Maytag dryer DG8000 motor replacement
« on: April 10, 2012, 09:53:11 PM »

I have a similar problem as User strobelite1 encountered.

I have an older Maytag Dryer, DG8000.  It originally used the Y303358 motor.  I recently bought a replacement motor.  It is also a W10410999.   I downloaded and reviewed strobelite1s Maytag_Elec_Diag.  It is different from mine, as mine is an older model.  I have attached my wiring diagram.

My old motor had the following wires connected: White (jumpered with light Blue wire to another point on the switch), Red, Black, and Yellow.

I have no Gray source wire.  I noticed strobelite1s gray wire came to the motor from the Thermal Fuse.  My diagram shows the Yellow wire from the motor connected to the Thermal Fuse. 

I have no Push-to-Start wire (Yellow on strobelite1)

As a comparison is this how my switch should be wired up?

Yellow connect to 1/4 Thermal Protector tab.
Red Change to 1/8 and connect to #5
White connect to #1
Black connect to #2

Do I need a jumpered connection to #6?

Thank you in advance,
