Re: Dryer will not spin, belt is not lose
Take off the back and you should see the motor. You can also lean it over on the frontside and get to the motor. If your drum is not turning and the belt is not loose, then the problem lies in the axle or sprocket the drum turns on. It may have seized up and needs to be lubricated. Check your motor and see that it runs.

Do you hear the motor running? If so then it is probably just the belt that has broken...if there is no motor spinning, then the motor may have become defective or the start capacitor may be bad causing the motor to not start
There are two options on why your dryer would stop turning. 1. Your dryer motor quite 2. the dryer belt either came off or broke. you will need to take the dryer apart to see if the belt is broken. if not than it is your motor.

The belt has groves, right? Make sure the groves go over the motor pulley from the right. The idler pulley is spring loaded. Place the belt around the idling pulley with the smooth side of the belt on the pulley. This should work.
Hello vanessastar3. Your dryer may have a motor mount with cushion or spring mounts and they may have grown weak with age. If the dryer performes substantially this maybe the lose point. Check your belt route most units have a flate spring supported roller and this maybe your weak spot. I will need Mgfr. & model# to be more pin point to the problem area if these suggestions don't correct the problem. Have fun.
