SOURCE: need a wireing diagram for

Hi,

Often the wiring diagram maybe found in the console area or under the dryer top panel. Due to regional differences in electrical code and power requirement, wiring system hence the diagram may differ. Additionally, it would also differ if you are using a 4 wire outlet or a 3 wire hookup.

At this point, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional who is very familiar with the electrical/power system of your area as well as general wiring of dryers. Should you venture a DIY, pls post back power requirements/availability whether for a 240/120 or 110/110.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: WIRING DIAGRAM

The following link explains the proper wiring scheme for installing a 220VAC power cord to an appliance:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r793520-3_prong_4_prong_power_cord_conversion

Make sure you also have a dedicated outlet and power source for your dryer. This means a single outlet with a single circuit breaker. Most homes are constructed this way to ensure safe operation of the appliance and to prevent improper loading. If you have questions, please let me know.

As far as a wiring diagram is concerned, most manufacturers place a schematic drawing inside the operator console of the appliance for troublshooting purposes. I hope this helps.

Hello cpopp101,
Please follow the link and goto page 30 for the electrical requirements. The manual is for the T8012 but all the dryers are the same for electrical. Goto page 30. There is usually a seperate fuse box for these (Depending on how old the dryer is) in which you may want to contact Miele to see if you have

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.

Hi Pete,
On the side of the motor on the label should be a wiring diagram. The diagram will tell you how to wire fro high 220v and low 110v ...
If the nameplate is single voltage only then the motor cannot be rewired for the lower voltage...
Also check the motor RPM nameplate as compared to the others...you may have a 1725 motor and the newer ones a 3450 motor...that would give them double the RPM's if the gearing or pulley sizes are the same...so.. if you have the right voltage and the RPM's of the motor are the lower, then you possibly could change the pulley sizes to speed up the compressor...

Lots to check and think about...

AO smith compressor motor missing toggle for duel voltage


Most motors will have a wiring diagram on them with numbers not colors, and show the wiring configurations for both voltages. If you do not have this then you may want to contact a motor shop and see if they can get it wired for you.

The more I look at this motor the more I think that it is a stepping motor and not an AC motor... I could be wrong, but checking the windings and seeing the small Tach Motor on the rear leads me to believe that this is not a ac motor, but a stepping motor and is triggered from the programmer for rpm

Ge dryer #DBXR463ED2WW does not start and power is going to dryer


You said, GE dryer #DBXR463ED2WW does not start and power is going to dryer

Here are the 5 most common reasons for your Electric dryer not to start.

Door Switch
The door switch must be operative before the dryer will start. Ensure the door switch strike is properly actuating the switch and if so, check the door switch for continuity with an ohmmeter for proper operation.

Faulty Drive Motor
If the motor will not start, it is possible it is defective. The wiring of the motor is different for each brand and you will need to refer to the wiring diagram of your dryer for the specific terminal locations. You will need to use a volt/ohm meter to check for resistance between the run winding and common (may be referred to a neutral). If there is no resistance, the motor is open and will need to be replaced.

The motor bearings can also go bad. A dryer with a motor in this condition can sometimes be started by hand and it will run. However when the motor gets hot the bearings begin to seize and the motor will stop. In this condition you must also replace the motor.

Electric Dryers:
On Electric dryers you will need to check the heat element for resistance. With the power disconnected, remove the two wires connecting to the heat element and check the resistance of the heat element by using a volt/ohm meter. The resistance should be between 5 and 50 ohms of resistance. If there is no reading the element is defective and will need to be replaced.

Heating Source
If the element is not receiving power it is likely that one of the thermostats is defective.

Thermal Fuse
The thermal fuse is in series with one leg of power to the motor. If the fuse is open (no continuity) the motor will not run.

Location:
The thermal fuse is located in different locations according to the model and brand of dryer.

Solution:
Check the thermal fuse for continuity with a volt/ohm meter. If it is open, it will need to be replaced.

Timer
The timer is the source for power to the motor and if the timer contacts are defective, there will be no power getting to the motor. Since the wiring is different between brands and models, you will need to refer to your wiring diagram for terminal locations. Once you have located the correct terminal for the motor operation, you will need to turn on the dryer and check for 110v from the timer terminal for motor operation and the chassis ground. If you have the voltage, the timer is most likely okay and the problem is elsewhere. If there is no voltage, the timer is defective and must be replaced.
