Question about Whirlpool Dryers
If the motor doesn't turn then the bearings have dried up and it seized. As this point the start winding likely overheated and it would blow a thermal cutoff inside the motor as well. Replace the motor.

soulds like the fuse in the unit overloaded, fluff or oter items may have fallen onto the element, or the unit was overloaded, and the belt was slipping on the motor drive pulley. check for rubber drive belt debri. replace damaged items as required.

Hi, You need to check and see if the belt has slipped off of one of the pulleys. Was the idler the wheels style or a glide style?
Make sure the grooves in the belt are facing the drum and they are in the grooves of the motor pulley.
Please let me know if this helps and if I can assist you further.

SOURCE: how do you check the belt?
You will have to lift the top to check the belt and also for access to change it. Burning could also be lint or wires so if it was not the belt make sure you find the reason and repair that carefully.
