THIS WAS TAKEN OFF BACK OF MACHINE.
Expert:  Daniel T. replied 3 months ago.

Thats fine.

If you start it going do you hear the motor running?

If you open the door and turn the drum by hand does it spin round very easy?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
the moters going but the drum does not move my hand.
Expert:  Daniel T. replied 3 months ago.

Ok what you need to do is remove the top panel of the dryer and from there you will see the drum. Have a look on there and see if you can see the belt around the drum. If so lift it up and see if its broken. But make sure you unplug the dryer first before removing the top panel.

If so then the belt will need to be replaced from there.

But if the drum isnt turning by hand then with the top off try and push it as hard as you can as with it not being used the drum could have siezed up so turning it can free it.

Then just replace the belt and see how it goes from there.

Let me know what you find.

ok will do what holds top panel on where are the screws?
Expert:  Daniel T. replied 3 months ago.

Just 2 screws at the back.

Remove then and then slide the top panel backwards and it will come off.

have got another belt from whirlpool but do i take front off to get belt on?
Expert:  Daniel T. replied 3 months ago.
Sorry for the delay. I work out on the road during day so dont always have time to reply.Anyway as to fitting the belt it's all done from the back. Remove the back cover and then the heater chamber and you can fit the belt over the drum and onto the motor from there.
