Kind of at my wits' end here, and wondered if you guys would be able to help me out. I'm working on a pretty basic Jenn-Air electric dryer (Model no. JDE1000W), trying to swap out the faulty original motor with a replacement (Part no. W10410996). The two motors have different switch connects and I had to do a little bit of rewiring, guided by a handy table in the instructions that came with the motor.
Now, for the problem. The table in the instructions covers five different wires that you have to swap over to specific terminals on the new motor — but I've got a sixth. There's a white and red wire coming off the original motor that feeds into the top terminal of a thermostat (Part no. 31001192) mounted on the blower wheel housing. On the original motor's side, that wire is hooked into an unlabeled terminal behind terminal no. 3.
I've attached a picture of the wire hooked onto its original terminal. Hoping that helps.
The instructions that came with the motor make no mention of the wire, and my thorough Googlings have uncovered nothing.
