Whirlpool electric dryer model LE8860XW00
« on: October 09, 2018, 06:20:21 AM »

I have the above model dryer with s/n MB4640821 that has a motor that is starting to go  bad due to bearing deterioration. It will not start easy and if it has a load of heavy wet clothes it will not start. I have an alternate motor I would like to use but the wiring at the connector plug is different. I refer to this as a modular versus non modular type plug.  I think I have seen info on this site about how to connect the wiring but cant find the info. The alternate motor I want to use is marked as follows: S58NXMZK-6925. Can anyone steer me in the right direction ?

This dryer  has been sold but I have another one with almost the same problem and the same kind of motor connector situation so if anyone can provide that kind of hookup info it would be appreciated.
