    Default dryer motor numbers

    How to tell if you have a dryer motor that a parts site lists as WEM^^^^ when the dryer motors do not have this number on them? Instead they have a very long and different part/model number?

    *Most* numbers on the motor are not a part #...there are the odd exceptions.
    Best bet is to use the model # to look up the current motor part #.

    Actually that is what I did I think. I looked a number up on one site and it gave we14.... I then looked on another site for that number and saw a motor that when enlarged showed the longer number and not the shorter one. I was needing a GE dryer motor at the time. I think I had one that would have worked but it did not have that short GE number.
    I have substituted washer motors with different numbers when the control panels had the same functions and same connections on the motor switches.
