it could be a worn motor bearing, but they usually last for 20 years, i would guess that you have a worn drum roller, the thing that holds up the drum and looks like a wheel.
if your sure the motor has a worn bearing then replacing the motor is not easy as you have to unscrew the blower wheel from the motor shaft.
it also may be that you are talking about the idler pulley being worn. it is the device that holds tension against the belt and they also will wear out and be "wobbly"

110 means you have a whirlpool dryer. If the filter is on top then I would say you have a bad glide, if the filter is in the door you have a bad wheel, very rare. At any rate you need to open it up and inspect it.
