240 Volt Connector Order

Hi,

Silly me forgot to write down how the 240 Volt power cord connectors and earthing connectors were orientated. Has anyone worked with the GW712 that could email me picture of how the connectors are placed back on or have a wiring diagram? I do have a JPG of the way I have currently connected but cannot see how to up load it. I do not know how to earth it correctly as I have a left over conector.

Thanks in advance,

Mark Street

    I know the user manaul calls for an authorised agent. I have serviced the machine myself and removed the power cord when I serviced it. I cannot remember where all the grounding wires are connected to. I do have a picture of what I am talking about but cannot see how to upload it. Can anyone provide me the electrical schamatics?

    Regards,

I rewired the unit in its 3-prong orientation and have plugged it into our 20A outlet. In the current orientation, only the dryer works. However, if I switch the black and red wire, only the washer wo


if i understand correctly you have it connected to a 240 volt circuit protected by a 20amp breaker, then you should have it on a minimum of a 240 volt circuit protected by a 30 amp breaker ,then you should have 120volts from the red wire to the white neutral wire and 120 volts from the black wire to the white neutral wire,or 240 volts between the red and black wires, then the unit should operate correctly as the dryer needs 240 volts and the washer uses 120 volts to operate as this is how the unit is wired to operate

It makes a noise as if its spinning but the drum doesnt go round


Hi,iI have just had the same fault, and as described elsewhere, the solution was to replace the motor brushes. I would say this took 1/2 - 3/4 hour to remove brushes and same to replace.
How:
1.DISCONNECTED ELECTRICITY SUPPLY
2. Disconnected water
3. Removed the 1 screw from back panel, removed panel to get access to remove belt.
4. Lay washer on it's side (2 people recommended)
5. From underneath machine, unscrewed 2 bolts on the motor (back of the machine)
6. Holding the motor so it did not fall and get damaged, carefully tapped end of motor to unmount it from holding pegs (slides towards back of machine)
7. Noted how the plastic cover fixed to motor, then snipped tie wrap holding it to motor.
8. Unplugged connector and earth connector.
9. Carefully removed connector on each brush.
10. AS THE BRUSH WAS SLOWLY WITHDRAWN, checked the orientation of the bevelled edge of the brush relative to the motor so the new one was fitted correctly (the end of the brush is angled so it sits flat against the motors commutator)
11. Replaced brushes and refitted in reverse order.

Take care

How do you change pressure switch on this model??? Service tech is looking to charge 80 dollars for part and 40 for labor.


Hi.

Replacing the water level pressure switch is not a difficult operation. Here guidelines.

  • Disconnect the washer from power. Either unplug the power cord or trip the circuit breaker.
  • Pull out the appliance and place it in a space where you can work.
  • Disconnect the water hoses .located at the back of the appliance
  • Remove the four screws that hold the top panel to the body of the machine and pull up the top panel. Be careful while lifting the top panel, its edges are sharp and you may get harmed.
  • Disconnect connector from the water level pressure switch. Disconnect also the connectors hooked to the water valve solenoid contacts if necessary to access the water level pressure switch.Always mark the connections with tape and labels or take a picture before disconnecting the wires. The pressure switch has only a two wires connector attached, and wires orientation does not matter, but get used to note down all disconnected wires.
  • Remove the clamp holding the hose and disconnect the vacuum hose from the water level switch.
  • To remove the pressure switch, push down the metal tab on the rear panel plate and rotate the old switch until it gets loose.
  • Install the new water level pressure switch by following operations in reverse order. Ensure that all hoses are well connected, and that all wiring connectors are in place.
Replacing the water pressure switch is not a difficult operation, however remember to observe strictly all safety prescriptions.
Before replacing the switch you can try blowing into the vacuum hose attached to the pressure switch, this sometimes can fix an apparently faulty pressure switch.

Before replacing the switch this can be tested either jumping its contacts, or using a multimeter to read Ohms on switch contacts, and check if the switch is opening and closing the contact. With no pressure applied to vacuum hose the switch must have continuity and low impedance, otherwise the switch is faulty.

The water pressure switch is part nr. ten on the diagram shown below. Click on the picture to enlarge the diagram:

Hi, I live in Argentina and I have a kenmore 96093800 Dryer. This Machine has 120/240v and his plug has 4 pins. Two pins are flat, one pin is cilindric, and the fourth pin is en angule. How can I connect...


Are you connecting this Dryer cord to the Dryer or are you looking for a wall plug with this same configuration to plug into. This is a standard double ground configuration and you can buy the wall receptacle at a hardware store. Your house should have 4 wires to this, 2 lines, a neutral, and a ground. As always the recommendation is that you have an electrician install your house receptacle. Your Dryer power cord is something you can install however. The two outside terminals on your dryer 240 volt wiring block are connected to the two outside wires on your power cord. It does not matter which wire goes to which side. Your two inside wires on the power cord are connected like this. One to the middle terminal on your 240 volt dryer terminal block and one is connected to the dryer case itself. Again it does not matter which wire goes to which ground. Make sure all of your connections are tight, as loose terminals eventually burn up. Do Not plug in your dryer power cord until everything is hooked up tight. I actually had a customer plug in his cord and then try to connect the wires to the dryer. The wires arced together and blew the terminals into molten metal which burned this customers hands and face. Do not do and electical repair unless you know what you are doing. On your cord the two straight terminals are line terminals, the round and L shaped terminals are grounds or neutrals. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists
