I've got a Kenmore 80 Series electric clothes dryer, whose drum stopped
turning last night. The heat comes on, and it sounds like the motor is
running, but there's no tumbling. I could probably switch out a simple
part or two, if that's what wrong, but I don't know what to look for
once I get the back off. Any direction would be most appreciated.
The dignified don't even enter in the game.

probably a broken belt, most likely you will need to remove drum, but
its no biggie.
the belt circles the drum.
on all the newer dryers you will need to remove the front, since the
back supports the drum its not removable.
There's a kit you can buy that includes a belt, wheels that support the
rear of the drum and a tensioner belt pully for about 35.00.
While you're at it you might want to take off the rear panel and then
the cover to access the blower fan and make sure the fan is clear of
debris. Mine jammed up and I thought it was the motor gone bad.
