Question about Whirlpool Dryers
Thanks for using FixYa. If the drum can be turned easily then the belt is broken. The belt might break due to damaged felt kit, stiff idler roller or worn drum rollers. But as you said that the belt is not seems to be broken then the motor is burned. When you start the unit and if you hear a humming clicking sound then the motor has gone bad. Remove belt from motor pulley and start dryer to see if it still make a humming clicking sound. Check that the thermal fuse is not open and check the continuity with ohm meter. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
