Question about Maytag Dryers
The fiive wires that I need to reconnect are tied together and consist of a blue wire with a # 1 on it, a white wire with a # 3 on it, a red wire with a # 2 , a yellow (green striped) with a # 30 and a green wire with a diamond shaped smudge that could be # 4.These wires need to be reconnected to what I believe is called the terminal block which is attached to the motor. Again, the connections sites are numbered from top to bottom on the lefthand side 6,3,1 and from top to bottom on the righthand side 5,4,2. Three wires come from the motor, which I did not disconnect, are connected to this terminal block.a black wire at position site # 3, a blue at position # 5 and an orange wire at position # 4. You can connect two wires on these positions on the terminal hlock (one to the rear and one directly in front of the wire.) The black wire is attached to the front location at position #3 and the blue and orange wires are located at the rear of the position 5 and 4 respectively. I am reasonably sure that none of the 5 wires that I need to reconnect came from the rear position.at # 3. I believe that the five wires I removed need to go at positions 6, 1, 2 and in front of the blue and orange in position 5 and 4. The only other thing I can think to tell you is that the blue wire from the motor at psotion 5 has a factory piece of tape with several capital Y's on it. I have pictures of this part that I can send. Thanks Ed
Man I been digging around in the shop for my copy of a DE606 manual I have to no avail. hell I might have even thrown it away.
Well you have a common wire, a start wire,a run wire and 2 larger wires which carry the heater load. go with the 2 larger wires on those terminals for the cent switch. White would be common so that leaves 2 to guess at seems to me those might match number for number. Just guessing cause I ain't worked on one of these halo of heat models in years.
