Hello, I'm Joel thank you for your interest in our service. If

you have been waiting a while I apologize we try to help as

many customers as possible in a timely manner. I am now

It could be stopped up with lent not allowing the air to vent properly, but most probably the blower wheel has busted and is slipping on the motor shaft. Give me a minute and let me pull up your model.

Here is the parts diagram for your dryer diagram. The blower wheel is listed as 37 on the diagram. You will need to examine the blower wheel and the exhaust vents to find out if its just clogged or if its the blower wheel malfunctioning. If you would like to try and tackle this I will be glad to try and help you.

Ok because this is a little bit of a detailed job, instead of trying to explain how to do this in chat, this video will show you step by step how to take the dryer apart and get to the blower wheel housing. VIDEO.
