    Default Dryer Drum Dragging

    I have a kenmore 90 Series dryer, model # 66955691 and i thought it was the motor causing it to tripout when it goes to start. I will push the start button and the drum wont move then i will smell a hot smell. Then it trips off.
    If i open the door and hold the switch so it will run the drum wont turn but i can help it get started and then it will run fine. The drum itself turns pretty hard just by hand but when i had it apart all the rollers seemed to spin free and work fine.

    Any ideas?
