Reviews

Very helpful video on changing the motor
December 06, 2023

This was probably the main reason for the squeaky dryer, although I changed the rollers while I was in there. I changed the belt and idler pulley a week earlier, but they were not the problem. The Sears video on the motor changeout was very helpful.

Great replacement motor for my OEM 1991 Dryer motor.
September 15, 2023

Great replacement motor for my OEM 1991 Dryer motor. I had to cut off two of the original 1/4" terminal lugs and replace them with the two 1/8" lugs that were provided. I also had to cut a small notch into the original OEM Motor bracket so that the new motor mount would recess into the notch to prevent motor frame rotation.
