New install; where to hook up old wiring/plug to ASKO

Trying to wire ASKO with standard plug from Whirlpool. Don't see black/white/green wires in ASKO. Does this thing take a special wiring harness?

    I do not see any "loose" wires. There are a grey wire, a white wire and 2 green& yellow wires that are plugged into an existing connector in the front. This would seem to be the right location for a connection because there is a strain reliever right next to this and I assume that the hook up is made here and the wires are then passed through the strain reliever towards the back of the machine. However, it seems like this is not the usual connection made by just twisting the wires together with one of those plastic caps.

    I cannot get behind the front panel. Removed all screws. BUT, Called ASKO and they emailed a wiring diagram which is a little tough to read for me. So I am still at square 1+..

    I figured it out. Have to think like a Swede. Wires go in like some speaker wires go into back of speaker. Undid screws, inserted wires, tightened down screws. Done. Thanks for doing some thinking about it. appreciate it.

There should be an installers/repair guide folded up behind the front panel. Check for that as it will show a wireing diagram. I won't be able to get any info until Jan 2. Let me know what you find.

Amana DW adb1100aww New install won't start

have you checked to see if the white and black (or hot) wires are reversed.
It is very common to have this problem.
some plug wires have a smooth edge and a rippled side, one wire per side and the ground wire is green or in the middle.
if there is a side that has a rippled edge make sure that it is on the black wire of the dishwasher and the white to the smooth side.
I remember this in this way: if i hook the power side to an oscilloscope it would show a wave pattern and if I do the same with the common or white wire then it is smooth a straight line

Is the black wire negitive and white wire postive

The Black wire is the Hot or positive wire and the White wire is the nuetral or negative wire.
The green wire gets hooked to the frame or any metal part of the dishwasher...usually there is a green screw inside the little box where the wires hook up

Trying to wire the pump motor. Blue, red, black, white and green. Green is grounded to the frame, but I don't know what the other wires do. Please help.

The black and white wires supply power to the motor so that it rotates clockwise when the machine is in it's wash cycle. The blue and red wires are opposite to the black and white. This makes the motor spin counter clockwise. The machine will be in it's drain mode mode when the blue and red wires are live.

I lost my manual and i can't fiqure out how to connect the dishwasher. i see the light that shows what to wash but the power buttom is not on

When you say connect, I assume you mean you are installing or reinstalling a dishwasher. With the power off, you always connect the black wire with the black wire on the dihswasher. This is the HOT or the LINE wire. The white wire hooks to the white which is the COMMON wire, and the bare copper wire connects to the green screw or green wire and is the GROUND. If you are using a pig tail (plug in connection) the common wire will usually have a line or series of lines going the length of the wire. Just be sure you identify the correct wire because a dishwasher will run with the hot and the common connected backwards which can create a dangerous situation if a short develops inside the dishwasher. Use wire nuts twisted on snugly and enclose all wiring connections in the connection box. Hope this helps! Ken

I am installing a dishwasher. When I went to wire I had only two wires a white and blue comming through the house wiring and a white and black from the dishwasher. Does blue go to black. White to white...

If you have a volt/ohm meter you can check for Power on the Blue wire. Or you can open the face of your fuse box and look to make sure the Blue wire is connected to the fuse. If it is, just hook up your Black from dishwasher to the blue from house. White to White ( Neutral). There is no real way to ground the dishwasher if your house wiring is a 2 wire (old) system. You shouldn't have a shock hazard if the wires are in the junction box for the dishwasher.
