The drum will not turn, I think the belt broke. How do I open it to find out.


Before you do anything please unplug. I'm not familiar with this model, but you have something else going on there. If the belt has broke or came off the drum would spin quite freely, no motor drag. Try lifting up the top. You may have to insert a puddy knife in the top front corners to release the clips. If not you should be able to remove the back panel. You have to find what is causing the drum obstruction. Goodluck Google burdfrenzy

Dryer drum turns for a second...stops and then motor hums?


I have a strong feeling the motor is seized or at least in the process of... I would recommend a new motor. If you are mechanically inclined, it's a very easy process. If you need help, I would be more than help to walk you through it.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II - Gas Dryer - Drum Won't Spin


If you are handy with tools, try to remove the back panel and feel the belt that should surround the drum. If access is that limited, try to turn the dryer on its side and you can get to the motor from the bottom. But like the guy said before, call a pro if you can't do any of this.
