If the belt is broken, you can first check by removing the lower panel under the door. There are a couple of tabs in the front, about 3inches in from each side. Place a putty knife in the seam and push straight in while pulling out on the panel at the same time. The tabs should release from each side and you will be able to lower the panel to look inside. If the belt is broken, you will be able to see it with no problem. To replace the dryer belt, follow these steps: 1. Unplug the machine or turn off the main breaker. There are still live voltages present with the machine turned off. 2. Remove the bottom panel. 3. Remove the top panel. This can be accomplished on a couple different ways depending on the model you have. a. Facing the dryer, grasp the rear corner of the top panel on either side and pull towards you. This will release the plastic tabs and the panel should lift up and can be rested against the wall. You may have to slide the dryer out some to make sure the top stays in the rested position. b. The other method involves taking the dryer console off. There will be three screws that you will have to remove. The top will slide towards you and off. 4. Remove the front panel by following these steps: a. You will need to remove the door switch connector first, followed by the door springs on each side at the bottom. Remember, how they go back on. This is an important step later. If you forget, the door will fall open when you go to use it. The springs provide tension to prevent this. b. Take the lint screen out. c. Disconnect the moisture sensor wire (usually yellow and red in color) and ground wire (green) from the bottom of the panel. Remember to reconnect these. d. Remove the air vent housing under the front panel by removing 2 - 3 screws. e. There should be four screws remaining in the panel to remove. Take the bottom screws out first, followed by the top. The front panel should now come off. 5. Remove the drum. If the belt is broken this should be fairly easy. This would be a good time to oil those drum rollers in the back with some light machine oil, and to remove any lint or dirt. Only lubricate the spindle of the rollers where they meet the shaft. DO NOT put oil on the rollers themselves. This will cause slippage. 6. Wrap new belt around drum with the groove side down. Using the belt as a handle around the drum place the entire drum back in the casing. This can be tricky, but is easy if you follow these steps: a. Looking at the drum rollers, the right one can slide forwards and backwards, the left one stays stationary. Pull the right roller to it's forward most position. b. Using the belt as a handle with one hand, grab the front rim of the drum with the other hand. Insert the back of the drum on to the rollers by tilting the drum down to make sure the roller fits into the groove along the back of the drum. Carefully lift the drum into place and rotate CW a little to make sure the rollers seats in the drum groove and to make sure the drum seal does not fold inside in the drum. c. Now, here's the tricky part; getting the belt back on. There should be an idler pulley for the belt. It probably fell off if the belt broke. Re-insert the idler by placing into the slots in the casing bottom. The pulley should be pointed TOWARDS the drum. Now...this will take two hands. You will need to lie in the prone position and rest the drum on your left shoulder to keep it from falling off the rollers. A second person would be a big help at this time. Holding the pulley wheel in your LEFT hand, push up and to your RIGHT while keeping it seated in the mounting slots. This keeps tension on the pulley and will enable you to weave the belt UNDER the pulley wheel with your RIGHT hand and on to the drive motor shaft. If you do this correctly the smooth side of the belt will ride UNDER the pulley wheel. 7. Supporting the drum, place the front panel back in place. Re-install everything in the reverse order that I described before. Remember to re-install the door springs, the moisture sensor wire, ground wires and the door switch connector. These are easy to forget. I know this seems like a lot for dryer belt, but it can be done if you take your time and follow these steps. If you have any questions let me know.

Clothes dryer drum will not spin. open it up and belt looks ok. now what?

You need to check the blower fan and make sure there's no obstructions (you probably would have noticed by now though).
Remove the belt from the motor pinion and try to rotate the shaft of the motor manually. To remove the belt, you will need to relieve the tension of the belt by moving the idler pulley over to slip the belt off. If it is stiff, or almost impossible to rotate manually, the blower fan housing is clear, then you need to replace the motor. IF.........
The motor shaft rotates freely, try to run the motor with the belt removed. If it does run with the belt removed, then you need to check the idler pulley and the drum itself. The idler pulley is the little wheel that the belt runs around to keep tension on the belt. It may be stiff or frozen.
If you've gotten this far, try to rotate the drum by hand, if it is difficult to do, focus your attention to the rollers and pulley.
If the motor doesnt rotate, even with the belt removed, yet you can turn it freely by hand. You usually need to replace the motor or the motor start capacitor.
I hope that you have found this helpful.

You broke the belt. To replace it, pop the top ... use a screw driver. Remove the screws at the top of the front, remove the front, the drum will fall free. Take Pictures.

I have provided a checklist courtesy of;
They also provide repair parts, disassembly diagrams and procedures.

You can also checkout for other appliance help websites.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.
If your dryer doesn't tumble, check these:

Door switch
Belt Dryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time.

Click here for a belt installation diagram.

Motor If the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out. Here's how to test the dryer motor:

  • Remove the belt.

  • Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing.

  • Manually rotate the shaft of the motor.

If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor.

If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the dryer and try it again.

If the motor hums but doesn't rotate on its own even with the belt removed--yet you can turn it freely by hand--you usually need to replace the motor or the motor start capacitor.

Drum does not rotate

The drum rotates due to a belt that goes around the drum and is driven by a small motor. The most likely answer is that the belt broke. This a common problem on an older dryer. It is relatively easy to replace the belt.

Whirlpool dryer heats but the drum doesn't rotate

There is usually a large belt that goes around the drum to turn it is either fallen off the motor pulley , broke .....or the motor may be gone in it ....not sure if there are any fuses for the motor on your dryer .
If you can tip the dryer over the bottom is usually open and you can see the motor and belt from there
