SOURCE: I have a Frigidaire gallery
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)

ouch budddie...happy new year ...looking in the dryer are you taking about those there center mass,,,if that attactes the back bearing surport to the drum...,,if that the two parts which i think your talking about ..you have to take the drum all the way out,,because those three screws are shape like a piece of pizza....it will never line up with drum in...

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

Sounds like you have two problems with your dryer, both are fairly easy fixes if you are mechanically inclined and cheaper than buying a new dryer.
ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
1...Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley. 2..Sounds like the front seal between the drum and the door needs to be replaced
If you have a front loading machine, Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer. Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt and front seal. You can now replace or reposition the drum seal if it has moved from its normal position. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor. Now is a good time to check the belt for wear. Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt. Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them. If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.
