If the heater and blower work then th eprblem is with the drum turning system
This includes the motor ( which we will presume works because the blower does),the belt (Item #25 in the Cylinder, heater and bulhead diagram) and a spring and idler pully (Items 20 and 21 in the Base, Motor, and blower diagram)
Most likely problem is the spring broke releasing tension that halds the belt to the motor pully and drum. Second most likely is the belt has stretched.
You need to open the unit to determine where the problem lies.
Here are diagrams and parts listing for that machine.
Good luck!

Neptune dryer has power but will not spin.I hear a faint click comming from the left side. model#MDE9700AYM


An electric Neptune clothes dryer, like most electric clothes dryers, has two circuit breakers: one for the drum and another for the heating element. Both breakers need to be in the "on" position for it to run properly. Go to your main circuit box. Reset both of the dryer's circuit breakers to the "on" position. If one of the breakers trips again, there's a problem with the dryer component that it operates. Contact a dryer repair technician to evaluate the machine's condition.
The lid switch is a small latch located on the interior of the door frame on your Neptune clothes dryer. It keeps the door securely shut when the dryer's on to prevent injury should you open the door and reach inside while it's turning. If the lid switch becomes damaged, the dryer won't turn on even though its lights might work. Run your finger over the lid switch and listen for a clicking sound. If you don't hear a sound when the latch is compressed, it's faulty and needs to be swapped out.

The thermal cut-off is a heat-sensitive safety feature on a Neptune clothes dryer that shuts off the heating element if the dryer overheats. After it activates, it can't be reset; you must replace it. Until it's replaced, your dryer might only partially function, so while its lights might turn on, the dryer might not spin or heat. Don't exchange an old thermal cut-off for a new one until you first determine what promoted it to trip, otherwise your dryer likely will overheat again.
