I recently replaced my frigidaire dryer motor. Now when i push. To start It makes a noise like it tries to start. But does not, almost like something is holding it back. Any ideas?

Gonna need more info than that to give any type of educated guess. You may have to retrace what you did to insure that you installed the motor correctly. Was it the correct motor for your model? If not sized properly the motor could be in the way of the movement of the drum. I'm sure you had to remove the drum to replace the motor. Is it balanced on the rollers correctly? Is it too tight with the front panel? Just loads (pun intended) of potential problems could be causing this and without pics of what you did or knowledge of the process you used, well, we're just taking shots in the dark.

does it have the quick disconnect if so it probably has a loose connection inside the connector, it happens. If its not the connector then you probably got a bad motor
