Question about Maytag PYE2300AY Electric Dryer
The Problems you are experiencing can be caused by drum rollers that are worn or from a blower wheel (attached to motor) that has become worn on the shaft and is turning independently of the motor shaft. The description below will sdescribe getting the top and front of the dryer off. This will reveal both and allow you to replace them. The blower wheel should NOT turn without turning the motor. The failure which causes the noise is a rounding of the flat spot that mates with the flat on the motor shaft. If the internal hole on the blower wheel doesn't have a flat area, it needs to be replaced.
Unplug the cord of the dryer before starting.
Raise top by placing a putty knife between top and front in the seam between the two about 2 inches in from each edge and lifting up at the same time. Raise top to full open position.
Look down inside the open top dryer at each side there will be a screw on each side a few inches down. Leaning against the front remove the two screws and pull the top forward a few inches and raise it from the supports at bottom then swing it aside protecting any wiring.
The blower wheel is at the front, the drum rollers are mounted to the rear walls.

Sounds like your problem may be from flat spots on your drum rollers.
If you have a front loading machine, you would remove the front of the dryer, this will expose the drum. Then you would remove the drum and this will expose the drum rollers. Take a look at them and make sure they look good, while you got the drum out of the way go ahead and lubricate them at the shaft with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil.
Hope this helps
