Question about Frigidaire GLEQ2152ES Electric Dryer
ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear 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.

It may be that one of the plastic pieces inside the trum has somthing under it. Coins of other things can get under them. You will have to tilt the top back so you can get to them. Unscrew 3 screws in each of them remove them and check them . Watch how you took it out so they can be put back just like they came out.
Take a putty knife and run it between the top and the front panel not far from the corner and push the two clips back one on each side. Raize the top up and brace it. Unhook the door switch take the two 5/16 screws out of the top of the front panel and pull the front panel toward you and lift it off the clips at the bottom. Put something under the front of the drum to hold it up while you take off the belt. On the right side reach under the drum and push the idler pully to the right and take the belt off the motor pully.Now you can take the drum and belt out. You could start the motor with the belt off and see if the motor is making the noise. Don't run too long. Now you can check the idler pully, the rollers the drum rides on in the back the felt on the front panel and the back of the drum. Also check the belt Be sure and mark how everything came off and put back just like it came off. Hope this helps

Tips for a great answer:
Hi kirst_alers2 - From what you have described it sounds like you either have a problem with the belt, front (and/or rear) bearing, or a loose connection with the motor or drum. Lint or something else clogging the vent could be causing the dryer to take a longer time to dry the clothing. If the dryer is taking too long to dry then the issue may lie with a faulty sensor. I recommend contacting a professional to accurately diagnose the issue, the part(s) may have to be replaced depending if they are worn, damaged or loose. You can often locate a qualified tech through the manufacturer website.
