I had a repair manual on the dryer and concluded it was probably the blower. This was confirmed when I disassembled the front of the dryer without pulling it out from the wall. - Which is difficult because this is a stacked system in a bathroom closet. I took my time made a local call...this SG1000 Magtag has no parts. They suggested on line and I googled the model number and ended up on this site. It was great and I got the part in 3 days. FIxed it and it worked. While at it I put in a new felt seal and have a spare drum roller for the future. - Rollers are more difficult to get at so I curbed my ambition.
I was a bit aprehensive because the diameter if my blower measured slightly smaller than the 8 inch blower shown on the web page. However it was correct after all and my wife is happy happy and the dryer sounds like new.
