Took apart dryer...drum out...and we still cannot spin drum by hand. Have
cleaned all lint from all dryer parts...cleanest dryer in town! Shouldn't
the drum turn by hand now?

Not very easily if you have it apart. The front of the cabinet
supports the drum and makes it easier to turn.
Could you turn it before you took it apart?
Take the belt of and see if the motor is seized. The motor should
spin very easily.

Possibly not with the belt installed. Take the belt off the motor and
try again - then check the "bogey" wheels if it still does not turn
freely. I've replaced a lot of "bogey" wheels on driers over the years
- usually because of a very irritating squeak or "grinding" noise.
If the bogeys are ok and it won't turn with the belt off the "spindle"
bearing is cooked, if it has one.
