Take the bottom of the back panel off and you can see the motor and belt pulley. Start the dryer and you will be able to determine the problem. (belt slipping or motor not turning) Dont get you hands near the motor.

It could be possibly your rear roller bearings expanding with heat causing them to not spin as freely? Im not really too sure but its an idea you dont have many moving parts on the unit. Just your idler pulley, blower wheel, and rollers. Hope this helps.

My dryer keeps breaking the belts for no reason. I am going to take it outside and beat it with a 10 LB sledge hammer and set it on fire!
