Check to make sure your child lock is off first. Hold the time and signal buttons simultaneously for three seconds. Unlikely, but do check. Some of these dryers have a safety switch that the idler pulley has to engage to allow the dryer to run. I tried to find a schematic for this model but could not get one to tell if you do have a safety switch. Look at the arm of the idler pulley and see if it is contacting the switch actuator correctly. When a belt breaks or pops off, sometimes the arm of the pulley will move to the other side of the switch actuator and will not allow the dryer to run once a belt is reistalled. I would also look to see if a wire was knocked off of the motor switch when your belt came off. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Your best bet is to buy a service manual, so it will tell you everything you need to know about servicing your dryer...
You can get one at this webpage...

Hello, welcome to FixYa.
Based on your post, you have a Samsung dryer and the belt has come off.
I've seen this many, many times...though the belt usually doesn't break it just comes off. Very common for Samsung dryers for whatever reason.
**Unplug the unit before proceeding...safety first**...
The good news is if you can get to it from the back you can simply remove the small panel around the exhaust tube as shown here,
if it's not accessible from back you'll need to go from the front...that's do-able too, just a little more involved. Let me know.
Once in the back the belt should look like this when routed properly, with the "V" grooves towards the drum and motor pulley.
Hope that moves you forward...or even better, fixed up.
Let me know what you find. I will try to help in any manner I can of course as well. Good luck.

1) On the back where the Vent comes out you have 4 total screws. 3 of them are on the outside edge and the fourth is more of a middle mount that holds the tube to this bracket. Remove all four screws now you can lift and lean this plate to remove it.
2) This will also free up the vent tube and it can be pulled and cleaned also if you desire.
3) With these items out of the way you can now access the pulley for the belt and other items.
