Does whirlpool make any washers for Samsung now?
I know way back when some Samsung machines
were made by Maytag toward the end of Maytag
as it's own independent company brand, BW (before the
whirlpool buyout in 2006.)
Also a few months ago I replaced a drive motor in a 5 year
old Samsung dryer and the old motor had a whirpool part number
however the new replacement motor definitely had a Samsung part
number and looked slightly different from the original motor in the
dryer. However the new motor mounted exactly the same, and the
wire harness connected directly, with no modifications at all.
