dryer vibration


I just replaced the drum glides on our frigidaire electric dryer and I am getting a vibration from the motor. I'm pretty handy and do most of my own repairs but I am stumped on why this would start now after fixing the guides. I took the the belt off from the idler pulley and motor and the noise is coming from the motor. It does it as it warms up. Can the bearing be replaced or does the motor and all need replaced?
