Fits like a glove

Exact part for my kenmore 800 dryer. Easy to install, came 2 days early, easy plug and play. Saved me over $500 from buying a new dryer. Step by step replacement instruction available in youtube. I highly recomment buying from sears, they have a warranty and 365 days return policy in this one. The only extra i have to pay is the 6 pack of beer i bought after installing it. Only advice to diy'rs is get the model number of your unit..its easier to buy exact parts if you have the model number

Perfect fit

There is nothing like getting the original part to your equipment. Sears Parts provided the correct advice, sent the right part and clearly indicated the expected shipping time. All worked like clockwork, congrats for a job well done.

Fixing beats replacing

The old motor actually caught fire after 20 years of lint and age getting stuck in it. We really thought about just getting a new dryer, but the rest of our dryer still looked ok. I cleaned it heavily and ordered this motor and installed it. We now have a working dryer. This thing saved me $400 or more. Very glad I ordered it.

Arrived in 2 days

Dryer motor seized. Ordered new motor from Sears PartsDirect. Advertised it to arrive in 2 days, to our amazement it was on our front porch in 2 days. Saved ourselves a boatload of money by repairing our Kenmore 90 Series Dryer we have owned for 20 years. Works like new, clothes now dry on low setting in no time! 1 hour to disassemble the dryer and removed the old motor, $225.00 and motor arrived in 2 days, 30 minutes to install motor and re-assemble the entire dryer unit.

Very easy to install

Very easy to install, become familiar and take fotos before disassembly, it took about 1.5 hours from beginning to end.
