How can i test my dryer to find out if the motor is bad

If the drum goes around, your motor is working.
If the drum doesn't go around, the belt could be off or broken, or the motor could be bad.
Try to listen for the motor starting up as you turn the dryer on. If it sounds like it is running (an initial 'bump' followed by a quiet hum), chances are it is a belt problem.
If you can't hear the motor running, or it is a loud buzz, or there is the smell of burning insulation or smoke, chances are your motor is bad.
It is also possible that the selector switch that controls everything is not turning the motor on (bad selector) or the overheat safety switch is malfunctioning, but these need to be tested by taking the dryer apart.

Dryer hummes when you turn it on but does not rotate

This don't sound good most likely the motor is bad . OK first unplug the dryer take the belt off the motor now plug the dryer back in hit the start switch does the motor turn NOW??? If not its the motor. IF the motor does turn??? could be a weak motor OR Bad bearing in the Back of the tub.
Rotate the TUB by Hand UNPLUG THE DRYER FIRST. IF the tub Rotate freely I would say you
Have a bad Motor But if the tub is very hard to turn now your looking at a bad Bearing

Dryer cuts out

Either a bad motor or power problem . If dryer has been there for a while and worked fine , then motor is bad . If dryer has recently gotten there , check the cord to make sure it's connected properly , and the wall receptical has 240 volts where it should be ( both 1/2 " straight terminals ) The " L " is ground .

Dryer On Switch

If you're really lucky it may be a broken or burnt off wire at the motor, but more likely you have a bad motor. When you push the start button you are energizing the start winding on the motor, but if there is no circuit through the run winding the motor will not continue to run when you release the button. Could be a bad run winding or the centrifugal switch is not resetting when the motor stops. Either way you are most likely looking at a new motor (expensive and usually a pain to install) or replacing the dryer. Sorry for the bad news. (remember good advice = fixya rating)

Dryer runs only when "Start" button is being pushed

--Bad motor run windings
--bad motor switch
These are two possibilities.How old is the dryer. may not be worth it. get the model# from the dryer & price a motor. (new motor cures both of these possibilities)
