Perch,  sounds to me that your drum support bearing broke,  it's a nylon piece that the shaft support rests in when turning.  It's located at the rear of the dryer.   To replace this the top and front must be removed.  The belt taken off and the drum lifts up from the support.  Then the support bearing is replaced along with the bearing bracket.  You would have to inspect the shaft support to see if it's ok,  this is what rests in the bearing support and mounts to the drum,  but you should be ok with this.  For an experienced tech,  its not too hard,  just depends how mech.  inclined you are.  Part # are....drum support bearing  WEO3x1002.   Bearing bracket....WE13x10009.   Shaft support if you need it...WE13x10011...Ron
