Question about Dryers
Drum light went out and dryer spins with door open. replaced bulb, will not light..
The fact that the light bulb is out *and* the drum continues to spin when the door is opened - all point to a faulty door switch.
This switch tells the machine the "status" of the door position. When the door is open, it turns on the light *and* stops / prevents the drum from starting. When closed, the light is shut off *and* the drum is permitted to spin. You should have the switch serviced as if a wire came loose it adds a potential shock hazard - in addition to the safety issue of placing hands into a spinning drum.

SOURCE: dryer spins counter clockwise
When installing new belt the belt comes off the right side of the drum and through the idler and around the motor shaft, then up the left side

I had the same problem......and found a bird stuck in the fan near the motor....Got it out my self by taking off the top hood and unscrewing a few screws at the bottom to loosen the duct from the metal. Now it works fine.

belt tensioner could have a broken spring on it or motor is going bad. It could be a problem with the belt being stretched or oily but probably not- check first.
