I ordered a new outer drum for my washer. Since it does not have the heat shield, where do I mount the ground wire for the stator?
Answer Hello Jessica,
The ground wire was to ground the metal heat shield by the ground of the motor stator. Since the plate was being grounded and it is no longer present, this eyelet does not need to be connected to anything. I think there is a place you can connect it in the plastic but this would only be to hold the wire out of the way of moving parts.
2 of the magnets in the rotor assembly are broken, can you replace just the broken magnets? On this model it looks like the bearings are sealed so I need to replace the outer tub with the bearings, am I correct?
Answer Kelli, I've found model WM2277HW. The magnets are not available separate from the rotor part number 4413EA1002B. You can purchase the bearings separate from the tub assembly, part numbers 4280FR4048L and 4280FR4048E. If you would prefer to replace the tub assembly use part number AJQ35154201. Thanks!
