You need to replace your drum bearings, you will need to pull the front off the dryer to get to them. They should only run you 6 to 10 each and you have 2 of them. If your handy you can do it on your own. Go to marcone.com with your dryers model # and you will see a diagram of the dryer and be able to order the parts. Good Luck, you can do it!

Maytag performa electric dyer makes dragging noise drum turns but acts like something catches and makes a dragging or scraping sound


assuming nothing is stuck around drum pull off the front and check the fan. If it is noisy for a few seconds after you stop the dryer then the fan may be stripped on motor shaft. while off you can check the front glides and the rear rollers

Dryer drum is scraping against something and making a thumping noise as it spins


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Problem 1... Your scraping noise is probably coming from the drum rubbing the door as it rotates, you door seal may need replacement.
Problem 2...Your other problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Wire Scraping sound and sparks inside rear dryer drum area.


Probably the rear bearing has failed and caused the drum to rub against the heating element. Hey, is this the guy that said he heard a noise last month? LOL
