Thanks for using FixYa. It might be due to broken belt because it turns the clothes drum. If it is broken, the drum stops rotating. You’ll need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time. Also check the Motor if it is working. If the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out. Remove the belt. Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing. Manually rotate the shaft of the motor. If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor. If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the dryer and try it again. If the motor hums but doesn't rotate on its own even with the belt removed--yet you can turn it freely by hand--you usually need to replace the motor or the motor start capacitor.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
