Welcome to the world of appliance repair. A dryer is a good place to start. Check Repairclinic.com for parts and help, it's a good site. You're going to have to take the dryer all apart. The trickiest part is the belt. Note how it goes, or you're doomed. While in there, vacuum all the lint, it's a fire hazard, and gets into places it doesn't belong. Use a high temp grease on the roller shafts, and replace the belt while you're at it, they are cheap. The glides and felt need to be in top shape, they keep the dryer from eating clothes. On some models you need to pop the top. Use a putty knife to push the spring catches at the front corners. Inspect all around for bearings and things that might wear out.
