This is probably the front AND/OR rear bearings. The front bearing
is felt with slides and fits around the front of the tub.
The dryer has to be disassembled to get at either one.
See if the top panel has hinges in the back if so then all you have to do is raise the top panel to look at the front bearing.
If this was helpful please rate me.

Have a 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee used cruise control last week made a grinding noise I turned it off truck went slow for a few now it will not accelerate past 50mph what could be wrong?

Nothing in the cruise control system to make a grinding noise. It is electronic or maybe with yours vacuum controlled. Or a little of both. This could just be coincidental. If it did die, it wouldn't keep you from going faster than fifty. Have the engine and transmission codes read.

Under heavy load, driver slips, makes grinding noise. How to fix?

Sounds like the gears are worn out. Not worth fixing. But if you buy a drill that uses the same battery pack, now you will have a spare battery and charger.

Got an OE error, now it will not finish rinse and spin, sounds like it is grinding in the spin cycle and the timer is stopped at 27 minutes remaining. What is wrong?

The problem is in the drain system as what error code OE stands for.The grinding noise is coming from the drain pump. Loose change, hair pins and the likes can get into the pump filter and sometimes into the pump impeller causing a grinding noise during the spin cycle because the pump works while the machine is spinning. The pump impeller may also be broken causing the grinding noise.

Disconnect power then open the filter door on the bottom left of the cabinet.

Remove the drain plug and drain the water out completely into a shallow basin or the likes. Once drained, lay a piece of towel under the filter then turn the filter knob counterclockwise and remove it. Clean the filter and reach in the pump impeller to check it if blocked or broken. If cleaning the filter does not solve the problem, you need to access the drain pump assembly and check the pump particularly the impeller thoroughly. Click on the link below for the detailed procedure in accessing the drain pump assembly.
