KJM, You may want to remove the drive belt off the pulley, and see if the motor will run, You may have a "locked up" gearcase, or idler pulley. Otherwise the next thing to check would be the wiring between the timer and the motor for loose, frayed connections, pinches, twists etc.

Thanks and Good Luck,

Just FYI... Had the same problem. My problem turned out to be the capacitor for the motor. A $14.00 fix. The capacitor gives the motor an extra surge of power at the start to get it turning. Without it the motor will just hum. Hope this helps.
