    Ok those two green with yellow striped wire on the controll panel where do they go?

  • Timothy Nierescher Jul 25, 2009

    Do you think it could be a ground and if so can I just screw them to any clean metal surface?


    Thanks alot for your time

I think you are referring to the drum bearing and the drum bearing support. The drum bearing support can make squealing noise when worn..

if the noise is not coming from the drum bearing, it can be one of the rubber pulleys in contact with the drum.

You can see the two of them in black and blue on the picture below , right below the drum.

If the drum has excessive play check also the drum bearing right at the back of the drum.

Check also blower wheel and idler pulley.

See picture here.

Also a general diagram here.

    I have wiring diagram here. There is blue yellow (to timer) but no green yellow wire. Blue yellow is going to timer guard. Neutral on this unit is white.

    Here the wiring diagram

    Hi there , The green with a yellow stripe wires are used as ground wire and connect to the dryer’s frame with the other ground wires. In your dryer wiring diagram this is not represented in diagram, then read voltage before connecting, just in case. I think it is a ground cable and connects to the appliance's frame.

The dryer won't start. The sensor light comes on...nothing happens

I am not a repair professional. I am a 78 year old man who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. So the machine ID doesn't mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and just happened to see that more than 4,700 people were asking for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer repair of my own and at that time I found an excellent video on youtube which showed me how to take my machine apart. This video (direct drive washer repair) made it possible for me to do my own repair. You probably don't have any idea of the wonderful help you can get from youtube videos. Your first stop should be at youtube. Just search for the help you need. You could search for "clothes dryer repair" or "clothes washer repair" or "dishwasher repair". If you are not able to view and/or download the videos, or after you've seen all you want to see, I suggest you go directly to where they have very good step by step trouble shooting and repair information on washers, dryers. and dishwashers as well as other appliances. Another excellent site is If you have a direct drive top load washer and need help taking it apart these youtube videos are wonderful help. I was so impressed with them that when I saw all these people needing help, I wanted to tell them about the videos. If you look at the back of your top load washer and the panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove, which would indicate you have a v-belt drive) chances are you have a direct drive and this video (direct drive washer repair) is just what you need. After you've seen all the appropiate videos, or if you have a belt drive washer, you will probably still need help in determining what the trouble is and how to fix it. I suggest you go to where they have very good trouble shooting and repair nformation on most washers and dryers, dishwashers and many other household appliances. I think you'll find what you need there. Another excellent site for DIY help is Don't worry about the timer on a washer, they hardly ever go bad. I realize I haven't solved your problem for you, but I hope I have sent you where you can get help to solve the problem. Good luck with it.

Dryers drum is not spining

I was having a similar problem but my dryer was about 5 years old. There are a couple of rubbery, sticky belts that wrap around the dryer drum. One of mine had come off the drum and was balled up, wedged between the drum and the dryer wall. It wanted to spin, but this "belt" was keeping it from doing so. I'm not sure why or how it happened, but I removed the portion that was gummed up and now it works fine.

Harmony not heating

If your getting at least 110 volts at the igniter and its not glowing red ,than replace the igniter.If you have zero volts there you have to check for a bad thermal fuse or a bad thermostat.

GE Profile Electric Dryer, Blower nt getting up to speed

On all the ones I've seen with this problem, they've needed a new blower motor. Don't take that as the golden answer because even G.E. tech support doesn't know. It could be the control board, but I haven't seen that yet. G.E. always recommends replacing the inlet thermister, which is accessed through a little cover on the back. Good luck & welcome to the wonderful world of complex electronic appliances.
