Question about Dryers
Without any other information to go on, I would just guess that the belt that connects the dryer drum to the motor has either broken or slipped off.
It could also be something as simple as the lint catcher is clogged and the dryer has overheated. Make sure the lint filter is clean and that the dryer duct is not clogged on the inside behind the dryer or on the outside at the vent. This can sometimes happen...you might have to remove the vent outside and dig inside with your hand or with some type of object to clear it out.
If it is the belt: This is something that can be repaired by a service technician (or by a homeowner if you are "handy"). If you are wanting to fix it yourself do the following: 1. See if you have the owners manual and if it has a parts list. 2. if you don't have it, try to find it online and print it out 3. DISCONNECT THE DRYER FROM THE POWER!!!!! And then disconnect the dryer vent hose/line 4. Pull it out from the wall and look at the back of it. There is probably a panel held on by some screws or bolts. 5. Remove the panel to get a look at the dryer motor and drum. 6. You should be able to see if the belt is broken or slipped off. 7. If it's slipped off you can try to put it back on. This may work only temporarily because it's already slipped once, it's probably worn out and will do it again. 8. You can use the parts list from the owner's manual to purchase a new belt and then install it yourself or have a trained technician do it for you.
