I have an older (I bought it used 3-4 years ago) Whirlpool Duet dryer that started making a rumbling noise when it is on the drying cycle. Admittedly, it started off not too bad and I have been procrastinating and now it sounds like a jet engine whenever the dryer is running. It doesn't really squeak, that I can tell (although it is VERY loud so maybe I just can't hear the squeaking). I'm thinking it is the idler pulley or the drum roller but I REALLY am not excited about disassembling the entire dryer if it is somehow not the drum roller. I have attached a video.
