Mary Marlowe Leverette, About.com Laundry & Laundry Rooms, says:

It sounds as if your dryer drum belt has broken or slipped off. It will need to be replaced. You need to know the make and model of your dryer to purchase the belt. If you need an owner's manual or repair manual, you can find them here.

Good luck!
