Hello there. It is always risky buying a motor that hasn't been flagged specifically for your washing machine. It is even possible for two washing machines with the exact same model number to have different motors fitted. It's not common, but changes to designs and parts can be made in ways that mean the exact same model number has different configurations inside. When buying a new motor from a manufacturer or a white goods appliance spares site they never use numbers on the actual motors themselves. They use specific part numbers created by the manufacturer. The exact part number that you need is determined by a combination of the full model number and either serial numbers, or production numbers. 

Looking at the links you posted it looks like they don't use the proper part numbers, and instead use numbers printed on the motor. As I say this is never the case when normally buying a part, but if buying second hand it might be more useful. If you haven't already, you need to remove the motor and look at all the numbers printed on it and see if you can match them up to any of the ones for sale.

Other than that if they specify that  a specific motor will fit your model you might take a chance. You cannot go on looks because various things could be different on otherwise very similar looking motors that just prevent the motor from physically fitting. Manufacturers can often deliberately make things so that they don't fit in order to prevent people using parts from other models that might be cheaper.
