Is the motor dying?
Yes; it could be.

Try turning the drum in the correct direction, it should turn fairly easily.
If not perhaps the drum is dragging and putting too much load on the motor.
You may want to try this on a couple other dryers just to get a feel for it.

Also check that the motor is free of dust/lint. Could be it is clogged solid with lint and is not cooling properly.
