I've changed the drive belt, but it seems that the...

If the drum being pushed forward makes the problem better, I would say your felt pads under the drum which the drum rides on are either worn down the metal or loose.You need to remove the front casing of your dryer and inspect these felt pads. If they are loose tighten them up and if they are worn they need to be replaced. When you have your dryer apart you may also want to try to move the rear of the drum to the left and to the right and see if the back of the drum is loose as this means your bearings are loose and may need replacement. To fix this problem however the top of your dryer will have to be removed to take the drum out (many times the top will tilt back on hinges) because the bearings are on the back of the drum.

As dryer rotates, with clothes drying, it sounds like loose pocket change is loose in between the two!

the change gets caught in the three baffles that are attached to the drum.unplug the dryer,open the door and remove the two screws that hold the in place,remove the door,then remove the other two screws opposite the door screws and pull the front panel off.rotate the drum so one of the baffles are down in the right hand corner so you can get at the screws that hold the baffles onto the drum.try loosening the screws but you might have to remove the baffles to get to the change.let me know how you make out

This sounds like a faulty drum bearing. The grey marks you are seeing are grease from the bearing. The loose change sound is from the remnants of the bearing rotating as the drum turns.

Paddle in drum is loose at back of drum screw is loose how do i access to tighten ?

You need to get at the outside of the drum to reach those screws. You don't give a brand, but if it's a Whirlpool-made dryer (many are, like the Sears models), this page can help. It shows how to change a belt, and the first few steps explain how to open the machine to get at the drum.

Good luck with the repair, and thanks for using Fixya!

Cannot dis-mount the drum to change break pad

Drums Probably Have Deep Groove Cut In Them--BACK OFF AJUSTERS--This Will Allow Removal.

GE dry is making a noise like loose change is rolling around

There may be change rolling around in it.
Remove the top. Take the screws out of the drum baffles and remove the coins from inside the dryer drum baffles.
When replacing them, tighten them well to help prevent coins from getting in there.
