Check the wheels that the tub is resting on for poor lubrication. Try to lift up the tub with something you can pry with. Just enough to take the weight off the wheel, one at a time and then turn by hand the wheel and see if it/they are dragging or jammed.
If you find one or more wheels jammed or dragging, then replace it/them and you should be good to go.
While you have your dryer all twisted and partially dismantled, take a few moments and clean out the LINT DUCT all the way from the TUB to ALL THE WAY outside the home. Damp lint does not move very well and if it has been collecting for months or years you could be clogging your dryer drum wheels, and/or the belt that turns the drum and setting yourself up for a nasty fire in your dryer, that could easily burn down your home. You may have to reroute your hose if you find ANY PLACE that the hose goes up hill or has a bunch of turns in it. Make sure the Duct is level, or slightly slopped down, and keep your turns to the very minimum. Changin direction of a Lint Duct might look cool, but every turn will cut your air flow by 40 percent. Does not take long for the lint to build up, and spark a fire and then it will get really unfriendly around your dryer.
This don't sound good most likely the motor is bad . OK first unplug the dryer take the belt off the motor now plug the dryer back in hit the start switch does the motor turn NOW??? If not its the motor. IF the motor does turn??? could be a weak motor OR Bad bearing in the Back of the tub.
Rotate the TUB by Hand UNPLUG THE DRYER FIRST. IF the tub Rotate freely I would say you
Have a bad Motor But if the tub is very hard to turn now your looking at a bad Bearing
GOOD LUCK HOPE THIS HELPS
May be the tub support rollers, If this is problem you will have to remove the tub. Then check rollers to see if they turn free. If not replace the faulty ones. This drag on the motor will cause it to get hot.
