Appliance Tech Care :

can you id the part off the drawing i linked to you?

Customer:

Sears manufactured a plastic inner insert that bolts at the center of the motor.

Customer:

I think sears wants to sell me the motor. Because i cannot find this plastic insert part sold seperately. It is 7 " in dia. or so.

Customer:

It might be a part number PBT-GF30K

Customer:

Sorry,This part is 4" in diameter.

Appliance Tech Care :

Let me link a service manual to you, then you can ID the part and maybe I can see what you mean. My guess is this a not a part you can buy but part of a larger part. How did you break it?

Appliance Tech Care :

I have to go to work,
I'll check back
If you have any other info for me.
I can't find that part number you gave me.
