Question about Dryers
Sounds like the motor bearings are beginning to seize up from heat/age or the combination of both,remove the front and top cover to remove the drum if there is no access in the rear to remove the belt off the motor so you can start the dryer or free wheel the motor by hand and see if it is beginning to turn hard

If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things-
1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.
2. Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively.
3. Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker.
4. Motor wiring shorting to ground.
Hope this helps...
