My Samsung Dryer is about 5 years old, and the other day the dryer drum suddenly stopped and is completely froze up, and of course the extended warranty is long gone. The drum is completly froze and cannot be turned no matter what.  What could possibley be the problem and what should I expect when a repair person comes out?  Is this usually and expensive fix? Can it be fixed? or is it best just to get a new unit?

It is disappointing as i usually dry 3 loads a week if that much. the heaviest clothes is an occasional comforter or a couple pair of jeans. 

My mothers Maytag dryer was bought about a year before I was born and still going, ( I am 60 ) , after raising a family on a farm,  the only thing wrong with it is the door latch is touchy so you have to make sure it is closed good.  They sure don't make them like that anymore.

Look inside and see if the drum has a crack near the front or rear edge. If so, it snags the drum roller and stops dead. In this case, you would need at least a new drum, roller, and belt.

remove the lint filter and get a flash lite and see if you can see the sock jamming your blower wheel...
