no problem with motor or control board. fault is with the motor capacitor only. this is often attached to the motor or near it. the value of the capacitor will be printed on it (usually about 8uf) and you should be able to source from an electrical spares shop

SOURCE: Will not turn on
the most common fault is a faulty thermal fuse heresd the part number for the replacement LA-1053 you can release the top assy by popping 2 clipps approx 6in. in from each side unde the front of the main top assy. the thermal fuse is located within the heater assy box direct;ly in the rear just under the main top. the kit includes a few tehremos and instructions depending on you rmodel

f you hear the motor humming and not starting at all it most likely has a severe friction problem with the drum or motor. It could possibly have some type of garment jamming the blower wheel preventing the motor from starting too.
Open the dryer door and manually rotate the dryer drum counter clockwise (CCW). It should take very little effort to rotate the drum. If it's hard to rotate that could explain why the motor hums instead of starting up. If it turns freely, shut the door and see if will start. If it still hums and not start it may have bad motor or a low voltage supply to the motor.
