I bought this motor for my Kenmore Direct-drive washer, and wanted to make sure I installed it correctly.
Originally there was a 'cardboard' looking shield somewhere between the motor and the mounting plate attached to the transmission case, in the area of the coupler. (It has an electrical warning on it as it extends out behind the start capacitor on the side of the motor).
This is a different shield than the cardboard-like one under the motor.
There are four rubber grommets between the motor and the transmission mount plate.
I just can't remember what side of the four rubber grommets this shield is supposed to be on. Is it supposed to be on the side of the grommets closer to the motor, or the side of the grommets closer to the transmission?
I installed it with the shield between the motor and the grommets.
My concern now is that if I did this wrong, it might be blocking air-flow that (maybe) is supposed to flowing out of the end of the motor.
Can you tell me which side of the grommets (motor or transmission plate) this shield is supposed to be mounted? Does it matter? Is it even needed in this case?
ANSWER Hello Greg. Yes, the grommets should face the motor 3352287 and not the transmission. It sounds like you have it installed correctly. Hope this helps.
