Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am Appliance Guru an extremely experienced tech on the site and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now. Answer: It plugs in on the front side of the pump it is kinda hidden if the pump is in place. Check the link out here and as you can see the spades are vertical so line those up and it can only go one way as one side of the plug is taller. CLICK HERE All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, tips are greatly appreciated so thank you very much for using this service. If you have any other questions just post back to me here anytime!

Can you describe what this plug looks like? Also how many wires go to the plug?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
3 wires in white plug attached to blue with gold clips that are attached to pump
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 7 months ago.
This is an image of the DRAIN PUMP and the only wire connection that goes to it are you sure you are talking about the drain pump? CLICK HERE
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Yes
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 7 months ago.
OK that wire connector that is noted as (Not connected to the pump) is the connector that connects to the front side of the pump CLICK HERE Put the connector (red arrow) where the other red Arrow is pointing.

Can't figure out didn't this connect to something
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 7 months ago.
That plug just connects to the pump where the arrow points...it is the only place it goes I have worked on hundreds of these units...the plug port is just on the front side of the pump where the red arrow points.
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
There is no inlet to plug in or any red arrows
Customer: replied 7 months ago.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Tried to send pictures again
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Guess you can't help me tried to send images . Now what. Can't spend more money to call you
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 7 months ago.
I finally got the images...where did you get the Blue capacitor from?
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 7 months ago.
I can tell you where it goes but where is your plug to your pump I do not see it in the pics?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
This white plug , somehow went into this blue . This is the pump and and how it came out
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 7 months ago.
Yes the BLUE CAPACITOR goes to the expose terminals and the plug goes to the recessed ones do you see that?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Sorry I'm not getting it. Will show to my husband later.
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 7 months ago.
OK then get back to me I will be around all day I may be out for a bit to cut my grass so if I do not reply do not worry I will when I get back in!
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Sir this is the husband there is no way this white plug fits on to the recessed fitting
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 7 months ago.
Ok you only have 4 spades on the pump correct? Two are for the capacitor and the other two are for the plug so whichever you can fit the plug onto that is the one it goes in. It was hard to see in the pic for me, let me know and then try it
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
There are only two spades and the capacitor is on that
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 7 months ago.
OK on the white plug are there two wires going to it and could the BLUE capacitor plug into the back of the WHITE plug itself?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
There are two wires but the white plug is to big to plug into anything I wasn't home when my wife pulled it out
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
You have not resolved my problems I assume I will not be charged
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 7 months ago.
I have been trying to assist you with the issue the best I can I am only a tech that works through the site and I am not paid anything unless a good rating is given and then only a small amount. If you do not want to continue that is fine, just let me know
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I need to hire a tec and shouldn't be charged- I'm mechanical inclined and I can't figure this out no point in continuing I'm getting nowhere
