Great replacement item with minor caveats.
This was a replacement for a Kenmore series 90 dryer motor and it was 1/2 the cost of obtaining an OEM motor. It also arrived VERY fast, packed well, and performed perfectly with only two minor issues: 1) There are actually two Kenmore motors used that have slightly different shaft lengths (according to an appliance repairman friend). This motor had a longer shaft and the fan that mounts to the end struck the shroud cover making a racket. I solved the problem by gluing a small fireplace gasket ($2) into the groove on the cover, giving an additional 1/8" clearance and solving the problem. The other minor problem was that the original motor had terminals for the switch that stops the motor if the dryer drum belt breaks. The new motor has no provision for this, but the problem is easily solved by cutting the black main motor power lead and crimping new slide terminal ends on the wires, then sliding them onto the belt tensioner switch terminals (achieves the same results as the original wiring diagram shows). The dryer now works like new, the "fixes" took only $2-$3, a trip to Ace Hardware, and about 15 minutes to install them, so I am overall delighted with the purchase and would certainly recommend it. One added note: since I had not changed a dryer motor before, I watched a YouTube video on the process and saved myself a great deal of grief (like seeing how the motor fan is removed [reverse threaded, 1/2" ratchet fitting on front of fan]) Unless you have experience in the job, I STRONGLY recommend watching a video on the job.Read full review
