I diagnosed the problem with the dryer as being a bad blower wheel. Ordered the wheel and replaced easily. Removed front of dryer, removed front drum support and ductwork, removed wiring shield for heating element and then had full access to the blower wheel to replace. Used spring ring pliers to remove spring ring, then removed retaining clip for blower wheel. Wheel slipped off shaft easily and I was able to reverse process to replace the wheel.
