LWD70AL Washing machine extra wires?
« on: December 01, 2008, 03:01:25 PM »
When replacing washing machine pump and spinning the drive motor around to remove pump notice two red wires were disconnected from what appeared to be from the plastic connector to the motor. After looking closely to see where they may have been disconnected could not locate. The two red wires have larger connectors than can fit into the plastic connector. Are these just two wires that go no where or am I missing something?

They go into the black capacitor next to the motor.
