Hello!

 

OK, I just want to make sure I'm wiring this thing up correctly for a Maytag MTB2172HRB.  Can I just copy the wire orientation from the original relay?  I.e. if the blue wire's on top, it would be white wire in the bottom left, orange wire in the bottom right?  Does it really matter how the orange and white wires plug in?

 

Instructions make it sound like it's the other way around.  They also call for the white jumper wire to be installed on terminal #1 on the relay, but there really isn't a terminal #1, so there's nothing to connect to.   And I don't think I need the jumper, all connections are 1/4 on the wiring harness.  

 

Thanks in advance!

The instruction is wrong.The white wire goes on terminal 2 on the relay and plugs into a wire that has the 3/16 terminal.Blue wire goes on overload.Orange wire on terminal 3.Got to use jumper.

Ah.  I see it now.  I had to order a new wiring harness as well, the relay failed with burn marks on the back of the unit and completely fried the orange wire close to the connector.  Looks to be the orange wire in the harness that has the 3/16 terminal.

 

Really appreciate the quick reply.
