SOURCE: MY DRYER Frigidaire Model Number
Sounds like your heating element has broken. Unplug from electricity. On the front of the dryer there are two clips that hold the top of the dryer to the front they can be tripped by inserting a flat blade screwdriver between the top and front panel apx 2 inches in from the side in the seam where the top and front come together. These clips are sprung steel and you have to push hard. (I usually give the screwdriver a sharp rap with a hammer) When you trip them you can lift the top up and backwards. Then about 12 inches down the inside front you will see a 5/16 nut that holds the front to the sides take them out. Then you can pull forward and lift the front off the machine. You will need to remove the belt you can look under the drum the belt goes thru two pullys one is a tensioner pop the belt off the tensioner and pay attention how the tensioner looks it may fall down and you will have to rehook it to put the belt back. I believe this model also has an access door at the tensioner and motor that gives closer access to the belt. Then you just lift the drum up and out of the dryer pull forward slightly before lifting up. The heating element will be exsposed in the back and the wire that was arching will be here. Remove the wires to the element and the mounting screws on the element pan. Unhook the Hi limit sensor on the pan and put it on the new one. Reinstall the element ect in reverse. The only problems you may run into is where the wires hook to the element can be hard to remove and unhooking the belt pay close attention to the tensioner and how the belt is attached to the tensioner and motor. This should only take you about 40 minutes to complete. I hope this helps

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Note: This method works with most front loading machines.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Note: Some tops hinge and tilt backwards so they do not have to be removed and the electrical console with stay with the lid.
Also remove the lint filter and the screws holding the lint filter housing in place.
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 by removing two screws located on either side of the top of the dryer housing and unplug the door switch.
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 replace the front felt seal on the drum if it needs to be replaced. Be sure to use a good grade of weatherproof cement on the seal to glue it to the drum, sometimes the glue is furnished with the seal.
Now is also 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 they will make a thumping type of noise or if there is too much 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, or a light lubricant like Vasoline.
Reassemble the dryer.
Plug back into your electrical receptical.
This should solve your noise problem.
