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
