Kenmore washer: Electrical question

7 posts in this topic

I have just re-installed the tranny on my washer and think I put the wires to the "wig-wag" back correctly.  Before I fire her up, could someone please verify I have it right.  As I look at the washer through the service access area on the lower back (as the washer lies on it's front) the wires are as follows from left to right:  double white, single white, yellow, red.

Is this correct?

thanks

My photographic memory rarely fails me, even tho I am at home I can see the page in the Whirlpool book from 20 years ago and also see the back of the washers that were in our shop,  lined up all in a row, waiting for us to bring them back to life replacing trannys and control magnets, motors and tub grommets  Pumps and snubber pads.  If I had a $ for every time I had to tell my employees where the wires went after I told them the week before I could retire....LOL

Seriously if I was in the market for a used washer it would be a most recent available Whirlpool belt drive that had been all gone thru, it would still out last a DirectDrive - only problem in 10-20years when it did really start breaking down again there probably would be hardly any chance of finding parts.
