The drum does not turn, the heating element heats up ok. Tried turning by hand but still doesn't start. Bought a new capacitor but still no good.
New cap has 4 connectors old one just had 2, think I wired it ok though.

Re: Hotpoint CTD00 dryer, drum not turning
Provided you only have 2 wires to cap ,it does not matter which wire you put on terminals, as they are both common.
Assuming you got the right value cap, 8uf I think, and it still does not go, check for live and neutral to motor, if supply o/k then you probably have faulty motor.
If no power there check for bad or broken connection.

I would suggest that you check the heater and thermostats, these are located behind a removeable cover at the rear of the dryer.
You will need a meter to test them with, you are checking for continuity
To be certain whether it is the element or thermostats that are faulty,you really need a test meter to check them with, as it is not obvious if they are faulty or not, simply by looking at them
Hope this helps.

There is a thermal fuse at the back that you must check. The thermal fuse can be tested using a multimeter. If the fuse is ok, then check the heating element , the temp probe, wiring harness to heating element and temp sensor, and if there is nothing in there , then test control timer board.
