Question about Whirlpool Dryers
Your problem could be a broken belt or a belt that has come off the motor or idler arm pulley.
Try this first:
Unplug the dryer, then reach inside and rotate the drum 1/4-1/2 turn.
Plug the dryer back in and push the start button. Sometimes this helps because a motor will get a dead zone in it and this will move it from the dead zone.
If that does not work, If you have a front loading machine:
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, motor, and idler arm with pulley.
While you have the drum out of the way, it is a good time to lube the drum rollers and check them for flat spots. Lube the drum rollers at the shaft with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil.
If the rollers have flat spots on the, then they will need to be replaced.
I hope this helps
