I took apart the dryer by unscrewing the top and the front, front comes off by just undoing the two top screws on the inside. I figured it was something to do with the rollers since the noise was ciclycal. The hardest part was to put the drive belt back on. It helps to have a second person for about 5 minutes.

Remove front panel of dyer, pry open with srew driver,be careful not damage enamel. Remove drive belt, pull drum forward and out. Drum glide are located at bottom of drum rest,rollers at rear of dyer.
The repair was much easier than anticipated. Next time I could do it in less than 30 minuites. Replaced the axel that holds the rollers as well as the rollers. Just rotate the left one 90 degrees and it slides out.Probably what took the most time was puting the belt back on. It is old so I was being careful. It took a couple of trys to keep it on the rollers as I moved the drum into position. So easy I am convinced to buy another Maytag.Wife was impressed so that's worth something!
