The fat red wires go to the heater in most cases. What is you model number? Can you post pictures? All dryers ain't the same. your ques needs clarification.

Model #?
If this is a standard dryer with the idler pulley, place the pulley into the slots to the left of the motor pulley. Bring the belt through the idler so it is running on the flat side of the belt and place the belt around the motor. The idler should be placing down pressure on the belt keeping it tight. make sure there are no twists all the way around the drum or it will pop off.

SOURCE: older maytag dryer: rewiring help

If it is a usual door switch, it is simply OPEN or CLOSED (the switch im talking about ... not the door.) Translation, it doesnt make any difference. When the wires are connected in the switch, the machine thinks the door is closed. When they are apart, the machine thinks the door is open.

Make sense?


Two wires one switch it is a 'switch leg'

If I read this incorrectly, please tell me. (I answer the belt question all the time ... I usually remind people to be careful of the door switch ... )

Thanks for using

Positive comments always welcome.

Dryer door switch assembly. how do I put it back together

All the terminals should be different in size with the big terminal wire being common which goes in the middle the other 2 wires make the light come on and make the motor go so if you get em backwards she will run with the door open and the light will come on with the door closed..

Fan keeps cutting off after being taken apart and cleaned

If it was wired wrong it wouldn't run. I would suspect uneven tightening of the motor screws.
