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.

SOURCE: Diagram of wiring on Miele dryer

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.

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.

I have a GE Profile Harmony Dryer. No Power. 240v, 110v, 110v at the outlet but soon as I plug in the dryer I see 240v, 110v, 0v. Is the problem in the dryer or the power outlet on the wall?


Its not really clear to me where your measuring once you plug in the dryer, but all phases are measuring the correct voltage before, it appears you have an open circuit once you plug the dryer in. Now a dryer is 2 phase, so I would check all of your wiring connections, I would also check your circuit breaker and try swapping it out with a new one(as a last resort). Do some experimenting. In a dryer the heating elements are the only thing that runs on the 240V power. I would swap the hot leads in the dryer and see if any of the electrical components come on. Also try testing the continuity on your dryer plug wires to make sure there isn't a break in them (which can be proven by swapping the leads because now the same lead will read 0V on the other terminal).

Dryer has 110V only.Light burns when door is opened.Controle panel does not switch on at all.Each leg where power cord is attached has 110V.I have replaced Thermal Cut-off & High Limit...


Hi,
Your problem is not in the dryer. 220V circuits can be confusing in that the 110 leg can feed back and in reality you are getting the same 110V reading on both legs. Check across the two legs and see if you get 220V if not then you have confirmed what I suspect. Your problem is probably with you circuit breaker in the electric panel. Try switching the breaker off and forcefully turning it back on, You also can take off the panel cover and check to see if you have 220V across the two poles of the circuit breaker. You may have to replace the circuit breaker, it is not uncommon for one leg of a breaker ot go out especially when used on a dryer that pulls high amp. resistance loads.

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.
