    Thanks for the help - but you didnt fully answer my question. Do you think it is the belt that is my problem? I am just guessing - because it wont spin now and was working fine. It does heat and make a noise like it is running - just not turning. Also I heard that you have to take the drum out to install the belt - is that true?

Easy fix.
Open the top cover by insrting a putty knife in the top right and left sides where the top meets the bottom cabinet.
Lay the top to the back.
Remove 2 screws on the right and left front inside corners of the cabinet.
Remove the door.
Replace the belt around the drum and motor pulley.
Re-assemble the dryer.

    The only answer I know without being there is the one I gave.

    Open the top lid and see if the belt is around the drum.

    If you do not see a belt it is broken.

Model PYE2300 AYW the dryer turns on and provides heat but the drum does not spin


your belt has come off the drum or has broken. Take the model and serial number to parts house for replacement. The belt should be accessed through the back of the dryer. Good Luck on your repair. Make sure to disconnect electricty before removal of back.
