Question about Dryers
Sounds more like a pulley wheel gone bad. There are 2 wheels one on each side of dryer drum where it rests . When one wheel goes bad the drum turns on an angle and causes that grinding noise

Both sound like the drive belt to me - I've just replaced mine.
BirdG is probably snapped.
mildew is on the way - the motor will burn through it if left unfixed.
you may be able to tighten it and get more time out of it but sounds like it has a worn patch and will go soon.
(tightening is easy- just remove the fan belt cover at the back,slacken the large bolt below the motor and rotate the motor to push the jockey wheel harder against the belt, then retighten the bolt.
replacing is harder.

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.

The drum rollers need to be replaced at once. Disconnect power then remove the three screws attaching the top panel bracket to the rear of the machine. Push the top panel backward then lift to remove.
Remove the two screws attaching the control panel frame to the cabinet. Disconnect the connectors then pull the control panel assembly upward and then forward to remove.
Open the door and remove the two screws from the bottom of the door opening. Remove the four screws attaching the front panel from the cabinet. Disconnect the harness of door switch then remove the front panel.
Disconnect the door lamp and electrode sensor connector. Remove the four screws attaching the front bulkhead to the cabinet then remove.
Remove the drum and the rear bulkhead for complete access of the drum rollers. Reassemble the dryer in reverse order of the disassembly steps.
