Default Motor Growl
Model Number: CGM2761JQ0   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Hi Gang-

I have motor troubles! Over the last few weeks motor exhibiting louder and louder electrical hum (more like growl) during operation. Yesterday after one load of wash, a very loud humm, but no start. Motor start/run relay can be heard during start switch press. About 30 minutes later after a good internal vacuuming, it starts, nominal loud hum remains. I can back drive the motor with the drum so I'm thinking motor bearings OK, seem right?

I guess the real question is how do I get to this motor? I have the parts drawing so that can be referenced.

Thanks Much,

Prof. Maneuver

Sounds like the motor start winding has gone bad. The correction is to replace the motor. You have to lift up the top panel, remove the front panel and the toe panel and remove the drum.

- The part number for the motor AP3176458

Here are the breakdown diagrams and Replacement parts for WHIRLPOOL CGM2761JQ0 | AppliancePartsPros.com

Thumbs up Thanks Gene!

Yeah, that's about as rotten a job as I expected. Somehow, my local parts guys said right motor is P/N 279787 which looks very similar from pictures. Would you change the belt while you were at it? The only thing I've ever done to this machine is a thermal fuse.

Thanks again,

Steve (aka Prof. Maneuver)

You are welcome Steve. The part number for the motor came up according to the model number you posted. It is a good idea to inspect all parts after you'll take the dryer apart. If you'll order them from APP then you should have them in one or two days.

Gene.

I would consider replacing the belt, idler and rear tumbler supports, while you have it open; just so you don't have to go back into it any time soon. Also, it's a good idea to thoroughly blow or vacuum out all the loose lint, while you have that kind of access.

Once again, thanks Magician and Gene! Great advice, this is a good forum. Will definitely go to town with the vacuum when that far apart.

Cheers!

Folks-

Well, replaced motor, belt and all the felt seals I could improvise, vacuumed out everything and recovered $.84 in change trapped between the drive ribs and the drum : wow what a difference in noise! Impellor was a bear to break loose ( yeah I know, left-hand threads). Heard the racket from the drive ribs for years; thought it was loose hardware vs foreign objects. Have some interesting "rock tumbled" coins.

Again, thanks to you experts for helping out; I'll try to return the favor!

Cheers,

Steve
