Amana gas dryer very noisy

The problem is this: the longer it runs, the louder it gets. Not a thump-thump-thump loud.
Not a squealing high-pitched noise. Just an overall, exponential increase in volume.
It becomes LOUD.
This might be a clue: I've had washer problems recently, where the washer wasn't spinning at the end
of the cycle. Hence, clothes were still soaked and heavy. Most times, we were able to coax the washer
into spinning, but I'd bet sometimes clothes were put into the dryer that were still sopped with water
and VERY heavy.
The noisiness of the dryer didn't start until after the issue with the washer began. Prior to our washer
problems, the dryer was nice and quiet.
That's the only clue I've got. Whatdya think?

was a DEFINITE thump-thump-thump. This isn't the same sound. It's just a loudness thing.
Like it has a volume switch and somebody kicked it up to "11"

compared to the last. It starts to get louder at about the 3:10 mark, which is about 30, maybe
35 minutes intoi the drying cycle.

The motor's behind it. Now what? Do I take the drum off?
