Hi I own this dryer and you have two choices for venting it. One reason I originally bought it is because you can run it safely without venting it to the outside. That's a huge plus for many small apartments or a dorm room etc. For that option you purchase a 'ventless' kit from Lowe's or Home Depot, can't remember the exact cost but definitely less than $20. It works very well, but will add some heat to your living space (nice if you're in NY, less nice in Miami). It didn't add a lot of heat to the space, but later on I ended up installing a vent through the outside wall (which was much easier to do than I thought) because I was doing some drywall work in that area anyway. That vent is also very inexpensive, maybe $10. The standard vent kit opening will be for 4" whereas this dryer's vent opening is 3" - but the dryer comes with a piece that makes the 3" to 4" transition for you. This is a very convenient unit because it only needs 110v (standard household outlet) instead of the usual 220 (or is that 240?). The main thing that will help you be happy with it is just to have the realistic expectation that it takes about twice as long to dry clothes (60-90 min) because it's on lightweight power. But it does a very nice job, and we love the little washing machine we got with it too!

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers may be in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.
If you have a front loading machine,
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.Also remove the screws holding the lint filter in place.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.
