Have you looked for a belt on the drum of the dryer? Mine has a motor but it is attached to a wheel that turns large belt that extends around the drum.

Reach in and turn the drum by hand if you can do so with very little resistance then the belt may be broken or off the motor.

Maytag Performa PYE G2200 gas dryer, the dryer seems to turn on but the drum will not turn.


Based on the information provided, it sounds like a broken drum belt is at fault. Below is an illustration of the drum belt.

Here is a belt installation diagram:
Dryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time.
