I had the same issue with a Samsung DV209AEW/XAA. Rear Access: 1) On the back where the Vent comes out you have 4 total screws. 3 of them are on the outside edge and the fourth is more of a middle mount that holds the tube to this bracket. Remove all four screws now you can lift and lean this plate to remove it. 2) This will also free up the vent tube and it can be pulled and cleaned also if you desire. 3) With these items out of the way you can now access the pulley for the belt and other items.
What I found was the belt had come off and the spring on the drum belt pully had come off.
After I disassembled the whole top and front to figure out I could not access what I needed from there I discovered I needed to enter in from the vent is.
Anyway here is some info:
1) On the back where the Vent comes out you have 4 total screws. 3 of them are on the outside edge and the fourth is more of a middle mount that holds the tube to this bracket. Remove all four screws now you can lift and lean this plate to remove it.

3) With these items out of the way you can now access the pulley for the belt and other items.

SOURCE: I have a samsung dryer
This photo is from a Samsung DV409AEW, but I assume they are quite likely the same. I also turned the drum (clockwise, which is the wrong way) and the same thing happened. The thud in my case was the spring that holds the tension pulley arm in place falling to the bottom of the dryer. If your situation is the same, spinning the drum caused the belt to come off of the idler pulley and the tension spring fell off. It seems to happen frequently based on web searches.
Again, assuming the DV409Axx is the same, you can get at it from behind. There should be 3 screws (2 on the top and 1 on the bottom) of the plate that holds the vent pipe output assembly. That assembly can then be removed. There will be a vent pipe extension that comes out with the assembly.
Once inside, see if the spring is off, and if so re-attach it per the photo below. It is counter-intuitive that the spring pulls the arm down, rather than to the left. Hopefully this will be your issue.
Putting the pipe extension and outlet assembly back in can take a bit of fiddling... but if you lay on the floor, you can actually shine a flashlight in the crack to see what you're doing.
Hope this helps!

Check to make sure your child lock is off first. Hold the time and signal buttons simultaneously for three seconds. Unlikely, but do check. Some of these dryers have a safety switch that the idler pulley has to engage to allow the dryer to run. I tried to find a schematic for this model but could not get one to tell if you do have a safety switch. Look at the arm of the idler pulley and see if it is contacting the switch actuator correctly. When a belt breaks or pops off, sometimes the arm of the pulley will move to the other side of the switch actuator and will not allow the dryer to run once a belt is reistalled. I would also look to see if a wire was knocked off of the motor switch when your belt came off. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists
