Question about GE WSM2700D Top Load Stacked Washer / Dryer
Someone said its my dryer belt, so I ordered a replacement belt. How do I change it?
check the following -
If your dryer is noisy, check these:
Rear drum bearing
Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.
Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it.
Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them.
Rear drum bearing
Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn.
Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

If the noise is like a shaking of rattling , like coins being shaked , then it is an object trapped inside the drum.
If instead the noise is a loud grinding , that may get louder on high speed, then it is usually a bad drum bearing.
If dryer is not cooling, check that the noise is not coming from the ventilation fan.
Rollers and belt tensioner can also make noise.

This is a classic symptom of pulley/motor shafts/bearings in need of lubrication. It's not the agitator. You'll need to take the back off (with power unplugged) to access.

When the felt on the front tub guides wears off it will squeak. It can be replaced by part 1220 and 1221 on this diagram and parts list. Take off the front panel along with the door to access it.
There is a ball and socket bearing at the back of the drum but it doesn't usually go bad. If you need to get to it, go in from the rear of the dryer behind the heat coils. 1212 is the bearing housing.
