You have a "Dead Spot" in your Motor...When you rotate the drum you move it from the dead spot and it continues to run as normal.
If you want to solve that problem then you will need to replace the motor...otherwise just live with it.

Dryer's drum won't rotate, but heat & timer works.

Hello there:
This is normally caused by a belt that has either broke or the motor for the belt has failed and locked up
S o what i would do is to first see if you can manually turn the drum by hand and if so than if you turn on the dryer and hear the motor that turns the drum running or humming you can assume that the motor is ok and that he belt has failed in this case get a new belt and the appliance parts store should be able to give you the proper diagram on how the belt needs to back on but if not let me know and i will be able to get it for you ok? now if you do not hear the motor hum than try to unplug the machine and leave sit for 30 min and than plug it back in and than see if it now tries to run but if no motor sound than youwill know that the motor has either failed and needs to be replaced or that there is a problem with the thermal fuse that is on the controle panel behind the start button ok
i can help if there is any more issues that you need help with.
Hope this is very helpful for you.
Best regards michael
