One of them drum wheels is bad.To get to it: Depending on the type of door the dryer has, is how you approach the access of these dryers. Mostly though you yank out the filter first.Remove the 2 screws in the filter housing on top.Then use a putty knife to pop the top. Remove the screws holding the front panel on. VERY IMPORTANT! Raise the front up an inch before pulling forward or the panel clips will break! Some models have a panel on bottom. If they do then this panel must come off first. Then you remove the door springs and back off the screws holding down the bottom of the door panel. Then pop the top and remove the screws on top to get the panel out of your way. Get the drum out and inspect the wheels.

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.
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. 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 to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition 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.

I hope this helps

Your motor is locked down possibly somehting in the blower hoising and I have seen socks get past the drum and get wedged inbetween the motor shaft and belt tensnoir. Quickest way to find out remove the two top screws where the lint trap is then take a flat head and pop the lid up slide the flat head in between the slot where the top meets the front about a inch in from the right and then the left slide the top back. Then remove the two 5/16 bolts holding the front on then remove door switch wire it will be on the right and the only one there with a quick disconnect harness once done slide the front back a little and lift up on it till the bottom comes out of its hangers the drum will drop a little. Then look towards the back right of the dryer under the drum where the motor is if theres no sock or anything other material or item wedged there put the front back on the same way you took it off. Once done remove the back panel off the dryer if you can lay the hole dryer on its front it will make it easier also leave the two lint screws for the top out. Next look at the lower left of the dryer that is the blower housing remove the 4 or 5 1/4" screws or 5/16" screws once done you should be able to slide the housing up and away enough to see if there is something on the blade wedging it. If so remove the item reasemble the dryer will run fine as long as the motor didnt sit to long on when it got jammed if its still making the humm noise and not coming on you have a bad motor which will run $125 to $150. After all that and you find nothing jammiing it up you have a bad motor could be the bearing went bad with it but the hole motor will have to be replaced. Hope this helps and sorry for the troubles.

According to the roper site you may not change to LP gas yourself. You will need to get a licensed LP technician to make the conversion. The reason why is that they will need to adjust the flow of the Lp so that the dryer will work right. If you do not get a Lp technician to do the work then you will for fit the warranty on the Dryer.
