no problem with motor or control board. fault is with the motor capacitor only. this is often attached to the motor or near it. the value of the capacitor will be printed on it (usually about 8uf) and you should be able to source from an electrical spares shop

SOURCE: Drum not rotating
If you clean your lint filter after each load faithfully, try removing the dryer vent hose that goes to the outside and inspect it for lint accumulation, water build up, or some other foreign material, as this will restrict air flow and cause your described symptoms. If your are unable to inspect your vent, disconnect it from the back of the dryer and start your dryer to see if it works that way.

SOURCE: dryer heats up but won't turn
Depending on the make of dryer,there are several possibile reasons for this.
First and foremost, could be a faulty motor- faulty start capacitor, Faulty start relay.
Without more information I cannot be more specific.
Hope this helps.
Please leave feedback.

Yes, there is a "startup" switch. It's the button you push on the panel (but I'm sure you know about that).
This switch energizes the start winding in the motor -- when the motor gets up to speed, a centrifugal switch in the motor disconnects the power from the start winding and switches to the run winding.
Either the start winding is not getting power or the winding is bad. If "no power" is the problem, it could be the button on the panel or a loose/dirty connection between there and the start winding. Lot of possibilities which need to be explored.
But if you know about pushing the safety switch on the door and spinning the drum by hand to get the motor started, you can probably fix this.
