Maytag dryer noise

Have a mayag mede400xw0 front loading dryer that started making a horrible noise today.

Appreciate any assistance in what it could be.

My guess would be the belt, pulley or tensioner similar to the belt on an auto.

Sounds like the belt tensoner or rollers need a drop of oil. Not the easiest dryer to take apart. The top comes off than the controls, bottom panel, front, than the drum. If rollers are worn out replace them, ONE drop of oil on Axel. Here is the part # for the rollers Called support 8536973
While apart turn motor to see if it is the noise (not a common problem but bearing do go bad)
