IF you have removed the entire shoelace and it is now free and clear to turn by hand and is really easy to turn it may have burned a belt. IF it is belt driven which most are? Contact your repair guy and ask if your brand make and model is belt driven? IF it is chances are that is the problem.
Good Luck

The dryer keeps shutting down the code E68 flashes on the control board dryer won't shut off, have to turn the breaker off

E68 is a stuck button on the control.

Take a very hot damp wash cloth and go over the control panel to loosen up the sticky button.
If you are storing detergents on top of machine remove them to prevent sticky buttons.

Whirlpool dryer is not drying

the heater could be bad but you need a volt tester to check there are thermastats and thermal fuses that can stop the heat as well as the breaker the unit may run but not heat if one side of the breaker is triped or bad
