Reg & WJWebster thanks for your help.  I did see the disclamer about having voltmeter before register.   I must have missed it.  I just hope everyone has a voltmeter before asking a question or Repair-man will never get to answer any questions....

Rather than  take a shot at me, just follow the rules next time and you won't be disappointed. My track record speaks for itself.

What about the rollers, drumglide, and idler? Does the drum turn easily? Geez a new motor and she still boggs down? I could see the concern if we was talking 240 volt dryer. And messing with any kind of Shocktricity is tricky. I commend RM for his stance. Maybe they sent you a bad motor. After checking for motor bearing stiffness, I would BRIEFLY apply 120 volts to the motor on the blue and white wires using a suicide cord to see if them puppys run. But that in itself might be TMI to the layman.:D
