Henry, its going to be 1 of 2 things. Check inside your drum, see if the vent in the rear has burning or discoloration around it. If it does, it sounds as if your vent is restricted causing the unit to overheat, so clean/fix/replace the venting and your support pulleys will need to be repalce ie flat spots from overheat. If there is no scoarching marks and you know its not the vent or heat issue, the drum seam may have parted causing the thump as every revolution is made.

I had the same problem. Replaced the capacitor and now all is ok. Dryer is working 100%. If you hear a humming sound from the motor then it means the capcitor is faulty and does not start the motor properly.

The drum on my DLG0332W was also making noise at the back of the dryer...kind of a thump thump thump as the drum rotated. My dryer is only 4 years old. I got brave, downloaded the service manual and opened up the dryer. I found that the drum's welded seam was starting to separate where the roller wheels were coming into contact with the drum at the back of the dryer. Looks like a new drum is in order.

There maybe a lot of lont build up in the blower wheel housing. Take off bottom panel and take apart the blower wheel house and check for any lint build up....if it check ok, your drum rollers maybe worn....try checkin the blower wheel housing...hope this helps
