Question about Whirlpool Dryers
It could be that the motor/drum belt has slipped off the pulley, or has broken.
You can unplug the dryer and pull it out from the wall and remove the rear access panel to see if you can see the belt and whether it has broke or slipped off the motor pulley.
If you need to get a replacement belt, you can get locally or online at several sources. If you want to attempt the repair yourself, you might want to look at how your dryer is put together. Go to searspartsdirect.com and enter in the full model number of your dryer and you'll see what it looks like and see a list of all available parts,
Just so you know, it will take some time to disassemble the dryer in order to get the belt installed and you'll likely need a hand getting the belt onto the drum once you get everything taken apart.
Hope this helps and best regards!

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.
