Pretty easy repair of Whirlpool Dryer

The new motor installed very easily. The tricky part was getting the blower fan off the old motor. Found a video where someone used a set of channel locks and a pry bar to break the fan loose. Other than that it was very easy.

Easy to install

It Was easy to install but you do need to take the drum out so you can take off the blower fan from the back of the motor

Buy this OEM motor first!

I originally bought a replacement motor from Amazon. Part of my motivation to purchase the 3rd party motor was it shipped to me next day with prime and was $30 cheaper. We’ll after 3 weeks this Amazon motor died on me and I was down again.

I purchased this motor and swapped it out and immediately I noticed how much more quiet the OEM motor was compared to the 3rd party. My dryer is back and we are all happy not to shell out $800 for a new replacement dryer!

Great replacement for 695075 motor

Replaced 695075 motor on dryer. Video's on line helped, buy the fan as old one will likely break. Wiring diagram was easy to follow. Great product, Dryer runs great.
