- It sounds like your unit may have one or more problems. Either the belt slipped off the idle pulley and/or dryer belt and needs replacing, a faulty motor or a common failure between control and motor. Consult a professional to accurately diagnosis the dryer and to assist with the repairs.
you will need to remove the lid,the the control panel then the front panel needs be removed then the drum need to come out depending on what fuse you are replacing. to remove the belt take off the small access panel on the rear and take the belt off the pulley.
ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch.
Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. You can now replace your belt but I recommend that you go a little farther.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.

Sounds like you have a broken belt. I had the same problem and replaced it myself. If you have someone handy at home, there are detailed instructions on the internet (just search) for replacing dryer belts for your model. That's what I did. A new belt costs about $13. If you need to call a service man in to replace, it might cost between $100 - $200.
