Question about Whirlpool LEW0050P Electric Dryer
It sounds like you have some experience, which is good. Take the front of the dryer off and remove the belt from the motor and idler pulley. See if u can spin the motor shaft. Chances are it is tight and or stuck completely. You should be able to spin the motor shaft with ease and it keep spinning for a few seconds. If it gives you any sort of resistance, it is dead. It looks like the part number for that motor is 8182471. Unfortunately, it is expensive. The motor will cost around $250. Let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Based on the limited details the motor is either humming instead of starting and running or the motor is running but the drum is not turning.
