Frigidaire Dryer no Operation

Model #AGQ7000ES1,icon Unit started once, but would only make a humming sound when the start button was pressed after that. The motor start winding had been damaged by the centrifugal switch, so now it needs a new motoricon. To verify it was the motor, simply have someone hold the door switch closed, press the start button and spin the dryer drum clockwise. If the motor takes off and runs, must be the start winding.
