Do you know how to check the belt?
Let me get that info for you.
Grab the back of the control panel right where it is mounted to the top and pull forward on the top while holding the front of the dryer with your knee. Use your other hand to lift the top on the side you are pulling. Do the same to the other side.
Don't touch anything inside so you don't get shocked.
Locate the belt and see if it is tight.
Also, does the drum turn freely.
