How do I wire up a Craftsman Electric motor? I have three

Customer Question

How do I wire up a Craftsman Electric motor? I have three wires: black, white and ground(green). I have###-##-####Electric motor. Where do the wires go. There are no instructions. It appears the black will go on black tab, green is ground but I have a white wire and no match. Inside the motor I have a red wire with no real match. While I have a brown tab that has a connection tab associated. And I have a tab not associated with any wire. So where does the white cord wire.
