This link goes directly to the exploded view/tear down page for G.E. dryers at Repairclinic.com. From there you can navigate back to the parts breakdown/order page. Just enter your model no. in the search box and click search Most G.E. dryers have 3 or 4 screws holding the top panel to the front panel. Open the door andd they should be accessible at the top of the door opening. After removing those, then should be 2 screws at the bottom to loosen, then the front lifts off the 2 screws. The diagram should help guide you through the rest.

I am having this same problem with my GE dryer. I found a post on fixitnow.com from a guy that has repaired these for years. He says it is the rear drum bearing. Looks like a pretty easy fix, I am going to try to do it myself. If you try this, I have also read that you should spend the extra $10 to go ahead and replace the drums front felt glide kit.

the plastic that you see overlapping the metal on the sides of the opening is in two parts, top and bottom, you can see the seem. the top is the smaller part, this plastic is also the drum support on the front. There are some glides on the top section that wear with time, after a few years they may need replacement. Perhaps these are worn out dropping the drum creating an uneven gap and catching. there is also a felt strip in there between the front of the dryer and the drum, keeping it back.
To view this remove the top by removing the 2 screws inside upper door opening holding top down. then lift top and if plastic console slide to left then pull away, metal -just pull straight. remove 2 screws holding front to cabinet sides. pull front forward. glides are visible on top. if not there or worn thru plastic replace upper plastic support
