Customer Question

I have an old DE406 Maytag dryer. I'm having trouble reconnecting the right wires to the motor switch terminals. Confused about which wire goes where.

Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The wires are color coded. There are dots on the motor switch that correspond to the wire colors. Is the sticker on the motor switch missing?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The sticker is not color coded. Only numbered. Attached to the motor, switch facing out, on left hand side starting at top connectors, numbered 6,3 and 1; on right hand side, starting at top connectors, numbered 5,4 and 2. Thanks

I think my switch is a little different. It is a 102AC, 3ASM9D183. And wires from the motor are blue, orange and black. Wires from the harness are white, yellow, blue, red and green. Thanks
