My GE Dryer (4years old) makes a loud rumbling noise while drying. It dries clothes just fine and there are no other issues, but the noise is rather loud-the dryer doesn't move or **** at all it's just the really loud rumbling sound. Any ideas????
I would check your blower wheel. I went through a similar situation after replacing the belt. It would start up and the rumbling was terrible (though it worked). I fooled around with the rollers. Then ran without the belt..it was apparent it had nothing to do with the barrel. Checked the blower and a couple of blades had broken off. It was enough to throw it out of balance. Slapped on a new blower fan..all is well.

All ge dryers have a center bearing on the back side of the drum and drum glides on the frontside. The glides make a scrubbing sound when bad and the drum is hard to turn. The rear bearing does a squeak thang when the plastic bearing wears thin and begins to make metal to metal contact between drum mount and rear bulkhead mount. It is an easy fix but the drum gotta come out. here is my pictorial page that shows how with videos and repair pix: Paw Paws GE dryer repair page
