Washing Machine Motor Missing Wire Harness

I have a model WMSR3110W2WW with only one problem, the wiring harness for the motor was cut out. Since I am following someone else who did this kind work, I don’t have the wire. Crimping new connectors and replacing the wire is no problem at the motor, the connector is still on the motor so identifying where each starts is easy. When I looked up the replacement motor, it has a relay (8 connections) and a (start?) capacitor in-line. I don’t find a relay left behind and there is no indication which line the cap goes on, the connectors are gone along with the wire. There is a wiring diagram, but I’m not en electrical engineer :). I have scanned it and can send it as a 2-page PDF. Has anyone seen a GE WMSR3110 lately and can identify if it needs a relay and which wires to connect to which blades on it and the capacitor?

It is a GE Hotpoint Washing Machine model WMSR3110W2WW

GE Washing Machine Replacement Motor - Capacitor? Relay? Schematic?

The new units have all of your schematics, capacitor and a higher price for a reason. With GE I avoid used parts because there is so much electronics you don't want to fry. The wire harness leads match the old and there should not be an extra wire, were would it go if there is not a receptacle for it?
I looked up your unit and the motor replacement is WH20X10009 for the model you quoted. As of now GE is has updated this to model wh20x10006 for around 263 dollars.

LE error code on LG washing machine Model WT-R801, goes through all cycles, then when supposed to spin it comes up with this error, even on a small load.

Looking at several LG Washer service manuals, the error code LE ( Lock Error) could be any one of several things: a 3 pin connector in the wire harness going to the motor, It could also be the harness itself between the Motor and Circuit Board Controller ( PWB) assembly has been damaged or cut..or the hall sensor used to detect drum speed while it rotates may be defective or the main control board ( PWB) "printed wire board " is defective. Lots to pick from but these are the likely candidates... hope this helps

Installing washing machine motor P/N 35-5022, need wiring schematic to hook up to machine internals

The black or brown connection block on the motor should be color coded to match the harness. If not you will need to remove the control panel and find the service guide sheet. This will give you the wiring diagram for the whole machine.
