Question about Whirlpool Dryers
This could be a lot of things but i always go with the odds. it sounds like the belt broke and the clunk was the belt tensioner letting go. depending on where the lint screen is, if it is on top, remove the lint screen and the two screws. grab and bring the top of the dryer forward and then up. a small screwdriver placed between the top of the dryer and the front of the dryer can expedite the process if the top does not pop up nicely because there are two spring metal clips near the corners of the dryer top. you should be able to see the belt. pull on it and it should be tight. if it is not, you need a new belt and further investigation to see what if anything caused the belt to break.
