Worth the extra money for oem motor.

This is an oem replacement. While it’s more expensive than the cheaper motors, the from and rear bearings are covered so dirt and lint won’t ruin the bearing(s)/motor. Purchased a $90 replacement motor in December 2019 and the front bearing went bad at the beginning of March 2022. Original motor worked from 2006 till 2019 before the clutch spring wore through.

OEM LG Motor - The Real Deal

Genuine OEM LG Electronics DC motor to replace original that lost a spring and started humming and working intermittently. Don’t buy a aftermarket “MiC” spend the extra for the real deal. Easy to remove old and install new if watch online videos. Great price and received in 2 days from SPD.

Easy install

Should've forked over the extra $100 when my dryer broke the 1st time! I went cheap and bought a knockoff. It was LOUD and only lasted 9 months. I put this one in and the difference is night and day. It's quite and functions as intended

Corrected issue with dryer

Part fit fine getting to the point you could replace it took a little time. Would be helpful to have some documentation with part. How to disassemble to change out.

New motor fixed the start/stop

LG Dryer would stop and start during a cycle. With a little research determined the motor was going bad. This new motor fit perfectly and dryer runs great again.
