Question about LG DLE2514 Electric Dryer
Welcome to FixYa.
Based on what you`re describing it sounds like a faulty motor for sure.
If the motor cannot turn the drum under it`s own, it may simply have "gunked" or dirty bearings which can impede the motor from starting.
If you are capable of taking the unit apart ( done from the front...not back ) you may be able to clean it out and oil the bearings as a "fix", but eventually the motor will need to be replaced.
You`ll also want to try and run the motor without the belt/drum attached to see if it will indeed start that way and make sure the belt isn`t "slipping".
**unplug the unit before servicing...safety first**
Motor part # 4681EL1008A
It should be available at most local brick & mortar appliance part locations or online vendors like "searspartdirect.com" "repairclinic.com" to name a couple.
Let me know how you make out or if you require further assistance.
