On some of the older models, it is attached to the inside of the rear panel. The newer machines have them on the tub support near the motor. Test it by pulling the motor off the machine, but leave it connected to the wiring connector. Select "spin". The lid switch has to be closed. If the motor doesn't immediately start, give it a little assistance by turning the shaft (be very careful: You're really close to 120VAC. If the motor does start on its own, replace the capacitor. If you have to help it, replace them both.
