Well it is not the fuse becausae if it was it would not run. You need to replace the heating element most likely. Part number 5300622032 is the element restring kit on most of these dryers. To get to the heater you must pop the top and remove the front. Then access the rear hatch and remove the idler. Get out the drum and inspect the element. Easy fix! Start here

My dryer gets hot but doest dry my clothes i lifted the top and spun the barrell around and noticed that the seal is torn could that be the cause

Sounds like a belt problem with no clothes in the dryer turn the dryer on for a minute or so open the door if the drum is spinning it not belt if drum is not spinning it's more that likely the belt that turns the drum.also need to check the exhaust hose in back of dryer it could have a blockage check lint screen also.Hope this helps.

Dryer won't spin

Was the belt shredded ( normal wear & tear ) or burnt through which could be a drum bearing or support problem .What does the drum feel like when you turn it by hand is it grinding & lump ? The fact that the motor runs with no load could by the start device faulty these are reasonably cheap to replace this is the small cylinder attached to the side of the motor with two wire connections . if your motor has not got one of these then its the start windings in the motor

Dryer drum has become very stiff and won't turn smoothly.

OK, you will need to check the blower and the motor or any blockage. You have have an article of clothing hung in the blower or a dryer sheet on the motor etc... The best way to test the drum, blower and motor is to remove the belt and spin each one individually. Post back the results. I also have the service manual for that unit if you should need it.

Dryer won't spin

Someone is going to have to get inside to see if the belt (it should have one around the drum) is broken or the motor that drives it is seized, etc.

Need to see if drum turns and if too freely my money would be the belt.

Dryer wont turn on

try to spin the inner drum. You could have a broken belt. if it spins really easy, that's probably what it is. There should be some resistance when you turn it.

Samsung DV338aew does not get hot

I just took the front panel off of my Samsung dryer the belt is off. If you take the front panel off you won't believe what you will see it's so much dust... from all the clothes drying. Did you tried to take the front panel off? First turn off the switch to the dryer at the fuse box so there will be no power in there while you vacuum it out. As soon as I can put the belt on I will vacuum it thoroughly. I'm sure that is the reason why it the temp... is not hot enough.
Good luck.

Kenmore Heavy Duty Plus Dryer 86273100 drum won't spin

How could the belt be in working order if the drum doesn't spin? Check to see if the belt has come off the motor. If the motor runs but your dryer doesn't spin, the belt is off. If the motor runs with the belt on but it still won't spin then you'll have a lot of black smoke because your drum is jammed. In other words, there are a number of things that could be wrong, but not very many.

Ld lg3788w gas dryer drum won't turn

not a good model number,most likely you have a broken belt as long as it starts,heats but the drum doesn't spin,if you get a buzzing sound and it doesn't start you could have something stuck in the blower wheel,the motor is jammed or the motor is bad,you can open the door,push the door switch in,spin the drum with your other hand and have someone push the start button,if it starts you have a bad motor.
