I have a two speed washer, bad motor origional part no. of motor was3349644. This motor had a capicator screwed to the motor itself. The wiring harness plugs into the side of the motor and two additional wires go to the capicator. I ordered on ebay a used motor they sent me a 8528158. No mounting for the capicator and the rpm on the motor shows 1725 rpm. The rpm on the origional motor shows rpm 1725/1125 now there seems to be a mistake somewhere. Is the 8528158 a two speed motor or not.
ANSWER Hello Larry,
The correct part for your unit is 661600. If the motor that you received is only 1725 RPM then it is a single speed motor if it has just 1 speed reading on it. The 661600 is showing as a replacement for the motor 8528158.
