Dryer Repair / Re: Replacing the motor of an old dryer
« Last post by Bsfromage on Today at 10:58:23 AM »
There are instructions with the new motor, but the wiring instructions seem to be meant for an old kind of motor with a different switch. Mine looked the same, so I just reassembled the dryer in reverse order, as mentioned in step 8.

Hmmm, ok... the new motor doesn't have the same part number on it :( The website directed me to 279827, as a replacement for 3395652, and I purchased this one, but the part number written on it is W10448892. Still, it looks identical to the image on their website and is very similar to my old motor. So I'm left wondering if I received the right part or not? The switch is the same and the harness from the power cord fits in both. I don't know if the wires are in the same place on both motors, though.

I took the trust bearing out and it is not smooth st all, the transmission is not making any noise at all when twisting the shaft from below. I have removed the agitator and it looks good and when hand turning there is some resistance but not slipping.

Looks like you got the right model. Can you double check that model number.
Dryer Repair / Replacing the motor of an old dryer
« Last post by Bsfromage on Today at 09:39:59 AM »

My tumble dryer, an old Inglis model IA84702, started making a squealing noise. I checked videos online to diagnose the problem and ended up disassembling it. I found out that the motor bearings were making the noise, so I found a replacement motor online. The old one is a model: 3395652 motor, and the new one is a WP 279827 model.

The switch and pulley looked completely identical, and I just installed the new one in reverse order as it is written in the instructions. Unfortunately, the settings on the front panel don't work properly anymore. The timer stops the machine when it's on off, but the dryer starts automatically when it's on a time setting, not allowing me to press the start button. Then, the heat settings don't work either. On Low heat, the dryer makes a lot of heat, and smell hot. It worries me a lot. On High heat, it makes no heat at all. So I unplugged everything from the wall and I am waiting for some advice. The door stops the machine and turns on the light like its supposed to, and the drum rotates properly.

I am wondering if, although the harness switch looks the same, the wiring might be different and require modifications. I worked in an assembly job for a while, so I know how to strip and reconnect wires, following instructions, but I don't know how to read electrical diagrams.

Also, both motor switches looked the same (see attached picture), but the new one, 279827, has no colors on the wires. It's only copper wires. I don't know which wires does what on both motors.

I would like some hints, please. Can you tell me if I've got the proper parts and identify what the issue might be? I had to stop working on it for now, because I was too anxious. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

This website said that the manufacturer of the old motor replaced it with the part I bought:

I can learn to do everything with enough time. I learned how to disassemble the dryer myself, and change the motor on my own, so I trust that I can learn how to fix this too.

Thank you very much for your help.
Thank you AJ, I thought the warranty technician may know how to adjust the pressure switch. I myself have done adjustment before.This time the customer ruined it.So we will wait for the new one to come

This machine is built around a reversing motor. In the wash direction the transmission agitates and the pump is turning in the wrong direction to pump out. In the other direction the transmission is set up to spin and now the pump is going in the correct way to pump the water out.If the washer is agitating while water is being pumped out, you have a bad transmission.
