You probably need someone to help you with this simple test. Open the door. Push and hold the door switch. Push the start button and manually turn the drum. If it would start then the motor is the culprit.

- The motor Part number: AP3094245

Part number: AP3094245



You decision to fix it or not should be based on the dryer condition.

Here are the breakdown diagrams and Replacement parts for WHIRLPOOL LGR5644AW1 | AppliancePartsPros.com
