Capacitors are generally located quite close to the motor, and are easily changed, once you have gained access to the inside of the machine, that i can not help you with, it does sound like a capacitor but it could have also damaged the motor by trying to run it repeatedly, stop trying to use the appliance and change the capacitor, change with one the right size only, work with safety remove plug when working on appliances, if i have helped rate me please

Dryer won't start


belts, as in 2?? you do have an old speed queen. did you make sure the blower is able to turn freely?
if so then you most likely have a bad winding in the motor. it is costly to replace and you should go out and get a new dryer. too much money to fix this old unit.
by the way the model number is under the front panel in the center, on a metal plate.
doesnt matter since you know its 25 years old and its time to update.
