Whirlpool Dryer Drum is NOT Turning

I am attempting to repair a Whirlpool Dryer, Model No.: LER4634EQ2, Type No.: 122-00. The drum does not turn, although heat is present. I have popped the top, and the belt appears to be in place and rotates when the drum is manually turned (no slippage). I would appreciate any thoughts as to what may be causing the problem.
Thank you.

Take out lint screen and remove 2 screws there. Take a stiff putty knife and slide it between the top and front panel near the side and pry up on each side. Top will pop off clips holding down.(may have to use a little force) lift top up and lean back. look inside at front panel and find 2 screws holding on (near top on sides) pull up on front panel and will come off. Careful of wires to door unplug wires or just put it to the side. Hope this helps,
Dryer drum was turned wrong way and belt came off the idler pulley.
