to squeak loudly and now it will not run. When I push the start button, there is a sound, but the dryer would not work.

sounds like the barrel has jammed try turning it by hand to see if its jammed if so then it will need to be serviced by a lic tech if the barrel is free turning then i would say it has broken its belt the sqeaky noise would be its bearings wearing out putting the barrel out of alyghnment this too will need replacing

Maytag Neptune Dryer making vibrating noise while working

a bearing in the back for your drum sounds like what you describe. It needs to be taken apart and the bearing lubricated with high temp grease

if its completly shutting down aftger runnig for a bit, and sounds a little rough upon starting, sounds as if you may have a bad motor, its overheating( not allowing you to restart untill it cools off anyway.
