New dryer motor wiring help please!
« on: May 07, 2012, 11:21:24 AM »
Hi all!  Me again!

So I thought I had my motor wired correctly per the old one, guess not!

When I press start the motor hums, I move the drum to help kick start it, it spins, then I believe it's the overload relay that kicks in.

Even without the drum tensioned the motor does not spin by itself.
Think I wired it wrong?

Here's the original motor wiring, yep, that I did take a pic of while waiting on the replacement motor:



And here's 2 angles (some were visible in my 1st thread) of the new motor wiring:



Thanks!

1) Dryer model number ?
2) did this Dryer work OK for you up until the Motor went bad ?

And yes of of course it worked!
Why else would one replace a motor!  ;)

Notice where it is on the old motor, & how the old switch has YL stenciled on it, but no connection.
All I did was follow suite when installing the new motor.

Nah, I've had this washer/dryer since 98 as it came with the condo I bought.

The original pic is how it was originally wired, I did not move it.

By the way...if you look at the picture supplied by AJ in your original post you can see the wiring order.

It's not the same.  Notice a lack of a purple wire, AJ's pic also shows a doubled up yellow.

Lets focus on my before & after as the before is correct.
