SOURCE: dryer wont turn
Yes, it will save you alot of money and work just fine. You will have to shut off the dryer, turn off the gas and/or electric(disconnect it to be sure it is power free). Look at dryer carefully as you may be able to access the belt from the lower front. The belt is easily available at Sears Parts Stores. Do not use it until fixed as it might overheat!

Hi, It is most likely the belt. Here are the instructions for the most common dryer. If this doesn't match up to you style dryer, please let me know your model # and I can assist you.
UNPLUG the dryer. This model you need to remove the two screws under the lint screen. Now use a flat blade screw drive and insert it in the gap between the top and the front panel and pry the top up. Now locate and remove the screws on the inside of the front panel in upper corners. The front should lift off.
There should be instructions that came with the belt. I will try and explain how this goes on. The idler pulley fits in a slot right in front of the motor. Put the belt over the drum with ribs touching drum. Now, thread the belt through the idler pulley wheel and bracket and set the belt on the motor pulley. The ribs should rest in the grooves on the motor pulley. I am also sending you a picture of how the belt threads through the idler pulley.
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further, please let me know.
