Question about Dryers
Most likely the front drum supports (either rollers or slides) are worn out, forcing the drum to slide over an uneven surface. If the drum is supported in the rear on rollers, these could also be the problem. Rear axle/bearing mounted mechanisms can also cause this problem.
Less likely is a worn belt or worn idler pulley bearing. All these components can be replaced by a reasonably skilled homeowner, although the dryer will have to be disassembled to do so.
Hope this helps. Good luck.

Hey friend, I appreciate your post!
I understand that your Electrolux gas dryer is making a loud vibration noise and is also loud while tumbling. There are several components in your dryer that could be causing this noise. Based off what you are describing it might be an issue with your suspension rollers, motor, or pulley. Since it could be any of these underlying issues I would suggest getting a technician out to diagnosis and repair your dryer. Hope this is helpful. - Matt
