GE electric dryer GTPD180ED2WW will not start. Motor hums

GE electric dryer GTPD180ED2WW will not start. Motor hums (like start capacitor dead). Can be started by opening door, closing door switch, manually spin drum. Is there a start capacitor? Is there a centrifugal switch? Can either capacitor or centrifugal switch be replaced? Does whole motor unit (P511699355) have to be replaced?

Tyler, there was this Kenmore Electric Dryer I worked on

Tyler, there was this Kenmore Electric Dryer I worked on last week. I had already really cleaned it out. Thought it was fine. Customer said it was taking more than 70 minutes to dry cottons. I went back and found that the exhaust was about 20 degrees less than 140 degrees. I changed the cycling thermostat. It worked great, approaching 165 degrees at one point and then cycling back down. It consistently went above the 140 degrees. I dried a whole load and the housekeeper agreed it was working great. Customer called and said that it was back to its old drying time. Is there something I should know about what could have blown a new cycling thermostat, or was it possibly just a dud that worked for a short while? I didn't check to see if it was generic or original manufacturer's part. Seen something like this before?
