Question about Danby DCD5505W Electric Dryer
Yes, I can hear the motor running and everything. It just doesn't turn anymore. I have taken the top cover off to look inside but the drum takes up most of the space and therefore my viewing capacity is limited. I was wondering if I would have any luck taking off the back panel next and then maybe I can inspect the belt from that angle ? ( I am not mechanically inclined per se but I am willing to learn and try on my own because I am on a fixed income and so your help is a blessing to me and I thank you much ) I am glad I found this web-site.
Here are the Danbyinstructions:

On some dryers, actually the front comes off easier. Yes, you need a better view down there. Make sure the dryer is unplugged! Let me know what you find.
