Hotpoint CTD00 dryer, drum not turning

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.

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.

Replaced all parts for dryer because of no heat dryer runs drum turns had breaker and wiring going into dryer everything ok still no heat could wires be backwards going to replacement parts?

Electric dryers have as many as three thermal fuses. See if you might have missed one. One next to coils, one next to drum and one near the lint trap at air outlet. All three have different trip settings.

I have a Whirlpool Cabrio model #WED6200SW1. The control panel turns on and when I hit start the heating element heats but it will not start. There is a slight humming noise but I can't tell if it's...

The humming noise indicates the motor is either trying to run, but not doing so because of a bad motor or capacitor, or the motor IS running but cannot spin the drum because the drive belt is off/broken. If you can spin the drum easily by hand, the belt is probably the problem.

Dryer heats but doesn't completely dry clothes.

See if you could turn the machine and remove the vent hose on the back.
Then, after you are sure it is clear, try a load of clothes with the vent hose blowing out into the air, not hooked to a vent hose pipe through the wall.
Very often, a plugged pipe will cause this behaviour. The pipe could be plugged in the wall or somewhere else.
Be blessed.

Recently moved to new house. Dryer was working before, now it runs, drum turns but doesn't heat. Have tried adjusting fabric setting. Outside vent is clear and blows while running.

more than likely the heating element is not working. if there's no heat at all, this is probably the culprit. you have to gain access to the heating element to test it for continuity. no continuity=bad element=needs to be replaced. if you can get this far, then it's easy to change it out.

We have a Fridgidaire Affinity front load dryer. It was bought used in good condition. It has been working fine for a week but today it only dried a load half way and then when I tried to start the drying...

There is little to go wrong in these - and it's the electronics that confuses thngs.

Check the drum is free to turn, and that it drives the motor. Turn off - unplug, wait, then plug back in and try again.

If it's a no-go, you have to unplug and check inside - use a meter on the motor to check it's ok, and check heating elements.

Check door catch is working.

Check thermoststs work.

If all these parts are ok - you need a new control board - it's the only thing left.

Ok got a GE DVL223EB1WW Insufficent Heat

Yes think so , what should happen is element heats up controlled by fan blowing cold air across it this then heats to whatever thermostat is set to switch at, which in turn controls heat level..Air is then exausted via hose to waste unless its a condenser drier which then turns the steam back to water / which is collected in a waste condesate drum..hope this is helpful...

Motor does not start

Does the motor make a 'hum' sound wen you press start?
If so then it may need a new capacitor.
A capacitor is what starts an electric motor.
Usually the capacitor is a cylindrical shape and white in colour, but colour can vary from white, black or silver.
