It sounds like either the belt broke or fell off, or something is jamming the drum. The noise sounds like one of the screws that holds one of the tumblers inside the drum has backed out and is hitting the side walls when turning. You'll want to pull the dryer forward and remove the screws coming in from the back of the top panel. The top panel will then pull straight back, up, and off. Now you can turn the drum manually and tighten any screws around the drum that may be sticking out or tell if the belt is broken/loose around the drum and needs to be replace or re-installed.
