I purchased a new motor to replace the original one and wiring is completely different -no color coded tabs now. Where do my wires need to connect? Note- I do not have a gray wire. My dryer is a Maytag DE808
Answer Hello Bob.
The wires should connect as follows:
White to tab on motor protector (remove the blue jumper if present)
Red to tab 5 (have to install 1/8 inch spade connector to connect it)
Blue to tab 1
Black to tab 2
Yellow to tab 6 (have to install 1/8 inch spade connector to connect it)
I have a new W10810999 Motor and drive unit and I can not figure out the wiring set up from the old motor to the new motor W10810999.
Connect blue wire to terminal 1, black wire to terminal 2, red wire to terminal 5 and two yellow wires that are connected together to terminal 6, remove blue jumper wire and connecting white wire to 1/4" protector tab.
