      [Webinar] Appliantology Workshop   11/09/2017

      Information is the name of the game in the appliance repair trade today. Appliantology is a powerful information tool for the professional appliance repair technician. But just like with any of the more capable tools in your tool bag, many of the more powerful features are hidden from you unless you "read the manual." Ugh! Who wants to do that? Well, this is one time when you don't have to! In this webinar, Team Samurai will personally walk you through the site and show you many of the useful and powerful features that even long-time users probably never knew existed.

Ok The wiring that was sent are not all the same colors.

I took pics of the way its hooked up now and a pic of the wiring diagram. They are attached.

So here is what it is wired like now.

Pink on the bottom which I think is #1 goes to idler spring switch

#2 Brown goes to hi limit Thermo

#3 Red W/ Black Stripe goes to the front panel I assue the mositure sensor/ and a black wire that goes to the Terminal block

#4 Dark Yellow goes to Door Switch

#5 2 pink wires one to the Cycling Thermo and one to the element

#6 Yellow ground does go to ground

Can you help from this. I hope so.

Thanks

Should I go by the diagram from manage my life on an earlier post, for what the numbers are ie. M1 M2

Brown goes to hi limit Thermo

(2 wires)Red W/ Black Stripe goes to the front panel I assue the mositure sensor/ and a black wire that goes to the Terminal block

Dark Yellow goes to Door Switch

(2 wires) purple wires one to the Cycling Thermo and one to the element

Yellow ground does go to ground

Pink wire goes to the belt switch

1) Brown goes to hi limit Thermo

2) (2 wires) Red W/ Black Stripe goes to the front panel I assue the mositure sensor/ and a black wire that goes to the Terminal block

3) Dark Yellow goes to Door Switch

4) (2 wires) purple wires one to the Cycling Thermo and one to the element

5) Yellow ground does go to ground

6) Pink wire goes to the belt switch

1) doesn't Brown go through the Idler Spring Switch (and turns to Pink) before it gets to the Motor? >>> Pink would be M6

2) I only see one Red/Black wire and it also connects to the larger Black Wire from L2 power >>> M1 (Motor Centrifugal Switch)

3) wiring diagram shows Door Switch wire is Brown/Yellow >>> M4

4) Heater Element Purple >>> M2 (Motor Centrifugal Switch)

5) Yellow is Neutral >> doesn't go to Motor Connector

6) Pink >>> M6

Just the tech sheet. I maybe able to get the Instruction Sheet for the new motor from my local parts company. But that wont be till monday. This motor is wired differently from the old motor. Yes the motor terminals are numbered.

1 at far right on picture through 9.

This site shows a different combination for M1, M2 etc. but when I hook it up that way the motor and element come on as soon as you put it on any cycle.

Tried latest configuration you sent me still motor just buzzing as soon as I pluged it in. If you goto the managemylife post link'd above you can see the numbering of terminal posts, click on the picture and scroll down to the bottom of the pic.

Also if I hook it up according to the managemylife page the motor and heater come on as soon as you put it on any cycle. I dont have a blue so I put the purple on that terminal.

Black and Purple are 220v for the Heater...

Don't worry about them for now..

If connected to the wrong terminals, it could ruin your Motor

Leave them disconnected for now (taped)

another thought...

do you have pictures (or notes) of your "old" Motor (Switch) before the wires were removed ?

and what wire colors do you have on the Motor...

your wiring diagrams says:

Red from Start Switch

Brn/Yel from Door Swtch

Pink from Idler Spring Switch

Black from L2

Purple from Heater Element

have no red.

Other than no red the above what was last posted is correct.

No notes or picks of previous motor wiring but the tech sheet I posted shows the original.

pink to idler arm switch

yellow to door switch

purple to element and cycling thermo

brown to hi-limit thermo

black to terminal block/ (a red wire with a black stripecomes off the black wire connector goes to I think the door light. It goes inside door frame.
