Kitchen Aid Quiet Care dryer. At least 9 years old. Drum no

This answer was rated:

Kitchen Aid Quiet Care dryer. At least 9 years old. Drum no longer spins. Have been hearing a whining sound (belt stretched?) for months at start up. I guess it finally broke? Heat still works.
Is this an easy belt to change? What belt is needed?
Thank you.

Hi Bryan,
Thanks for the quick response.
Yes, the motor is spinning but not the tub.
Unfortunately, I will not be near the dryer until after 5p eastern.
I guess I should have done this from home??

Kitchen Aid - Quiet Care - Heavy Duty - Super Capacity - 7 Cycle, 4 temp.
Anything else I can tell you at this point?

That's fine you can get back to me later, I don't stay on every minute of the day but I do check my questions periodically into the night, just respond when you got the model number and it will be sent directly to me, thanks and talk later, Bryan
