few possibilities here,idle pulleys could be wearing,front drum guides could be wearing,back drum bearing,bit early for these problems though,but sometimes coins get lodged at the drum paddles inside located 120degrees apart which wouldnt be anything to worry about if you can verify this,hope this helps
