Your rear drum bearing has worn through the plastic and is now hitting the metal support underneath it,
soon it will act like a guillotine and slice of the ball, the drum will fall backwards into the heating element and short to ground causing the fuse to blow the heater element to burn intwo and the whole thang will be dead in the water.

It may not be your heating element. Your dryer lint vent pipe out the back of the machine or maybe out the
side may be plugged. You have to pull the machine out and clear
that pipe or rebuild it out to a soffit vent or static vent if it is in
the attic, or out through your crawl space. This will make a huge
difference. If that hot air and moisture doesn't get out of the
machine it just goes back into your clothes.

9 out of 10 times this is due to a bad roller. This is not something you can do yourself. A stack model is just too complicated.

Check the house electrical panel for tripped dryer-circuit breaker-pair. Push off, then on. If immediately re-trips, the dryer has a dead short circuit in it. If they hold, then retry the dryer. If it now works, ok! If not, recheck the breakers as above. If tripped again, there is a likely short in the dryer's heater assembly. The drum must be removed to access the heater.

It is indeed a belt issue if the dryer blows hot air, which means the motor is running, but the drum does not turn. Otherwise, the thermal fuse (part number 3392519) mounted on the blower has failed. This thermal fuse is wired in series with the motor circuit and its failure results in the motor not running and the dryer not working at all.
Remove the dryer real panel to access the blower housing and check the continuity of the thermal fuse. Grab a volt-ohmmeter and set it to the R X 1 scale then disconnect one wire from the thermal fuse terminals then check the continuity of the thermal fuse. Replace the thermal fuse should it read open.
