Question about Dryers
I'm replacing a GE 17x32 with a Ge 17x10010m but I don't know the connection sequence. to the centrifugal switch. help is much needed and deeply appreciated!
just remember on a 3 wire cord(if it is gray) the middle wire always goes on the middle of the terminal,the 2 outside wires get mounted one on each side on the terminal broke,if it is a 4 wire cord the white goes on the middle of terminal block,the red and black get mounted one each each side of the terminal block(it does not matter which side you put the red or black wire they are both 120 volt) the green wire gets mounted to the cabinet where ever you can mount it(to metal) your done-mike

Hello, Welcome to FixYa.
I've attached an image of how the kill switch/belt switch should be connected to the motor in regards to GE dryers.
Contacts 1 & 2 are for heating and close after the motor starts.
Contacts 4 & 5 (& 6) are for the start-run windings and open to run through a centrifugal switch in the motor...this is when the run windings and heating contacts close.
The kill switch should be connected to #5 on the motor and the other side of the switch typically (depending on pcb or mechanical timer) goes to the timer.
example, (let me know if it's too small)
Hope that helps you move forward to getting the motor wired correctly. I realize many times the replacement motors come with alternate wiring, however through determining which contacts are open or closed in the "run" state should verify where the wires go even if the switch is numbered differently.
Let me know how you make out and I'll see what I can do to help in whatever manner I can.
