Can you push the drum up and down. If so then the main bearing has gone bad and needs to be replaced. This is the only metal on metal rubbing you will get unless the machine is off balanced. This is caused usually by doing to heavy of loads and wearing out the bearing

Depends on what kind of noise...
-Repetative muffled creaking: Probably the metal drum sliding against the plastic mount that holds the front of the drum. It can be TEMPORARILY eliminated by disassembling the dryer and tampering with the felt strip so that the drum has more play and turns more freely. It does not indicate a major problem.
-Metal against metal scraping: Maybe the metal cabinet got bashed in just enough that the drum rubs against it? This kind of sound should be investigated and fixed.
(For what it's worth, my DPSE810EG4 does has the repetative muffled creaking.)
