Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The black wire does indeed come from the motor. Once the motor starts, the centrifugal switch sends power to the element via the black wire. That way, if the motor is not running, the element cannot heat. The element gets one side of the 240 VAC from the timer and other from the motor.
