Its either a belt, roller bearings, the tensioner, or the bearings in the motor.
Each is replaceable, but to find out the problem you are having, you will need to remove the panels of the dryer and inspect each one.
hope this helps

maybe call a generic appiance store other than sears, try maytag store. the knob pulls staight off and the timer nut is below. then take off the back cover off the control panel, sometimes those screws are on the front corners, sometimes hidden. take a picture of the timer wiring and tape and label all the wires before you remove it. unplug it first!!

The most likely problem based on your description is the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is either located at the front or the back depending on the model number, but in any case it will be located on the exhaust housing and look`s like a small disc or thin pin shape ( see image below ) with 2 wires going to it and white in color.
If you can reply with an actual model number I can be more specific. This should move you forward though. Thank you for coming to "fixya" for your repair inquiries and good luck.
