Open the top lid and look for a broken belt.
If belt is good let us know.

I have not worked on one of these compact dryers for some time, but from what I recall and from looking at the parts diagram you will have to remove the top first.

Then the front of the dryer will have to be removed. The front of the dryer is held in place with a couple screws from the inside.

Don't forget to unplug it first. :)

 :-\ I know how to take the cover off. It's just I put the belt I guess around the tub and then on the motor and that other part that's there but it's still isn't making the tub go round.
