14 hp. MTD Lawn Tractor Won't Start

My 14 hp. MTD riding lawn mower will only start with a charger attached at 75 amp jump start setting even with a new fully charged battery. How do I know if it is the solenoid or the starter? I do hear a single click noise each time I turn the key. The starter is warm after trying a few times which lends me to believe it is the starter. Thanks for any suggestions.

Thank you attosa. That is exactly how it is acting. I will test it to be sure but I think that is it.
