Custom brushless motor doesn't turn and just makes a high-pitched noise


Hello! First post in the forum!
Anyway, so I just assembled this brushless motor. I hooked it up to an ESC (WP-SC8) and it just makes a high-pitched sound without spinning at all. The transmitter I am using is the Flysky GT3C. The receiver I am using is the one that came with the transmitter. Any help? My project is kind of due tomorrow,
Thanks!

What winding scheme? How many stator arms? How many magnets? Are some or all of the windings getting warm?

Enter your slots, magnets, and termination here and see if your scheme is valid:
