Dryer disassembly help here:

After you get the drum out, look at the motor. If the ends are packed with lint, the motor bearings are probably shot. Also check the blower impeller.

   You won't need to use much Force but you will need to strive to be at oneness with the Force.  Use a small flat screwdriver to pry off the "E-clip" that is snapped around the drum shaft sticking out of that little rectangular hole.  Let it and the washers fall.  You don't need them.

   Vacuum your dryer and dryer motor as well as you can.  Then if you are able BLOW the motor out as well as you can.   Sometimes this is all it takes.  Other times you'll need to replace the motor.  The blower wheel is attached to the front motor shaft.  It's in that hole on the front left of your machine.
