Hi,
Dryers have a belt that turns the drum, I think dryer belt being broken or slipping badly, burn out motor, or worn support parts.
---Dryer have a belt that rotate the drum, If the belt worn out or broken, it can not move the drum then you just need to replace it. ---You can check motor by hearing buzzing sound, if the belt has the problem. If you do not hear any sound from the motor then you may have to replace it. ---Try to move drum manually (by hand), if it is hard to turn then problem with the idler pulley, glides, or drum rollers.
I hope this will solve you problem

Thanks..!!

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.

Turn on it only hums


most likely a bad motor or something stopping the motor like a missing sock or cloth jammed into blower area..open door and spin tub while holding in door switch. a second person may be needed to turn on dryer at panel. if tub starts while turning tub by hand. you'll need a new motor. if still does not start..check for obstruction..no obstruction, bad motor

The tub is supposed to be locked untill the brake is released. When the machine is in the wash mode the tub is locked or else the clothes would all get knotted up. When the motor reverses the brake is released and the tub can turn freely. Check the pump for bad bearing.
