The only things that would cause your issue would be a bad motor itself, or something is dragging the motor. Disconnect the belt from the motor and see if you have to still hold the start button for 5 seconds. If so, then return the motor and get a new one because it came faulty. Otherwise, if you don't need to hold the start button anymore, start checking the drum rollers and the tensioner pulley wheel and such because something is causing the drum to rotate slowly and adding too much friction.

Thank you for the quick response I will take the motor back and see if I can exchange it I know sometimes they don't want to do it on electrical
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 7 months ago

motor's shouldn't be a problem. It's typically switches and control boards you have problems with. But the manufacture warranty's the part for 30 days so they should definitely take it back without question if it came defective. Please remember to rate my service by selecting a star at the top or bottom of the screen before you leave today and if you need anything else just let me know.
