ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
You can get a parts manual from this website:
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.
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 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, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots 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.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:
Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
I hope this helps

do a search for sears service center and find a local "service and repair" center. they will be able to either figure out the part you need over the phone or ask you to bring the tool in, but i don't believe sears/craftsman makes their parts manuals readily available.

You can also order a manual at the same site.
Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks.

I have the same exact scroll saw. The hose number for this 16" scroll saw is 823812. On mine, the hose came off and I tried to put it back on and the plastic bellows where I'm suppose to hook it back up got pushed in and I've been trying to take off the housing but I can't seem to get it off. There's the arm bearings on the housing and I don't know how to take that off without breaking it. : > (
