It sounds like a training is running.

Could very well be something in the blower then.

If there is a lot of lint build up stuck to the blower wheel it will throw it off balance causing it to make a lot of noise.

I checked the blower wheel and it looks fine.  There were no lint in the compartment.  There were two small metal pieces outside the blower wheel compartment where the connection with the tube is (the tube that leads the air to outside the house).  The two small metal pieces are sections of a pull tab of a zipper.

I also realized that both the front and back tri-rings of the left support roller were broken. It looks like that it needs replacement.  Do you think this is the cause of the noise? 

Many thanks.

No it does not.  I'll replace the support rollers, the belt, and clean up the blower wheel compartment. Will see if this works. Thank you.

I changed everything using the maintenance kit, cleaned the blower wheel compartment, and it works like charm.  No more loud noises and if running without a load, it is really minimal noise, very smooth.  Thank you all for your help.

May I ask where to buy the spring for the front door of the dryer?  One of the two broke and I need to replace it.  Thank you.
