If the heater and blower work then th eprblem is with the drum turning system
This includes the motor ( which we will presume works because the blower does),the belt (Item #25 in the Cylinder, heater and bulhead diagram) and a spring and idler pully (Items 20 and 21 in the Base, Motor, and blower diagram)
Most likely problem is the spring broke releasing tension that halds the belt to the motor pully and drum. Second most likely is the belt has stretched.
You need to open the unit to determine where the problem lies.
Here are diagrams and parts listing for that machine.
the drum belt is more than likely broken. To access this area you will need to remove the back panel of the drier and there the motor and the belt assembly is. Take the model and serial number to an appliance part house for the correct replacement.
Try turning the drum by hand. If it spins easily with no resistance, the belt has failed. On the back of the appliance you should find a label identifying the Make, Model, and Serial Number. Take down all the information provided, and then find a local appliance shop that carries that brand. Order the new belt.
your belt has come off the drum or has broken. Take the model and serial number to parts house for replacement. The belt should be accessed through the back of the dryer. Good Luck on your repair. Make sure to disconnect electricty before removal of back.
Does the motor run? The path of the belt is a little tricky. You have to push a loop of the belt around the belt tightener and then over the motor pulley. The top of the belt loop will ride against either a rolling wheel, or a plastic guide made out of low friction plastic. The bottom of the loop of belt should only go over to the drum. The tensioner is held in place by a tab that fits into the bottom pan of the dryer.
