If you have a bad thermostat, will the dryer motor still run, but drum will not spin just like my problem right now?
ANSWER Burt, Not really, The thermostats control the heat in the dryer drum. There is a heat sensitive thermal fuse in the motor circuit, but if it has failed (opens) the motor won't run, until it is replaced. It sounds more like you may have a broken drum belt 40111201 .
