What would cause my Whirlpool gas dryer drum to barely move and not start when I push start?

I have a Whirlpool gas dryer model LGR4634EQ0. I'm trouble shooting why the drum moves slow to a stop after I push the start button. It seems like the drum is stuck. When I push the start button, it goes, but only slowly for a few seconds until it stops, there's a burning smell, almost like it's trying so hard to turn the drum, but just can't because it's too hard, almost feels like there is a sock stuck causing the drum to turn a little, but then finally quits.

I have the back off and the top off, there is one belt, there doesn't seem to be anything blocking it. Any trouble shooting tips?
