Money-Saving Tip for Replacing a Motor in a GE Dryer

Some models of GE dryers are actually made my Frigidaire... or they at least use Frigidaire parts. One example is the GE DSXH43EA3WW dryer. If you have one of these with a bad motor, here's a tip that could save you a couple of of Benjamins: use the Frigidaire part number instead of the GE part. Grand Master Reginald explains:

...The new G.E. motor is only 376.85 clams. :woot: ............ ...Or, If yer crafty, only 115 clams :tongue: for a Frigidaire motor...

GE DSXH43EA3WW built by Frigidaire

GE Motor $ 377

Remove the Belt and try turning the Motor Shaft by hand.

Does it turn easily, smoothly ?

Give the Motor Shaft a twirl by hand.

Does it continue to spin at all ?
