I have a new W10810999 Motor and drive unit and I can not figure out the wiring set up from the old motor to the new motor W10810999.
Connect blue wire to terminal 1, black wire to terminal 2, red wire to terminal 5 and two yellow wires that are connected together to terminal 6, remove blue jumper wire and connecting white wire to 1/4" protector tab.
Have replaced Idler pulley, 2 tub rollers , and tub belt still sounds like bearing in motor I think I need replace motor but not sure don't know what else could be?
With all that has been replaced, the motor would most likely be the cause of the noise. Double check the blower wheel to make sure that the wheel is not damaged.
