Hi,
The most common problem is with the belt drive.
Try this test. - Open the door, rotate drum by hand - is it free to rotate without any noise of driving the motor around? - If it is - order a new belt for it.
If you can hear the motor turning, try running the machine again. If movement is erratic - you need replacement motor brushes.
If you think the motor is dead, it may be - or there may be a fault on the control board. Both need testing to see. Usually one will need replacement.

GE 5 Cycle Automatic Heavy Duty Extra Large loud noise


All ge dryers have a center bearing on the back side of the drum and drum glides on the frontside. The glides make a scrubbing sound when bad and the drum is hard to turn. The rear bearing does a squeak thang when the plastic bearing wears thin and begins to make metal to metal contact between drum mount and rear bulkhead mount. It is an easy fix but the drum gotta come out. here is my pictorial page that shows how with videos and repair pix:

Hot point dryer drum does not turn, but the dryer will heat?


That might be bad glides on the front. Newer models have glides on top of the drum while older models have glides on the bottom. Both are easily replaceable. The belt might be broken because of the glides.
Not all hotpoint dryers are built the same but I made a few videos of these dryers to give an idea how to get into them:

Where do I find the heating element in my hotpoint dryer


Heating element is behind the drum. Disconnect power. Use putty knife to release 2 spring clips holding top at front edge of dryer. Swing top back. Remove two screws holding dryer front to sides near open top. Swing dryer front to the side. (you don't have to disconnect the door switch wires) Remove plastic tub block at top center of opening. Release belt. Pull up on back of drum, then pull drum out through the open front of dryer.

Aquarius 1200 wd62 - Dryer not working


Most likely it is some sort of blockage in the vent, although it could be a bad blower. Check the lint filter and vent openings for a blockage.

Drum in dryer not turning but still heat


Sounds like you need a new dryer belt, call sears for new belt. Install the new belt around the drum and to the motor located near the bottom of the machine.
