I'm trying to replace the motor on my gas dryer and the wiring diagram doesn't match for the new motor: Current I have 1 yellow (2 yellow wires), 1 gray, 1 red, 1 black (2 blk wires), and a blue and white wire tied together. The instructions say to put the red and blue wires together (which are the neutral wires) I see other questions where someone put all three wires together (red, white and blue) and the dryer just runs. I found the electrical diagram in the control housing, and the red is not wiring as a neutral connection... So, where should the red wire go? The replacement motor they recommended is W10410999. suggestions?

Rich for Model Number LDG982AEE

ANSWER Rich, You will want to wire the unit in accordance with the electric wiring rather than the gas. The Yellow will go where it was originally connected to #6, Red wire to #5, gray wire to 1/4" thermal protector tab, Black wire to #2, and blue and white to #1. You may need to put the jumper between 1 and 5.
