Definitely sounds like a timer problem. Sears Parts Direct should have your part. The model # you supplied is incomplete to determine if you have a gas or electric dryer. Check the model # again and go to Sears page to find the correct part.

Is the motor getting hot or is the element not shutting off?
If it is the motor then it is going bad...
If it is the element then the thermostat is bad and will just heat till the high limit shuts it down...then replace the thermostat and the high limit now that it has been activated...

There is a small plastic T-Bearing at the rear/center of the drum that often wears that could cause the noise.
Easy to replace,but be sure to add a little grease to it before putting drum back in.
At times it could also be the front drum glides,or even the plastic Idler wheel.

Look closely at them all when you have the drum out.

All these parts are relatively cheap to purchase.

Check the electic first. Check the thermal limit fuse. clean the machine of all lint. If the coil is bad you will see it is broken (burnt in two).

that could be anything you just have to unplug the dryer and get in there and see what happened,the belt pulley could have failed and jamming up the belt,first off does the dryer start?if so and the drum isn't spinning then the belt could be broke but this says it's a g.e. dryer so this has a safety switch in it that won't let the dryer run if the belt breaks,also g.e. has a rear bearing that fails,did you hear any sounds before like metal on metal,this could be alot of things,there's a front bulkhead with glides on it,i've seen the drum cut through the front of the dryer before, if you write back send the brand name and model number and anything else you heard before or take it apart and see what's up.if the dryer has alot going on with it don't buy another g.e. dryer get a whirlpool.
