Question about Frigidaire Dryers
Frigidaire Dryers use a ball and socket in the rear to support the drum. The socket is made of a Teflon type of plastic that will wear out when the grease is no longer present. By now, the ball of the drum is probably grinding away at the metal support for the socket, thus the loud noise. At the same time the front seals are probably worn out. These two things combined is causing alot of friction keeping the drum from turning freely. The parts required to fix these issues are not that expensive. Getting the dryer apart to replace these items however is time consuming and easier with two people.
The top panel, control panel, front panel and the drum will all have to be removed.

Hello uucyc1 - From what you have described it sounds like you either have a problem with the washer tub bearing, belt, motor or trunnion (steel bar that secures the inner basket to the transmission shaft). As far as the dryer, long dry times typically are a result of poor air flow. Make sure that the dryer exhaust vent is completely clear and that the unit is not overloaded. I would suggest contacting an experiencing service technician to determine the precise cause to both units.
