Where do I connect the Green Ground Wire for this Electric Motor - AP4029141 ? The original motor 501211 connected the ground wire (via screw) directly to the motor's metal bracket/housing. I also noticed the wiring harness connection is on the opposite side as the original, but the harness still reaches.
Answer Josephus, Looking at the motor from the front of the machine, the motor centrifugal switch should be rotated so the switch assembly is in the 1 or 2 O'clock position, " When reinstalling motor and exhaust assembly, be sure wire harness on right side is clipped to motor mounting bracket and is routed along dryer base (between motor mounting bracket and right side of cabinet." The ground wire will attach to the rear motor bracket with a 1/4 hex head self tapping screw. The other end of the wire will be attached to the hole in the motor casing to the right of the switch assembly. This motor position will keep the wiring away from the idler arm and pulley, which moves during the tumble action of the dryer and deter any damage to the wiring.
