When you had the drum out did you spin the motor pulley? Did it spin free?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Yes I vaccumed all the lint off of the motor, spun the pully and it seemed fine, no binding.

What you are discribing is a bad motor. The motor is the hardest repair to do on your dryer. Some times the blower wheel will have to be chisled off also. The unit does not look like a higher end unit it may be better to replace the unit if it is over 8 years old.
