The belt is stretched out of its original shape. You will need to replace the belt along with the idler pulley. Sears has these parts in a kit form with instructions. The rear section were the top attaches to has a screw with a hinged metal peice which needs to be removed from each side of the back. Tiilt the top towards the front and pry up on the two front corners to remove the top. Then the front panel is removed undoing the sheet metal screws. The drum slides out and now you can access the belt and idler pulley. That a picture of it before removing the pulley with the belt on for reference

You need to check all the pulley's to see if one is not turning freely. If one of the pulley's is locked up that will cause the dragging you mention. If they all spin by hand, they all should.

I was having the same issue with my 95 GMC. I replaced the battery and alternator. It would start fine at times, at other times it would be sluggish. I finally took the starter off and had it checked. Turns out the starter was bad. When it would get hot, it would act as though the battery was dead. Replaced the starter and it has not acted up again. Have the starter checked. Replace if bad.

Hello Mwagner, sounds like the Idler bearing pulley assembly has come loose from the belt. It's job is to keep tension on the belt so the motor is able to turn the dryer drum. By watching some videos online it seems that alot of teardown is required to get to the part you need to inspect and or replace. Here is a link for you to look at that might help you.

Fisher and paykel clothes dryer wont turn with clothes in it.


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,
