Starter motor problem

I recently broke down and had to call the AA to get me going and he said that i needed a new starter motor. I bought a new starter motor and tested it to make sure it worked. The motor worked and the solenoid worked. i fit it to the car and start the car, i can hear the motor spinning but the gear doesnt move along the shaft to start the fly wheel.

Any suggestions to what may be wrong? or what i can do to fix the problem?

Thanks for your time

On what car?

Can you hear the solenoid working now it's fitted to the car? Have you disturbed any wiring while fitting?
