I'm replacing the motor in a Whirlpool CG2951XSN3 coin op dryer built in 1992. I just paid $98 plus tax for this motor at a local appliance parts store. I see tonight online it's a very common motor, and supplystuf on eBay has it for $50.40 brand new, including shipping. Besides feeling ripped off, the one I bought did not include wiring instructions needed for pre-1996 washers.

In particular, my old dryer has a blue wire that attached to the old motor's overload protector. This terminal on the new motor is jumpered with a blue wire (visible in attached photo) to terminal 4 of the new motor...leaving no place for the old dryer's blue wire to connect. I could "guess" I can leave the old dryer's blue wire dangling...or "guess" I should disconnect the new motor's blue jumper from the new motor's overload protector, and connect the old dryer's blue wire to this newly freed up terminal... but obviously I'd rather have the instructions.

I found a link to a site that has the right idea but their instructions are vague and the old motor in the link doesn't look like mine:

http://www.applianceaid.com/279827motor.html

In case I can't get it from the store, does anyone have a scan of the instruction sheet, visible partially in the attached ebay photo? Or do I have to buy another motor just to get the sheet, as this one is "electrical not returnable" ??

The instructions on the link you found are corrsct...what are you having a problem with?

disconnect the blue jumper that runs from the overload to the motor switch

put the blue (4M) wire from your harness on the overload terminal that you just removed the jumper from

connect the red (1M) wire from your harness to the terminal marked 1 on the motor switch

connect the red (2M)  wire from your harness to the terminal marked 2 on the motor switch

if your harness has a black (6M) wire then you are going to have to cut the terminal off and crimp a 1/" terminal on the wire and put it on terminal 6 on the motor switch (if your harness does not have  a black wire then disreguard)

do the same with the white (5M) wire from your harness,,,cut, crimp 1/8" terminal and attach to terminal 5 on the motor switch.

When installing the motor in the bracket then motor switch  should be in about the 7 o'clock position..you should feel it fall into place as you rotate the motor.

Dont forget to hook up the ground wire and you are all set.

I'm having trouble with a Sears lady Kenmore dryer 110.78491110. I replaced the motor and followed all directions and put the two new clips on etc. Everything works now except the timer does not turn (or time). I think it was working befor. I even heard it when repairing/testing and the door was open (the timer noise going but the drum was not). Now I do not hear it and it does not move. Everything else works, ellements heat and go on and off, it I move the timer to off the buzzer sounds, the push to start works, the door off switch works. Iv'e done lots of continuity tests on the wires. Any suggestions.

I'm a fairly smart monkey and persistant.

Ernie

You need to post a new thread......verify that in the timed cycle while dryer running that you are getting the proper voltage to the timer motor. It will either be 120 opr 240 volts. It will be stamped into the motor. (the silver part in the center of the timer with 2 black wires). If you are then the timer is bad....post a new thread.
