My GE electric dryer, model #DDE5300VALWH, is acting strangely.  Sometimes it will spin normally, sometimes when you push the switch it makes a sound like a locked-up motor.  I pulled it out from the wall and tried it and the sound seems to be coming from the control panel area and not the motor.  It seems to happen when it is warm or has run for a while.  Any advice before I tear apart the control panel?

I plan to give everything a good vacuuming tonight after work and see if that helps.  Belt looks good, drum turns.  When it's working, it seems normal.  I'm a bit baffled.

Thanks in advance.

Jeff

The vacuuming might help, also make sure the blower area is clear. Does sound like a possibility of a motor that's not long for this world.

Dryer disassembly help here.
