Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.
So the part number has changed for this model which is probably why you can't locate the fan motor
The new condenser fan motor you'll need is WR60X10209

Now, I'm not sure exactly how you know that the condenser fan motor is bad. Possibly it's just not running? But one thing you want to check is the control board. Often times on this model the condenser fan motor will short out one of the resistors on the control board when it goes bad. If you remove the 8" x 10" sheet metal panel on the back of the refrigerator, there is a control board behind it. Look for any burnt or blackened resistors and if you see any, you'll need to replace both the control board and the condenser fan motor.
the new part WR60X10209 carry the same specs as the the WR60X10081 and is it a 11.3 dc 2.2w?
yes, that is correct. 11.3 DC and 2.2w. It's also the ONLY part that will work for this model number now
Do you think I should order two replacements since this seems to be a regular occurrence with this model?
No, I wouldn't order two. The newer part is supposed to have been re-designed and should be more resilient. You really shouldn't have any future problems with the fan motor itself once you replace it.
Was there anything else I can help you with today?
