From the sound it made I thought it was the rear rollers. That happened once before on another dryer.
After removing all the parts I foung out they were fine.
First unplug the dryer:
Then remove the dryer front door panel.
2 screws at the bottom of the door.
Lift cover from the bottom of the door, it is kind of on a top hinge.
On the bottom left hand corner you will see the plastic cover for the blower. It has 6 small screws that hold the cover on.
Once the cover is off you will see the blower wheel.
Use a pair of Snap Ring Pliers to remove snap ring at end of the shaft.
Use a pair of needle nose pliers to remove the clamp around the blower wheel that holds it onto the shaft.
Slip off the old part.
That was the rumbling noise.
