Need help with Whirlpool Dryer

7 posts in this topic

Hi.  I've been browsing a bit, and figured out I need a new motor.  So, how, in your great wisdom, do I change the motor out?  It's a Whirlpool.  The numbers I got from it are:  JLDE8400N1, and FK 14780.

Thanks.

Hmm...can you recheck that model number? Should be on a sticker next to the hole that the laundry goes in.

Yep, the numbers I gave are correct.  One's the model number, the other's the serial number.

Hummmm, looks really odd, that  " J  "  does not look to be long there and with or without it does not come up.   the LDE is correct for W/P, = Laundry, Dryer, Electric.  Is this a USA dryer or is this in another country??  Is your lint filter on the top or down in the door area? Is this a free-standing dryer or a stack unit???  We just do not recognize that sequesnce of letters and numbers but the format is correct.  And the serial number does not seem to have enough numbers.  Sorry, is just a puzzle, see if you can help us out with some of this additional infomation to the above questions, please.  Pegi

The tag says "Made in Canada" on it.  If that helps.  And the lint trap is on the top, right rear.

Thanks for the "Made in Canada" information.  I suspected this was the problem.  We do not have access to the model numbers for these products here in the USA.  :)  Pegi
