Sounds like you have a simple broken belt problem.  If you are sure the motor is working and the heating circuits are functioning, but the drum does not turn, the drum belt probably broke.  They are inexpensive to replace and are carried by almost any appliance repair store.

    Could you please post back with comments as to what you might have done to solve the problem yourself instead of just leaving a  negative rating with no comments.  You asked some very simple questions and I gave gave a simple response.  The only thing left that turns a dryer drum if the motor is working properly is the BELT.  It would be nice to know if you had any further questions like, "How do you take the dryer apart?", or, "Where is the belt located?", or, "How do you install a new belt?".

Kenmore 80 series dryer. was working fine, now

Hello. When ever a dryer will not turn the first thing to suspect is a broken dryer belt. lift the top on your machine and visually inspect the belt. If it is broken, it is easy to replace. Joe

Broken Kenmore dryer 80 series

Hi Dave. The problem is the drive belt. They aren't that difficult to replace and can be done with just a few tools. I'll need the exact model number off of the dryer to explain how to gain access to it, though. The number can be found behind the door on the cabinet (it'll start with 3 digits then a decimal point then more digits, like this; xxx.xxxxxxx)

The part number for the repair is 4392065. This is a complete maintenance kit for your dryer. I recommend it because since your belt wore out, there are other parts that should be taken care of at the same time. Here's a picture and a place to order if you can't find it locally.
