it's probably the nylon bushings that the drum rides on. they wear out and the drum rides directly on the pad that the bushings attach to.

the dryer circuit will be clearly labelled in the house box, there will be two fuses or a single two phase breaker for this circuit.
there are not usually electrical fuses as such IN a dryer, there are thermostats to regulate temperature, and a thermal fuse, that cuts the power totally to the heat element if air temperature rises above its melt point.
the element itself has a limited life span and may fuse/burnout.
to test electrical components.
open case, by removing the front,
described elsewhere in any of the 'changing belt' threads
locate the thermal cutouts, on the fan housing or exhaust duct and disconnect one wire to isolate it from the rest of the circuit, test with ohmmmeter, no-continuity replace, continuity reconnect wire
thermal cuttouts look like these ~1inch accross.
locate the heat element and disconnect one wire to isolate it from the rest of the circuit, test with ohmmmeter, no-continuity replace, continuity reconnect wire
while you have the dryer open de-lint the fan and exhaust ducting, most common cause of element or themal fuse failure is air flow restriction
you get a lot of lint out of the fan even when proper cleaning is done, and clean out the ducting right to the exterior walls
this was the rather extreme result of not cleaning the duct (brainiac placed a wire across the terminals of the burnt out thermal fuse)

Probably the rear bearing has failed and caused the drum to rub against the heating element. Hey, is this the guy that said he heard a noise last month? LOL

Your dryer drum front support glides and rear drum bearing needs to be replaced, parts are not expensive but labor to do the job may be $50 to $100 dollars.
You should call Frigidaire customer help line just to gather some info from them. 1-800-FRIGIDAIRE
Good luck !

Hello Hannah Kottman - Sounds like the tub is unbalanced from either a bearing/pulley suspension problem or the unit has broken something off in between the tub and outer portion of the unit. This is not a typical DIY job since the entire back panel of the unit needs to be pulled off and diagnosed. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.
