Thank you for your help on wires #23, #24, #44,and #22. I do have the wiring diagram and have looked at the original timer. My question is what should I do with wires OR 20, Y-BK 43, RD 41, YL 42 that are also on the old timer?
Thanks again for your help.
Answer Scott, There's an issue with the model number or the timer. If you have four left over wires and there are terminals on the original timer for those wires, we're orderring and recieving the wrong part.Basically, the original timer is for a more elaborate dryer, with several other options than a LDE7400 is designed for. Look at the original timer, and look for a number, similar to "308222" on the tag or actually printed on the body of the timer. My diagram shows four terminals and four wires attached to the timer terminals, If you have four wires left over, we have the wrong timer, for your dryer, regardless of the model number. Thanks
I ordered this part for my model number listed above with the serial number a5112239 and this timer is triangle in shape 4 terminals and the one I am replacing is square with 8 terminals. Could you please adv me of the installation of this part and why it is different from my org?
Answer Scott, The physical appearence of a part is dependant on the part manufacturer and location, Just because it looks different, doesn't mean it won't work in your unit. As long as both numbers on the timer body are the same(308222) and the color code at the terminals are the same you'll be fine. As for eplacement, unplug the power cord or rremove power to the unit. Remove the two inside screws form the top corner of the control panel and pull out at the top of the panel. Use a small blade screwdriver and pry out on the edge of the dial knob center. Remove the 3/8 inch nut holding the knob/dial to the timer shaft and slide the assemblies off. Unscrew the two 1/4 in. hex head screws holding the timer body to the control panel backing plate. Switch wires from the original timer to the new timer, one wire at a time, using the same terminal designation, not the location of the terminal. Reverse the procedure and test the dryer operation. Good Luck and Thanks
