Can someone please point me in the right direction to date WP made washer/dryer motors. I'm looking for a used motor for my WP dryer, as the bearings are starting to go. One that I'm looking at has a MFG Date of: 240AF (see image)

Looks like a good clean motor, I don't have my date code book here so I can't tell for sure when it was built, my guess is the 40th week of 2012.


This motor should have a drive pulley on it, while you can in theory use the pulley off your current motor they are often difficult to get off the old motor without destroying them, and if your current pulley is pot-metal do not try reusing it.

Yeah, I noticed the missing pulley. If they're that difficult to get off, then I'll keep looking...
