it isn't just "plug & play" ?
What's wrong with the original Motor ?

in Agitate and Spin ?
Try turning the Shaft on the "old ' Motor Shaft by hand.
Does it turn easily, smoothly ?
Isn't the "new" Motor "plug & play" ?

the "old" Motor and / or the "new" Motor ?
in Agitate and Spin ?

Try turning the Shaft on the "old ' Motor Shaft by hand.
Does it turn easily, smoothly ?

Isn't the "new" Motor "plug & play" ?
Does the "new" Motor work ?
OR the same as the "old" Motor ?

Your model number takes the motor P/N W10210608 with the timer P/N W10199989..............I checked model number ETW4400WQ'o' and it uses the same timer but with motor, P/N 8528158.............P/N 8528158 is still available but when sold out you will need to order P/N 661600...............So, using Plan 'B' you may be able to use a different motor all together..... P.S. Did you check your start cap????

The motor did not mount correctly or ????.........the wires should not be a problem, easy to move around..............The customer did not want to compete the repair????? Is she going to scrap the machine???? I would get the machine , install the motor , test it and sell it to recoup your lost wages............Wait till she gets a Whirlpool labeled Samsung :yucky:
