Possibly something in blower housing. If bound would case belt to burn on motor pulley.

Pop the top and then remove front panel. Blower housing is right there. Don't be surprised when you see a snake or rat.

Or the wheel itself loose. Typical of these dryers.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL
