Dryer noisy

I have a Norge Dryer. When I turn it on it makes a very loud noise and vibrates very bad, almost like the drum is unlevel. the noise then tails off to an annoying constant rubbing squeaking sound. When the drum comes to a complete stop it makes a quick vibrating loud noise. It seems to be level and it didnt always do this (i moved in a year ago ). Can anyone tell me what most likely part to replace.
Thanks in advance

Hello: dontnt25

If you'll check back within this forums archives, you'll find a host of other postings with this exact problem. Reading thru them, you'll find the answers and the solutions to the problem.

Basically, you'll need to stop off at the local appliance retail parts store and purchase all the parts the drum rotates on. Locate the manufacturers I.D. plate and write down all the important information on the dryer before hand.

Once you have the required parts, you'll have to open up the cabinet, remove the drum and replace all the parts the drum rolls or slides on.

Regards & Good Luck
