I have a fallow up question that involves reinstalling the motor. The new motors wire connections are different the old motor. What fallows is the wire pattern from the wire diagram that was inside the dryer when I took it apart
The Old motor is wired
Terminal # Wire color destination Wire color that goes inside
stays inside motor
1 Black Ground none
2 Violet high limit none
3 no wire out black
4 Yellow/Black high limit orange
5 Blue Start SW Blue
6 Brown timer none
The question were do these wires go on the new motor?
2 number is XXXXX on the bar but no flange for a wire
4 again number on bar but no flange to attach anything
7 these three wires go from terminals orange
8 to spots inside the motor Blue
9 this terminal is marked GND no wire attached
I hope this info is helpful I will not work again on the dryer till Friday night
There is no rush on your answer
More info on new motor it is the GE universal Dryer motor WE1710010
This is one that Repair Clinic gave as the replacement for my current motor
As I can see the fore mating of my last response did not come out very well
As far as instructions that came with the new motor they do not take into account the absence of Terminals # XXXXX and #4 on the new motor and both have wires attached to them on the old motor
Some one has to have come across this issue before given the number of these dryers out there.
This is the OEM part GE has replaced the original motor on several modles with this motor. Can you get me touch with someone who may have incountered this before? At this point I can not progress further with the repair with of doing harm to the new motor.
Well thanks for the feed back. This is what I have to work with on the new motor Terminal #1 (no wire going out) Terminal #3(no wire going out) Terminal #5 (no wire going out) Terminal #6 (no blade for incoming wire) Wire going out of #6 is black. Terminal #7 (orange wire routed to inside of motor. Terminal #8(Blue wire going inside motor) Terminal #9 no wires but spot is marked GND
There are no blades or wires @ terminals 2 and 4 just the raise numbers @ those spots
I found a referance online from a appliance forum were others had the same issue I have, neither of the 2 places had any solutions.
Working on the issue tonight will get back to you tomorrow or so thanks
OK! Dyer now running just got to put the rest of it back together tonight'
Just two small questions. I was testing the rotation of the drum with the door open and holding down the cut off switch with the heat on medium.
The top of the dryer got realy hot back by the control pannel. Now the control pannel was not hot just the lid or top of the dryer toward the rear.
With the little bit I know I am thinking since the door was open the dryer could not vent the hot air from the coils out and retained it in the back of the dryer. I ran the dryer with the heat on high with the door shut as it should be and the same spot on the lid of the dryer stayed cool.
Other question I did the rookie mistake and had 3 screws left over all the small type like the ones that hold the back panel on the dryer. Looked with a flash light and could not find and holes not occupied by a screw.
All else seems well
