SOURCE: hot tub pump will not
This can be one of three issues.
1. Starting capacitor as you have suggested. You can take the capacitor to a motor shop and have it tested or test it yourself if you have a meter that will check capacitance. 2. Low/High voltage. If the voltage is not at the proper levels (10% up or down) then the unit may have a hard time starting. 3. Something might be binding up the impeller. Disconnect the power and carefully check to see if the shaft of the motor spins freely. 4. A short in the windings. If none of these seem to be the problem, then you will probably need to replace the motor.

make sure impeller is not jammed try using a pliers to turn shaft when pump is off if it turns turn on and see if it turns freely try a couple times

check to see that the flow switch is working properly, it may not have enough flow on low speed to allow the heater to turn on. Make sure your filter/s is/are clean. If you have a pressure switch instead of a flow switch, it may need to be adjusted or replaced.

Check for voltage at the pump, before assuming the relays are out... then check for voltage before and after the relay contacts

The impeller and/or motor shaft is stuck or seized. If accessible you can try rotating the motor shaft with a visegrip plier or similar tool to see if it will come lose. Otherwise you should consider having the pump taken out and overhauled. Often the shaft seal begins leaking and result in water damage to the motor bearings. Bearings can be replaced, but compare labor and parts for overhaul to simply replacing the whole pump.
