Maytag Dryer Noise and Vibration

My Maytag electric dryer just started getting very loud when it runs, and the noise gets louder the longer it's on (and for some reason, seems a little louder when the dryer is on "air only"). It's also vibrating when it runs--so, for instance, a pile of papers I had on the dryer moved itself onto the washer next to it the last time I used the dryer! Up until now, the dryer has worked fine with no repairs needed in 10 years (perhaps because it doesn't get that much use). I wonder if there's anything simple I can check myself before calling a repair person. I'm not very handy, so I'll need an expert to do any repairs that involve moving or taking apart the dryer. But I'm wondering whether this is likely to be a major and costly appliance repair if I do call a repair person. I'd rather not have to buy a new dryer now, so if the repair were under $150 I'd probably pay for it. Any advice would be most appreciated. Thanks. marilano<!-- / message -->
