Question about Whirlpool Dryers

1 Answer

I have a Swhirpool Gold Dryer Model #GEQ885EQ0 and need to know where to look for the wire diagram for hookup. I don't have a book and it isn't shown on the dryer. My stupid son took the wires off and we can't find them. I need to buy new ones. Can you please let me know what to buy.

If you are referring to how to properly connect the power cord to your dryer, the following link explains how:

Please note there are TWO different types of appliance power cords. There is a three-prong configuration and a 4-prong configuration. These appliance power cords can be purchased at any hardware store. Just make sure that whatever power cord you purchase matches the receptacle you have in your home.

If you need a wiring diagram of the dryer, the manufacturer usually includes one inside the operator console. Just remove the back panel of the operator console and one should be there.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know.

NOTE: I believe your model number may be "GEQ8858EQ0". I could not reference anything to the one you provided.

The fans dont turn them on. there is engine overheading. need the cadillac deville 1999 diagram

You should be able to find this in the Haynes manual for your model. Many car parts stores carry these books.

The first troubleshooting steps you can do without a diagram. Inspect the fan wiring to make sure it isn't damaged. In particular, check the connectors for corrosion. Also (with the battery disconnected or the engine cold), check the fans to make sure you don't have a pair with bad bearings. They should spin easily with no slop or wobble in the bearings (worn bearings can bind up).

Replace electric cord

First,follow manufacturers instructions if possible.

If you need a 4-wire cord you will attach the black wire to one of the gold or brass colored screws on the dryer hookup and the red wire to the other brass or gold screw. The white wire will connect to the silver screw and the green wire will connect to the green screw or to a screw that is connected to the frame of the dryer.

If you need a 3 wire cord you will place the two outside wires (if looking at the cord if laying flat), one on each brass or gold screw.Next there should be a metal strip or jumper that you will place to connect the green screw connected to the frame of the dryer and the silver or white screw together. Then place the white, or center wire, on the silver or white screw.

Instructions that came with the dryer should show you how to do this.

Make sure the cord is unplugged before unhooking the hold cord or installing the new one.

If you see something different that what i describe or need anything else just write.
