How many wires or on the plug that does not fit?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Six wires
Appliance Technician: MASTER-TECH, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
If you look at the plug there is a small peice of plastic that divides the inside of the plug. Find the matching cut out on the green board on the left side of the of the motor control.

The end of the motor harness has a "flap' piece of plastic with plastic 'teeth' looking things. The board is not green, the plug on the board is a pink color. The plastic 'teeth' don't fit securely into the board slot (it has a lot of floppy play to it. Most confusing. Don't see any way of getting any 'contact' between the wire and the board.
Appliance Technician: MASTER-TECH, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago

In the plug end are there six tiny holes or are ther two slots?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
The plug end has holes (metal looking connector type). I could fold the plastic flap inside the space in the board. That leaves the wires on the underneath side of the board but it's more like plastic on the wire plug up against the boards metal contact areas.

Can I get back with you tomorrow. I want to open the part so I can go off of the real thing. I am using memory and look up drawings that do not have much detail. Will you be on in the morning?
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago

Understand. I don't know what time I might be on the computer tomorrow, you could email me. I'll see if I can't get a firmer connection......it might be that the wire harness has a duel purpose end......or the kit had some mismatched something. Thank you so much!

Appliance Technician: MASTER-TECH, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago

I'm at the neighbors house. They have a unit like yours. I just want to make sure, here.

1) The plug has 6 wires and 7 places?

2)The green wire will be on the left side when you are plugging it on the board?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Yes 6 wire 7 places and green wire on left.
Appliance Technician: MASTER-TECH, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
In the middle of the opening of the motor control board is there a red peice of plastic on top of that part of the board?
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
It's kind of dark pink and has a bunch of plastic slots.
Appliance Technician: MASTER-TECH, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
When you push the plug on here it is still loose?
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Yes, it is loose....not snug. Should I be bending the plastic slap on the wire harnes dow into the 'hole' on the board? That's the only way I think it might 'snug', That seems 'forced' like it might damage the board.
Appliance Technician: MASTER-TECH, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
The green wire should be on the left. There should be a slot on the board to receive the divider on plug. Look inside the plug and make sure nothing is miss molded. The plug should go on the board about 3/8 of an inch.
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
I'm sure that I haven't pushed the divider in far enough. I was able to get it more snug just now. Thank you for your help. I sounds like I have the right wire harness ending....but why it has female receptors is a mystery. Suspect is is a duel purpose end. Thanks again.
Appliance Technician: MASTER-TECH, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
No problem. Glad to get you taken care of tonight. Thank you...
