The dryer motor just humms, if I bypass the door switch, move the drum by hand, the motor then picks it up and continues to spin and operate
If the dryer motor is not turning with the drum empty then the motor would be bad. If there are clothes in it and it is not starting then you will want to make sure that the unit is not overloaded. If not then the motor would be the problem.
