Need a color coded wiring diagram of the timer M460-G for the GE electric dryer DSXH43EAOWW


All GE dryers have a wiring diagram inside the control panel on the left side as you stand in front of the dryer. It should show the wiring in black but with color coding listed for each wire. If yours is missing I will try to locate a copy. SearsPartsDirect use to have some wiring diagrams on their parts site.

What is Code p2 on a Kenmore electric dryer?


error code indicates that the electronic control board detects an open thermistor (temperature sensor). This is usually caused by a failed thermistor. It can also be caused by a wiring problem or a failed control board.

To troubleshoot this problem, follow these steps:

Unplug the dryer to completely disconnect electrical power. Shut off the gas supply.

Remove the bottom front service panel as shown in the first image below.

Locate the thermistor on the blower housing. The second image below shows the thermistor. It should have a red/white and a black wire attached to it. Pull at least one wire off and measure the resistance across the leads of the thermistor using a volt/ohm meter. You should measure about 10K ohms (10,000 ohms) of resistance at room temperature. If you measure infinite resistance or get much different reading, then the thermistor will need to be replaced. Even if the thermistor reads the correct resistance at room temperature, it could still be defective and giving a bad resistance reading at higher temperatures.

If you suspect that the thermistor is good, check the wiring connection at the main control board (black and red/black wires on the P2 connector). The procedure for accessing the control board is shown in the third image below. With the dryer still unplugged, pull the P2 connector (see diagram of board) and check the resistance through the black and red/white wires. NOTE: The wires down below at the thermistor must be properly attached back onto the thermistor to properly check this circuit. If you get a much higher resistance (or infinite resitance indicating an open circuit) when measuring this circuit from the wires at the control board, then you could have a wiring failure that is causing your problem. If the resistance is the same, I recommend replacing the thermistor and testing the dryer to see if it operates properly.

If you still get the error code after changing the thermistor, then the control board will need to be replaced.

De 407 maytag dryer how do i find a wiring diagram


the Maytag dryers would have the diagram either INSIDE the control panel, OR on the back of the control panel. Neither are color coded as there never was a color coded diagram ever printed. The diagrams do list the color of wires and show where they start and terminate. That is all a service tech would require to troubleshoot. If the diagram has been removed, you could try an online search.

Kenmore 500 series gas dryer has no heat and no glow. Thermostat fuse has continuity. Replaced ignitor and coils. bypassed flame sensor and still have the same problem.


Hello,

Having checked or replaced what you have thus far here a few things still to check

Cycling thermostat in blower housing,in addition to thermal fuse it must have continuty to be good

Timer check wiring diagram in control panel and check for continuty that are supposed to be closed when set to a normal heat cycle

Motor switch heat circuit check again with wiring diagram and see which wires on motor switch must be closed when running so dryer will heat.This a built curcuit asurring the dryer will never heat when motor is off

If your model has it check heat relay in control panel for continuty on heating circuit for relay(not the circuit that closes relay)

as far as power to the ignitor the hot side comes from timer to and through the thermal fuse and cycling t-stat, to ignitor.the neutral comes from neutral wire on cord to and through motor when motor is running and motor switch is closed

so on ignotor plug check hot wire to ground(not neutral) if has 120 vac to it timer/t. fuse/ cycling t-stat and flame switch are all good and its the motor switch is the problem.The motor switch can not replaced seperatly and must replace entire motor

Amana ALE643RBW Dry will not start. I checked the thermal fuse and the high limit thermostat both read 0 to 4 back to 0 ohms. It was jumping around back and forth. Checked the heating coil it read 10...


Hello Dale,

Having checked the thermal fuseto be good i will give you a partial list other things that could make the dryer not start

start switch

door switch

timer

circuit breaker, use your meter set to volts ac and check for 240 vac at the outlet,if 240 not at power outlet check for burnt connection inside outlet or bad circuit breaker

if 240vac at outlet check for 240 vac at terminal block on back of dryer where cord connects,if 240 at outlet but not terminal block replace cord , if burnt connection at terminal block,replace cord and block

finally the motor,manufactures do not publish wiring diagrams online and the only way for me to tell you to use jumper cord to check motor is find the wiring diagram inside of control panel and place one wire on the terminal indicated as neutral on wiring diagram and one wire on terminal indicated on diagram as run winding

firstly though check door switch to have contunity (0 ohms) and the start switch to have (0 ohms)WHILE PUSHING IT IN(the start switch isa momentary contact switch and will only have contunity while its pushed in)
to check timer again use wiring diagram and find chart that shows various cycles and with timer set to a cycle the two wires is says will have contunity will be indicated by a solid black line on the diagram

Good luck, Gene

I need a wiring diagram for a Kenmore 110.86872100. replacing the thermostat and the heater element, don't want to cross wires. Can you help?


If you remove the cover from the back of the dryer control panel there will probably be a wiring diagram for your dryer folded up and taped to the back. Something to try if you can't find it otherwise.

Power went out on dryer (including interior light)


Try resetting the dryer circuit breaker pair in the house electrical panel--push off, then on. If no help, look for a circuit breaker button on the back of the dryer. If still no help, then a voltmeter will be needed to service some portion of the dryer interior. You will need a wiring diagram to make sense of the voltage readings. Good luck!

Wires came unplugged from behind control knob


Below is the link to the wiring diagram to your dryer, it should help some. In addition what I can tell you is that most appliance components have initials next to the connections that indicate what color wire is supposed to be connected to them, this is where the diagram should help. In cases of things like switches, buzzers, thermostats, things that only have to do with circuits being open or closed they will not have an initial so therfor it doesn't matter what wire goes to what connection. Post again if you need more help. http://www.appliance-parts-warehouse.com/frigidaire-parts/Frigidaire-Dryer-Parts/Frigidaire-Parts-GLER331AS2/Frigidaire-Parts-50169.cfm

Kenmore dryer


The start button is a low current signalling device that supplies power to a relay, the relay latches, to supply heavy current to the heater and motor, until the timer switch or door switch interrupt the latching circuit and disconnect the relay.
Relays fail
the connector for the latching circuit may have come off
examin inside the control panel for a device that looks like
8d35bce.jpg, may be opaque or mounted vertically with wires connected to the bottom.
trace the wires from the start button, it should be the first device connected.
If any wires have come off relay, or other terminus of wire reattach and test operation of dryer
If no wires off, -replace relay
label carefully wires as they are removed, or replace one wire at a time, from old to new
generic dryer circuit looks like this
c062e7f.jpg the relay is the two switches at right connected by a dashed line to show linked operation. Circuit diagram has no relevance to physical position of components

WIRING DIAGRAM


The manufacturer normally places a wiring diagram inside the operator console. Remove the back panel and there should be a diagram taped inside. Some of these diagrams will show two circuits. One is for a gas dryer, and one is for an electric dryer. Make sure you reference the correct one. I hope this helps you. If you need further assistance please let me know.
