Hi Most dryers work with a belt around the drum. Either the belt is stretched and needs replacement or there may be a belt tensioner which needs adjustment to tighten the belt. What is happening in your case is that the belt is slipping on the drum as it is too loose. Best wishes, Graemevm
This could be the front drum support wheels. They are made of rubber and I just replace one that had broken up, causing the machine not to spin at all. (I replaced both while I had the machine apart as I'm sure the other one is at the end of its life too).
To get at it, I had to take the top and the back off of the machine (removing all screws) and then unhook the belt so I could pull the drum out enough to see the wheels. The wheels are bolted to the front plastic with a nut situated inside of it, so you will have to loosen that to hold the nut in place.
You'll need some torx bits of various sizes to do this job and reassembly takes some jiggling to line everything up. Took me about 2 hours all together.
BTW - if it is the belt , it is virtually the same procedure, but if your drum is rotating at all, I doubt it is the belt.
You have to pull the back off the dryer.Then you,ll be able to see how it comes off.Ussally its on two pulleys similar to a car.There may be a tensioner on it to to keep it from slipping.If there is one you,ll have to losen it to remove the belt & replace it,then tighten the tensioner back up.Ussally you keep about a 1/4" to 1/2" free play on the belt.You use a sraight edge on the two pulleys to measure it with the belt on,tighten belt tensioner till you have the recommended tighteness.
