Hi,

This dryer has a seized motor.

The parts distributor gave me a WE17X10010 as the replacement.

There is no wiring diagram that makes sense and even when I
put the two motors up against each other, they don't match up,
when comparing length of the shafts and mountings.

Anyone have experience with this particular motor??

It seems this motor is being recommended based on look up,
but it is the wrong motor.

Of course, it's GE.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Bruce in L.A.

There is one sheet of paper in the box.

It shows the terminals that the internal wires, Black, Blue and Orange
are connected to on the old motor and the terminals that they are connected
to on the new motor (which they were not connected as shown).

It does not show where the four wires coming to the motor are connected.

And you cannot connect them as they were on the old motor as some of the
needed terminals don't exist on the new motor.

The motor, physically, shaft to shaft (length) and mounting hubs do not match up.

I guess I need to call GE in the A.M. to research further.

Thanks,
Bruce

Well, I managed to get the motor to work, but it would not mount in the original
shroud that it pokes through to attach the blower wheel.

The mounts on both motors are not the same. The new motor has a shorter mount,
so I went to a friends used appliance store and got a new shroud with a wider bracket to hold the front mount of the motor.

Without that part, I could not have completed this job.

BTW, GE never responded to W.L. May as yet, and probably never will.

"G"arbage "E"xtrodinaire....Don't we just love 'em?

Thanks guys,
Bruce in L.A.
