SOURCE: Dryer drum wont turn
These units use two circuits to operate. It is entirely possible that the circuit breaker for one is open. The breakers are linked units...generally 30-40 amperes. Turn both off and then on.

A lot of these dryers have a long fiber belt that runs from a pulley on the motor thru a tension idler pulley and goes all around the drum. I suspect this belt is either broken or has come off the drive pulley on the motor. You can remove the back of the dryer easily with a 1/4 or 5/16 nut driver and immediately see if the drive belt is good. Any Maytag dealer will have a replacement part and it is easy to install
Hope this helps Good Luck Loringh PS Please leave a ranking if appropriate Thanks

That dryer is made by Speed Queen. A common failure part is the thermal overload, mounted on the heater box. Items 4 and 6 in the picture Iposted are possiblities.

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Sounds like your problem may be a broken belt, or the belt may have slipped off of the motor pulley, or idler arm pulley or a faulty motor.
If you have to check/replace/repair your drum motor,drum seals,belt,rollers, etc.
If replacing drum seals be sure to use a good grade of weather proof cement to hold the seal/s in place.
Note: This method works for most front loading machines.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch or other electrical connections.
Remove the lint filter and the screws that hold the filter housing.
Then remove the top of the dryer.
Note: Some of the tops tilt backwards and do not have to be removed completly.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
