I have the above model dryer and the drum no longer tumbles. I have checked the belt and it is tight and the dryer spins when you rotate it. The motor gets the correct voltage, the heating element comes on like it should, though it stays on when the door is open. other than that the door switch functions. There's no continuity between motor terminals. Timer works correctly.

I'm not sure what I'm missing here. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

The motor gets the correct voltage,
If the motor gets 120 VAC and it's not working, replace the motor:
