When any motor starts, it first needs to overcome the initeria of the gears and turning parts. This usually requires a lubricant to make everything turn with as little friction as possible. From the description you gave. I would suspect that the grease in the motor bearings may be old or dry. And that some crud have have gotten into the rotating parts.

Without taking the mixer apart and cleaning the mechanism, I would suggest first starting the mixer and let it run for awhile. It's possible the crud will soften and not hold the parts so tightly. (In the end however, it may just need to be taken apart and cleaned.)

It’s most likely caused by your Cycling Thermostat AP6007567. When this thermostat opens due to heat in the blower housing, the timer starts running. I believe this thermostat is bypassed in the Timed Dry mode. The thermostat is on the blower housing so you would have take the front off the dryer to access it.
