Question about Kenmore 64882 Electric Dryer
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, some seals are furnished with the cement to glue it 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.
Note:The way the belt goes back on is, as the belt comes off the drum has to be doubled (pushed together to form a loop) and goes under the idler pulley then to the motor.
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 thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.

SOURCE: changing dryer belt
The drive belt goes around the drum near the rear. It does not use a special groove; it just runs on the surface of the drum. You will need to remove the drum to gain access to the broken belt, motor, and idler/tensioner pulley. It will make more sense when you remove the drum and view the motor pulley and belt tensioner. With a helper, install the new belt around the motor pulley and under the tensioner, then fit it around the drum little by little as you reinstall the drum. Make sure the drum is positioned properly on its rear support wheels, then manually support the front end and rotate the drum slowly by hand. It should rotate freely and the belt should start to track straight as it realigns itself on the drum. If it tracks well, reinstall the front panel, door, top, etc., and check operation.

Thank you for your post, Amanda II!
Based off the information you have provided you need assistance in taking off your belt on your Frigidaire dryer. I was unable to locate any instructions on how to remove the belt or replace it. This is not a simple DIY job. I would recommend having a professional technician come out and disassemble your dryer for proper installation of the belt. They will have the appropriate tools to taking apart your dryer. I hope this is helpful to some degree. -Matt
