I just purchased the motor for this washer. When I bolted up the motor, I noticed there is not a hole to attach the ground wire.
What should I do?
I called to have the company replace the motor with another. On the motor, there is a little picture for the ground wire,just as on my old motor but, no hole.
What should I hook the ground to?
ANSWER Hello Barb. Look and see if the ground wire is already going to the ground at another location, completing the circuit. If so, you should be fine with the piggy tailed connector not hooked to the motor 131276200. If not, you will need to attach the wire to the frame of the unit. You can splice the wire and make it longer if needed to reach ground. The motor is already internaly grounded.
