ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Sounds like your problem may be with the heating coil. Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape or with an ohm meter to test the thermostat/thermistor. (Should have/show continuity)
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor.
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST.
This could cause a FIRE, as you have removed the safety of overheat from the machine.

Belt le7680xsn2 whirlpool


Only thing that fixes itself after cooling is the main motor. Either motor is failing, or something is binding preventing tub from turning, or making tub hard to turn. Can have hair binding support rollers. Will need to turn tub by hand , counter clockwise to determine if it's hard to turn, if so remove tub and inspect rollers, if they don't turn freely replace rollers.

Dryer will not turn


There is a belt like a fan belt that goes around the outer tub and onto a pulley that turns the tub, it may have slipped off, you should be able to take the top off of the dryer to check it.

No heat


have you checked the heating elements? you say the tub turns, is there any air coming into the tub and if so is it cold? if it is then you may want to get the heating elements checked.

Dyrer heats but tub does not turn


If the dryer is heating ,then it is going to be one of 2 things
  1. Drive belt worn or broken.
  2. Motor not starting due to a number of reasons.
  3. You need to remove the top cover to check the belt
Hope this helps with your prob.
