Latch wiring
« on: November 27, 2008, 04:13:03 AM »
Replaced the door latch on the dishwasher - but didn't pay attention to the wire connections - on the four prongs is it black with black / white with white or black white / black white???  Wiring diagram is useless -

Model PLD2560LCC1

The 2 solid black ones go on one switch. The other 2 (bl/wh) go on the other  switch to serve as Neutral.

Karma - I'm confused -

Should it be - looking at the posts from the front  of the latch - there are four posts - four wires (2 black / 2 white)

Keep the 2 white wires on the same switch.

Keep the 2 black wires on the same switch.
