For the benefit of others I dismantled the above dryer and found one of the worst messes in my experience and thought I would pass it on. The plastic blower wheel was almost melted as was about half the plastic blower housing. The wheel was apparently jammed against the housing and held from rotating due to a lot of foreign material. The t-stat on the front side of the housing then shorted and things went downhill from there . I doubt it can be repaired at a reasonable cost. The heating coil suprisingly Was still usable.
