The centrifugal switch on the motor may be open if all these other parts check correctly.

Access the motor, remove the plug, set your meter to continuity, attach the leads to the terminals listed as M1 and M2...... ( the ones with the large red wires)................use your finger and actuate the centrifugal switch........Continuity?????................................ If a lot of lint and fuzz, you can use some compressed air and blow the lint/fuzz out of the contacts to see if any thing changes........................
