Question about Amana Dryers
You problem sounds to be noisy drum rollers.
Drum rollers will get flat spots on them and over time they will need lubrication.
If you have a front load machine, then you would normally remove the front and this will expose the drum...remove the drum and this will expose the drum rollers.
If you have flat spots on the rollers replace them...if they are in need of lubrication you can use a good grade of machine oil...such as 3 in one oil. You would oil the shaft of the drum roller.
If this does not solve the problem, then you may have to replace the drum rollers
I hope this helps.

Idler pulley your dryer has a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it.

Here is a video of the testing and replacing dryer drum rollers this will walk you thru the troubleshooting and replacement of these parts. Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. This brings us to the last problem could be the blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time.To check this grab the wheel and see if theres any play . But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you need to replace it.
