Question about Whirlpool Dryers
Yes you can supply power directly to the motor terminals to check if it
is good or not. Just make sure to isolate the motor completely from the
rest of the dryer. Connect a power cord to terminals 4 and 5 on the motor switch then plug it into a 120 VAC outlet. The motor is definitely bad if it doesn't run and need to be replaced. In the event that the blower wheel cannot be removed and the motor needs replacing, you have to cut the shaft using a reciprocating saw and replace both the motor and the blower wheel.
The motor wiring to the timer needs to be checked for continuity if the motor runs. The timer needs replacing if there are no issues with the motor wiring and the motor itself.
