Kenmore 80 series dryer drum won't turn

After drying a down coat with a tennis shoe in the dryer to fluff the down, my dryer drum stopped turning. It will heat but won't turn. What would you suggest?

    Yes, I can hear the motor running. The dryer is an electric dryer, if that makes a difference.

I was drying my tennis shoes in a pillow case. The shoes pillow case and 3 towels were in the dryer, I had a smell like belt burning turned it off immediately. LG Stackable Dryer.

I'd think unlikely to be belt, as that is only a drive connection. Remove back panel and take a look at the pulley. It might be the casting off center

Dryer won't start. was drying a load and had a pair of tennis shoes in with the clothes. It stopped and now won't start back up. All lights, beeps etc. seem to work fine just won't start.

As silly as this seems, did you make sure the door is completely closed. This is a common problem when drying tennis shoes. One time when I was living in an apt. complex, I went to check on my laundry, and my shoes were lying on the floor (with a couple of other fabrics). I then stood by and watched the remainder of the cycle, and next thing you know - the door opens up and throws out my shoes. Never would've believed it unless I seen it with my own eyes. I would turn everything off, and then go through your regular routine. If this doesn't work, feel free to contact me - and we can go to Plan B...:) Good Luck to you, Jim

Dryer drum stopped rotating, dryer blower continues to work.

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

Thumping noise in atlantis dryer after drying heavy mattress pad

Have you husband do a visual inspection of the drum and literally feel it to see if anything is caught or stuck on the drum. The motor also may have something caught in it as well. This would be the motor that turns the drum.
