Question about Asko T721 Electric Dryer
When we had this problem the solution was to replace the motor, the electric coil in the motor had a flat spot which would not make contact and let the motor start. By moving the drum you are advancing the motor away from the flat spot. Hope this helps.

If 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.
