When you hold the start button the start winding of the motor gets energized and as soon as the motor starts running the motor has a part that pushes a switch to de-energize the start winding and energize the run winding and this is not happening on yours. The motor is open ( you can see the windings). Try blowing and vacuuming out the motor of all lint. And see if you can physically move the part that should move. It is at the end plate , inside the motor next to where the wire connections are.
