Old Maytag Dryer LDE409 Motor replacement wiring
« on: November 16, 2013, 08:31:45 AM »
This old maytag electric Dryer went thru a flood ruining the tech sheet and rusting the motor I broke the motor loose and cleaned it out ran fine for a little while then seized up. The replacement Motor (Part Number W10410999 ) is much different of course. This is the old wiring. Black to 1, Blue to 2, Two Whites to 4, Red to 5, Yellow to 6. This is the New motor wiring from install sheet. Gray to L1 1/4 tab, Red to 5, Blue to 1, Black to 2, Yellow to 6.. Is my white my gray ?? Any Ideas? I really dont want to have to draw up a new wiring diagram for this dryer. Thanks for your help Guys

I assume you have a heater in this dryer and not a gas valve.
 If so, remove the cover of both new and old motor centrifical switches. In both switches you will see a single pole switch that is open and a two pole switch that is closed in one position. Wire up the new motor to get the same circuit as the old one.

Hope this is clear. A final comment, if you had dried the old motor in an oven, then oiled the bearings, it would not have failed.
