When the dryer noise grew to an unbearable level, professional opinion indicated that it was "definitely" caused by the drum support rollers. First I ordered the wrong rollers and Parts Select was kind enough to let me return them. Then I got the right parts and with internet-sourced instructions, they were relatively easy to replace, although it did require removal of the drum. But that didn't solve the problem. Another round of research said that the noise was "probably" the blower fan. I ordered the right fan and in much less time than it took to install the support rollers, I put in the new blower fan (it didn't require removal of the drum). That solved the problem. While the support rollers may wear out, I strongly suggest that you look at the blower fan first when the dryer makes too much noise. It's a cheaper and easier repair and that part is more likely to cause the rumble.
