Dryer churning type noise

I have a electric dryer which has started to give a noise as if metal is touching something i.e. churning with every turn of the drum. Does anyone know what this might be and how it can be DIY handled.

Thanks all!

The dryer is GE 5 cycle Model: PVXR353EB0WW

hope this information is enough. it heats up for churning/clunking noise is not friendly to normal operation.

Could not make model # work please check. GE dryers are known for wearing out the front plastic bearings, Have to take off the front to check. 2 screws in door opening top (long screws) top will lift off and slide to front , some have slots that need to be slide right or left after it is out of rear clips. couple os screws inside and front will lean out , Don't pull hard as there are wires that need to unplug( mark wires as easy to mix up. usually the plastic parts will need to be changed.

The model number looks to be PVXR353EBWW. It shows as a discontinued GE dryer sold only in Canada. Our parts companies don't show Canadian appliances.

I tried to get info from General Electric.ca but was not successful.
Apparently Camco handles the GE servicing in Canada. You might want to contact them directly.
