SOURCE: not drying in one cycle
pry the top up at the corners and then open the top. now look inside the front panel about 4 inches down on both sides and remove the 2 screws or hex heads holding the front to the cabinet. Remove door switch wires and remove front, carefull drum will drop slightly, you may want to lay it on it's back before removing front panel. from there if you have posted right or close to right model number, the 3 screws you see in the drum, remove them after undoing your belt. remember how you undo the belt so that you can put it back on the right way. Pull drum up out of cabinet and there you will see your heat element. from this site www.repairclinic.com it shows a double element. Might be only one half working causing the lenghthy dry time if this is bad replace it you'll know if one half is bad. Clean all you can while apart you can also slide out the rear bearing out of the bearing cup and apply some high temp grease there. If your element is good change the thermostat. from the looks of this belt make sure the grooves are facing up on the drum or it won't go back on right on the motor and tensioner pulley. I hope this helps you and Good luck.

You will have to access the dryer to clean the internal ductwork. If the venting is good, another thing that will cause a dryer to take a long time to dry is a faulty high limit thermostat. It is a small, round, black device mounted on a plate and attached to the internal ductwork with two screws. While inside, also check the thermal fuse and heating element. These can be checked with a multimeter or ohm meter for continuity. If a component does not have continuity, then it is defective and will need to be replaced. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.
Here is a pic of thermal fuse and high limit thermostat to help you out.

one of 3 things could be wrong/1)dry,tight motor bearings/2)drum bearing bad/3) bad motor windings,remove belt off drum and see if anything turns hard i.e. motor,drum each one isolated then run motor w/o drum belt on drum and see if motor gets overly warm or hot especially around the bearing ends
