It probably needs a belt. Changing the belt on a dryer is a pretty simple job if you have some mechanical aptitude. The new belt is around $20 and you can save a good bit over a service call if you can try it yourself. Here is a website with good illustrated instructions as well as parts. You can also do a search on Google for "replacing belt" and your particular make and model for more information.

Remove the screws and tilt the front panel forward. Mark and remove the wires going to the lid switch. Remove the front panel. Remove and discard the old belt. Slide the new belt over the drum with the grooves on the belt facing the drum. Reassembe the front panel of the dryer and replace the wires onto the door switch.

Need to change the belt, for model # LER3624JQ0


To change the belt on a whirlpool dryer first unplug the dryer
  1. Remove the lint screen and take out the two screws.
  2. Take a 1 inch paint scraper and insert it between the top and the cabnet about 2 inches from the corner to release the spring clips holding the top in place.
  3. Swing the top back and rest it against the wall.
  4. Looking down inside holding the front dryer panel on,there is a screw on both sides. Remove these screws and tilt the dryer front forward seperating the front from the dryer drum.
  5. Mark the wires going to the lid switch and remove the wires.
  6. Lift the dryer front off and out of the way.
  7. On some Whirlpool dryers there is an access door at the rear lower corner of the dryer. Remove this door and observe how the belt goes on. If the belt is broken it is easier to replace the belt if you can access it through this panel. Some newer dryers have no panel and the belt has to be replaced from the front.
  8. Remove the drum and do a complete cleaning of all lent.
  9. Check to see that the two rollers on the rear panel of the dryer turn freely. If the don't , replace them. (Clean and lubricate the shafts.
  10. Check to see if the idler pulley moves freely. If it doesn't replace.
  11. Positoin the belt over the drum where the marks are where the old belt was and put the drum into the dryer
  12. Pinch the belt and position it threw the idler pulley and over the motor shaft pulley.
  13. Reinstall the front panel with the two screws removed. Lock the top down and reinstall the two screw from under the lint screen. Reninstall the lint screen. Plug dryer in and test.

Dryer heats but drum does not turn when the start button is pushe


You need to check the drum belt. With dryer empty, reach in and give it a spin. If the belt is good, it will stop in 1/2 turn or less when released. If the belt broke, it will spin almost a full turn.
