Whirlpool Dryer Motor Problem

3 posts in this topic

I have a Whirlpool LEQ9858LWO cloths dryer. The motor is nearly siezed up and is very hard to turn even with wrenches on each end.

 

I have removed the motor and it is on my bench. I have blown and wiped it as clean as I can get it.

The part info on the motor itself is S58NXMZK-6925. Part number 8538262.

 

Can this motor possibly just need some lubrication and if so where to you lube and with what weight / type of oil or other lube product?

 

I'm really hoping to avoid the cost of having to buy a replacement, even used.

 

TIA for any thoughts and help.

I had kind of reached that conclusion after I looked more closely just a while ago. I didn't see any obvious places to add any kind of lube.

 

Looks like I will be searching for a replacement.  I know of a couple used parts places locally that I may have some luck.

 

Thanks for the assistance!
