Major Appliances/Dryer start button late catching


My Whirlpool LHE 5800 wi just had a new motor put in, but now I notice when I press the start button there seems to be a delay until it kicks in to start. Could that be a wire connection that is not on properly?
Thank you for your help!

I don't fully understand....On a new motor or a older motor, as soon as you press start, the motor should come on.  I can't imagine wiring being wrong if the motor does come on.  How many seconds between pressing start and the motor actually running....
