The black wire is for the motor. I will find the terminal it goes on for you. Please allow me just a few minutes to prepare some information for you, thank you!

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

Place the black wire on terminal 1 on the timer and then plug the harness in.

It is a replacemetn to an existing unit are there any hints or pit falss to look out for??
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
any tips or pit falls

Every installation is different but the biggest problems come with the running of the water lines. The new dishwasher has a tall tub so it may be taller (less room underneath) than the old one. So make sure the holes for the hoses to go through the cabinet are in the correct place and be sure to make all wiring connections tight secure! Also, make sure the ground wire is connected, that is very important in the electronic models.

very good tipsohh back on the refriger
the black wire will go to the terminal 1 which is shown on the diagram that it is an orange wire
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
is that correct??

Yes, so it will only advance when the compressor runs, so it will defrost about every 8 hours of compressor run time.
