Unfortunately your motor is bad, which is most likely why the belt broke.
Try to turn the spindle on the motor by hand; It should turn freely. If it doesn't, it is frozen and needs replaced.
Replacing the motor is a bit involved, but since your in this deep....
You can order the replacement motor from or call 1800-252-1698.
I can help you more if you give me the make and complete model number. Heres info on how to find it:!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=+86673100&pathTaken=partSearch
But...generically you can:
1. I'd take the drum completely out to give you room. Remove all wires connected to the motor, noting were they go. Usually there is one wire harness and a ground to remove. That's about it. 2. You'll notice there is a metal clamp that is slotted on one end and is snapped on the metal tab on the brace under the motor. Best way to get off is with flat-head pliers (regular pliers will work). Grab the end of the metal brace perpendicularly and bend down, using leverage to pop the clamp off the tab. It should pop free, releasing the motor 3. The other end of the motor should insert into the fan blower assembly. You'll have to release it from the back. 4. Take the back panel off then remove all the screws from the fan blower assy. 5. Once inside you will see the fan. It will be attached one of two ways: A. With a odd looking metal clamp of sorts that hooks on the motor spindle on both sides of the fan. There is a release bolt to loosen up. DO NOT REMOVE THIS BOLT ALL THE WAY. It is difficult to put back on. Once clamp is removed, pull fan off. B. The fan screws off, most likely in a counter clockwise direction. Easiest way to get fan loosened, believe it or not, is with a tire tool. A big socket will work. Pliers are not recommend because the fan is plastic and will chew up or wear down easily and become impossible to get off. Ideally, have some one else use vise grips on the other end of the motor, the spindle. It's locked up, but it may still spin as you try to remove the fan. If it is just use, hook the vise grips on tight and lodge them against the bottom or the side so they won't let the motor turn as you turn the fan. Once loose, remove fan. 6. Once fan is removed, the motor should be free. Put new motor in place and simply reverse these directions. Ideally, you would want to test the motor before you put EVERYTHING back together. Once the motor is secure and wired up, put the front of unit loosely in place and connect the door switch. Carefully plug in, standing clear of wires and motor. Start dryer. If motor runs, but it all back together. If it doesn't, there may be an interlock switch associated with the tension lever. Have someone hold the tension belt down until the switch makes and turn on. If it's just you, use your foot to hold down tension lever. If drier works, put everything back together.
I think this should solve your problem, but if it doesn't work, I can troubleshoot further with the make and model number.
Good luck. Let me know. If this helps you, please leave a testimonial for me. Thanks! G

You'll have to trouble shoot it... the belt either jumped off the motor pully or it may have broke. Either way you'll have to disconnect it and inspect it. Remember to always unplug the unit when servicing it. If the belt broke it is not hard to replace. The drums are held by gravity on rollers. Simply lift enough to get new belt pass the roller. If there are upper rollers in the way... simply remove them. Don't remove lower rollers. Lift the drum enough to install the belt and replace the upper rollers, relocate the new belt and close it up. Done.

Element heats but dryer drum does not turn. It is a front loading Kenmore dryer. It seems the drum is off what ever it is that keeps it in place.

Your belt broke or just came off. The belt keeps it in line and turns the drum. If you're handy you can replace it yourself. make sure the thing is unplugged, it's 220 volts. take the back off. the belt goes around the whole drum and the motors pully. It takes some doing but it is doable. If it's broken, Order a new belt from the dealer and replace it. or if you're not so handy or just don't want to deal with it call a service man to replace it.

The belt broke drum won't turn

Hello Friend, Replacing a dryer belt is very simple. Just remove front of dryer cabinet. unplug wires from dryer door switch. Just slide a new belt over the drum with the belt grooves facing to the inside. Underneath drum you will see a tention wheel next to motor. Install belt around tention wheel and around motor shaft pully. Re-install front dryer cabinet. Make sure to plug in the wires to the door switch and make sure that the drum is re-inserted back over the felt glide on inner cabinet front. Happy to help, Tim.

I need to puy a new belt onto my creda dryer model number 37742

Remove the old belt making note of the pullys that it goes around. The belt should have a make and model number on it. You can order a replacement online or go to your local hardware or Sears store. After receiving the belt and are ready to install, note that one pully will have a bolt or screw that you can untighten so that the pully will move back and forth so the belt will fit on. Pull the pully tight against the new belt and tighten the bolt or screw. This should work.
