Hi,
your links show a picture of the square motor like it's in my dryer.  Other places on the internet show a more hex looking motor(it's really 4 sides but not so squarish).

So some places show 2 different motor pictures for WE17X10010:
WE17M22 - square model, this is the one in my dryer.
WE17X22215 - not so square.

Will either one wire in the same way as the original?  Should the bearing diameter be the same?
I the reason I ask, I accidentally got something that looks like WE17X22215 without brackets, so I"m not sure if it will just plug right in.

thanks

Check the dimensions of the replacement in  all areas where it fits, the wiring hookup, the pulley size, and the blower wheel  and the rating. Also does it rotate the correct direction. If these all match it should work OK.
