It turns out that only one of the wheels was bad but I changed both. However, the real problem was the dryer barrel was rubbing on the housing of the motor. The applicance was used when I bought it and was obviously worked on previously and the motor was re-installed in the wrong rotation. I rotated the motor and that solved the problem. I think the cause for the noise is that, with age, and wear on the wheels, eventually allowed the barell to sag and rub on the motor housing. I did not change the belt, becasue the other one still works.
Thanks
