The insturctions indicate I should connect the red wire to the new motor at terminal #5 and the blue wire should be connected to terminal number 1. But in the last column of the table of connections (in a cell for red and blue), it says to "Reterminate the Red and Blue Leads in the same 1/8" Insulated Terminal and Connect to Switch Tab 5". It sounds like I am being instructed to attach blue to both #5 and #1. How do I do this? Should I apply Quantum Mechanics?
The red wire comes from the console above. The blue wire is actually a white wire from the console above joined with a blue wire from the door switch into a terminal which was connected to a blue-dot labled terminal on the old motor. I am assuming that this is what they mean by the "blue" wire.
All of the other colors match the instructions and are connected and accounted for.
I tried to post a picture of the section of the instructions I am referring to, but it did not seem to take.
I just went to the hardware store and a widely known electronics store and neither place had 1/8" terminals. They do have 3/16" inch so I guess I could use those or just crimp down the 1/4" terminals and set up a blast radius around the laundry room.
