Maytag centennial dryer is making loud banging noise while drying. What could be the problem? I can attach a video of the problem if needed.
Thanks.

How do I find the model number? Until I can find the model number I have a link to a picture of the dryer: https://imgur.com/a/yJ3GX

How do I attach video? Should I zip the video file and upload it?
Thanks.

You can find the model and serial number label on the door frame.

I upload videos to YouTube or a service like Photo Bucket and then post a link.

Remove the front panel and drum as described in the attached instructions.
Inspect the front bearings and rear drum support rollers. Any worn out parts would need to be replaced.
You can find the correct part numbers in the following diagrams. Let us know if you'll need to locate correct part numbers.

Here are the diagrams for the Maytag dryer Model MEDC215EW0

Also check the drum to make sure there is no part of it that is damaged where it contacts the rollers/bearings.
