Default Whirlpool Roper dryer thumping

I tilted my dryer forward this morning so I could take off the back to replace the thermal fuse. Now when it runs, the tub makes a thumping sound like the older dryers that had rollers would make when roller was bad. Any ideas? I couldn't find a tag with the model #. Thanks

I would try pushing the drum back into position while turning it. Assuming it changed positions when tilted forward.
