Noisy, the Blower Fan had sheared loose from the shaft
Easy enough to take apart, but the nut was stuck on the motor shaft. I had to remove the motor from the dryer. Chisel away the remaining plastic on the nut. And then get two pipe wrenches (one for front and back) to get the nut off. The reassembly was easy.

Dryer would goet hot and drum would tumble but would not dry clothes. No air comeing out of vent.
I removed the two front panels. The fan was behind the lower panel and by removing the cover over the fan, I could see that it had separated from the center hub and would not spin. I removed the drum and belt, then took out the two bolts holding the front of the motor base in place and slide the motor out. What made the job difficult was that the center hub was frozen to the motor shaft. Lots of WD-40, tapping on the shaft and leaving it upright to let the WD-40 soak in overnight. Using a 12 point 7/8" socket resulted in almost stripping the plastic hub nut (with metal core threaded onto the motor shaft). I purchased a 6 point socket and still almost stripped it (using the jack handle over the wrench). I put a cotton cloth over the nut and tried again with success. The rest of the job was easy. I took pictures of the wires so that I would get them back where they belonged during re-assembly. It really was an easy job with just bad luck on the frozen fan nut on the shaft. When you put the drum back in, drape the belt over it first and then slip it under the tensioner pulley and then over the motor pulley.

Building Noise as unit Heated up .
After replacing everything but the Fan , I replaced it ! How did I find out? I run the unit with the Gas valve unhooked . The heat was Warping the Fan throwing it out of balance ..Thats why as it got Hot the noise got louder . Replacing the fan salved the problem . That was my sons Dryer . Well I have one just like it at the same age . I've got all of the spare parts to fix it , motor included !
