Your drum rollers are faulty, they probably have flat spots on them and is in need of replacement
Go to this website and you can download your manual for this dryer and it will tell you how to take apart your machine and repair it saving you lots of money from a service call.
You can do a search on the net for parts, they are somewhat inexpensive for the rollers.
Please rate me

As soon as we turn on the dryer it's really loud and vibrates a ton. It just started one day


First make sure that its properly balanced, if the issue remains then it is due to the belt that is bad and its time for belt replacement. Usually loud noise comes when the belt is either worn out or broke. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My dryer vibrates loudly, wondering if it is a bearing problem, and if so, is it worth getting fixed?

vibrations and such noises are definitely caused by something out of balance, or not spinning truly. some maytags were plagued with wimpy blower wheels which when worn made horrendous noises. without a complete model number i am at a loss as to where to point you though.
enjoy, have fun.
