I expected to find worn rollers or a bad belt, but after opening up the dryer the rollers and belt looked fine. Spinning the drum by hand I could tell the noises were coming from inside the blower assembly. After a bit more disassembly I found the blower wheel had worn completely round on its axle. No wonder the dryer was taking longer to dry clothes (as well as being noisy). I ordered the part from PartSelect on Saturday afternoon, it arrived on Tuesday and I installed it that evening. Dryer is now whisper-quiet - runs as good as new - for only $20 in parts and about an hour total.
