Response to I need a replacement motor for a1.5 hp Pentair Whisperflow WF-26 (part number 011773). I currently have a 1.5 HP A.O. Smith motor number 177475. Is the Century 1.5 HP Square Flange 56Y Up Rate Motor - B2854 the appropriate replacement? Are there other options? FYI, I have tried replacing the capacitor (which was successful in the past), the shaft turns freely by hand, and the timer is turning. I suspect something either something has failed in the motor or a connection has corroded.
