I am fairly new in the repair business (only 1.5yrs on my own) compared to the tech's on this site but I now we would never stear you to a site that didn't have quality parts.  I have been working with APP's for a long time and have nothing but good thing's to say.  I install factory part's from them and offer a 1 year warranty with them.  If I order the wrong part and it's more expensive than I can keep in my inventory I send it back...no questions asked they refund my money.  I have an account with a local supplier and when I need to order I usually get 7-10 day's and can get them online most of the time the next day.  You are getting factory parts from both APP's and Repairclinic.  Sorry this turned into a parts debate...maybe a new topic should be started.

Agreed, let's stop debating the parts from APP. Since I did order from them and they have assured me they are OEM we will see what arrives and I will post my follow up then. It is because of the help and advice from the members here that I took the confidence in APP.

So just for grins and giggles I went and checked the shipping status...  ;D Are you kidding me;
2/18/2012 4:40:00 AM  On FedEx vehicle for delivery  WEST HENRIETTA, NY

I ordered these parts yesterday around 2PM EST and they're on the truck for delivery?

I am impressed so far to say the least!

OK here is my result; Parts ordered arrived in a crazy fast way via fedex ground less than 24 hours after placing the order online with APP. To APP I award a triple AAA+ for selling and delivery OEM parts.  ;D O0 The dryer motor is an FSP OEM part and it popped right in place with a however... :tickedoff:

To Whirlpool and or FSP I award a DDD- due to the following issue; Although the motor is an almost perfect match regarding electrical connections and function the length os the shaft on the squirrell cage (blower side) is aproximately 2 mm too long!!!! >:( The problem with a shaft being to long is ... any guess'?

Let me splain. Once mounted with blower wheel attached the exhaust vent assembly (you know the one with the lint filter in it) presses against the wheel impeding free rotation thereby creating friction which causes the motor to over work and also a lot of noise.  ::)

Any ideas / experience with this? I currently have super glued 6 1mm thick washers (2 each behind 3 screws) to the motor mount cage behind the blower wheel (vent channell). :2funny:

There are two different motors Whirlpool uses for the kemore dryers.....yours should be part number 279787.  Maybe they sent you a 279827 instead which is the motor used if the blower wheel is in the back of machine.

Have a parts book on my desk and the 279827 blower shaft is 1/8 inch longer than the 279787.  You need the 279787 which is the dryer with blower wheel in front of machine.
