Without a model number all I can do is pass you a generic response. There are 2 sizes of repair kits that include drum rollers (Flat spots on yours) a belt and a drum felt. 27 inch and 29 inch. Having said that... the drum rollers are what are causing your thumping noise. PN: 303373
I would also replace the belt: 31531589 the drum glides 306508 and the drum seals Multi-listing here: http://www.repairclinic.com/Maytag-Dryer-Gasket-Or-Seal-Parts?z=50 also inspect the idler pulley and bearing. Not sure how old your dryer is but by doing the above you should get more than 5 years good service out of your dryer. It is worth the time effort and expense to repair it.
Your slides are worn and when you put clothes in the metal tub is now getting tracktion/ making metal to metal contact when it shouldn't and overloading the electric/belt drive. There is a kit to fix the problem but the dryer will need disassebled to put it in. At this time it would also be adviseable to replace the belt and tub bearing as well.
