The belt probably broke, and coincidentally happened while drying the shoes. The belt is easy to replace. Open the back and you'll probably see the belt laying on the bottom

Depends on what kind of noise...
-Repetative muffled creaking: Probably the metal drum sliding against the plastic mount that holds the front of the drum. It can be TEMPORARILY eliminated by disassembling the dryer and tampering with the felt strip so that the drum has more play and turns more freely. It does not indicate a major problem.
-Metal against metal scraping: Maybe the metal cabinet got bashed in just enough that the drum rubs against it? This kind of sound should be investigated and fixed.
(For what it's worth, my DPSE810EG4 does has the repetative muffled creaking.)

Theres two things to look at, the brushes on the motor, replaceable and cheap, if they are are healthy then there is one or sometimes two large capacitors, these give the motor the ooomf to get it rotating, these fail which is a common problem with washing machines and dryers, again about £5= on ebay.

If you hear the motor humming and not starting at all it most likely has a severe friction problem with the drum or motor. It could possibly have some type of garment jamming the blower wheel preventing the motor from starting too.
Open the dryer door and manually rotate the dryer drum counter clockwise (CCW). It should take very little effort to rotate the drum. If it's hard to rotate that could explain why the motor hums instead of starting up. If it turns freely, shut the door and see if will start. If it still hums and not start it may have bad motor or a low voltage supply to the motor.
