I just notice another issue, I just plug the cord to the 110v,  and the ignite element start to turn on, (lighter), this is not a normal action, also when I open the front door, if I activate manually the switch i can hear a click in the coils,  all this happen without push the start cycle,
any i idea what should i check ?

If the motor is bad, chances are the motor centrifugal switch is also affected, causing power to the burners while the motor is not running. This is what has failed on the motor, and you should stop using the dryer until the motor has been replaced.

Take a wire off the start switch and see if it still does it.

Hello
    Finally I got this dryer running ,first i suspect some thing abnormal, because when i plug it, the ignite start by itself,
so i disassemble it, it was very dirty, so i clean it, and remove the motor, there was lot of residues of cotton or some thing like that, so i clean it and check the sw that is attached to the shaft, I reassemble it, and now is running normally, i think this SW was stuck due to the dirty


thank you all
