There should be what is called a "start" capacitor on the motor. You may need to remove the back cover from the motor to get to it or it may be mounted externally. I would replace it.

2005 jaguar VDP 4.0L. Very hard start. Have replaced map and crank sensor, egr valve and intake.

in what way is it hard to start does the engine turn over fast or slow, fast is low compression in the piston chambers slow can be the battery or the starter motor wearing out. ( starter motor has bushes to turn the motor these wear out and cannot turn the engine over fast enough to start.

My mom's old singer will start sewing then slows down to a stop.

It may need a REALLY thorough cleaning & oiling, Cindy, including the motor bearings. The motor's windings may be getting weak, too, or the new belt may be slipping.

Reset pcb bosch classixx 1200 express

There is no reset as such, if the motor shorted when the motor brushes went there is a good chance that it blew the motor tracking or relay on the board. Sometime this is indicated by F20 or F21. Unfortunately this will be a new board. You could try to run a motor test as follows:
Hold in the start button while turning the dial one click to the left (30 easycare) wait until the display shows 888 or two indicators light up next to dial.
Release start and turn dial to 60 cotton (WITHOUT GOING THRO THE OFF).
Press start
This should start a motor test
slow turn one way, slow turn the other, pump on then up to full spin.
(some machines will show the rpm on the display).
If this does not work, you probably need to change the module aswell.
Best of luck

How do you know if the motor is going bad? Sometimes when I start it the motor will hum for a few seconds and them will start real slow. other times it wont start at all. can I isolate the motor to see if...

Three possibilities: the drum bearings may be worn causing hard turning, the motor bearings may be about worn out allowing the rotor to contact the stator inside the motor, and last, but maybe the most likely, the start capacitor, which is mounted near the motor, may be going bad causing weak starts at first, then no-start/loud humming finally. Take the belt off of the motor pulley and start the dryer--the motor should almost instantly be running full speed. You can test the motor bearings (when motor is OFF) by trying to push/pull the shaft in various directions sideways. Any obvious slop is a sign of worn bearings. Try turning the drum by hand to see if it turns fairly freely. Hope this helps!

Replaced a blown engine with a used one engine will not start turns slow gets sprk ,replaced coil pak and starter,also sparkplugs and wirers still will not start ,ckecked all wire plugins did not see...

you said the motor turns over real slow have you checked the battery charge, if so did the motor turn freely before you installed it. it could have seized up if it sat a while before you installed it try spraying some starting fluid in the throttle body and starting it

Is this a top loader? Im guessing it is. Try to turn the basket by hand. Is it hard to turn. Sometimes a piece of clothing will get stuck between the inner and outer tub causing resistance. Do you have a model #? thanks dave,
