If you use fabric softener sheets in your dryer, they eventually will deposit enough residue in your lint trap to close up the mesh. Usually you cannot see the residue, although it is blocking the movement of air through it. My advise would be to remove the lint trap and run it under hot water and clean it well, then try the dryer with the clean lint trap. I hope this works for you and solves your problem.

If it were me, I'd probably just clean up the scratches on the pulley and or motor shaft. You can do so with a small file or sand paper. If you believe the friction caused by this roughens is due to the scratches, try smoothing them down. The grooves remaining won't harm the belt or pulley, but raised edges could. When I worked in an electric motor shop, we repaired many a motor shaft by filing the bad nicks caused by pliers and wrenches, with a little filing as the motor turned.

If you have time and don't want to spend money for appliance technician, lookup youtube videos on dryer repair for your model. You will need tools and patience and some help to move the dryer to a place where you can take it apart. My brother did this and was able to disassemble his dryer and put it back together and it works now. Not saying this will be a guaranteed success, but once you have it apart, you could theoretically replace the part that's not working.
