If you have a volt/ohm meter you can check for Power on the Blue wire. Or you can open the face of your fuse box and look to make sure the Blue wire is connected to the fuse. If it is, just hook up your Black from dishwasher to the blue from house. White to White ( Neutral). There is no real way to ground the dishwasher if your house wiring is a 2 wire (old) system. You shouldn't have a shock hazard if the wires are in the junction box for the dishwasher.

Lg LDF6920ST has no power. I went to turn on to run and nothing happens. Does not light up or anything. Was working fine this morning. Now nothing. Checked and made sure the breaker was not blown.


First check the small electrical box at and behind the kick plate below the door. Possible loose connections, usually wire nuts make the connection, turn them clockwise to tighten, check for melted wires at the connection. If all ok test there with a voltage meter at the white and black wires. Should be around 110. If nothing house issue, if power dishwasher power button or eoc issue. You can reset the eoc by disconnecting power for 5 min then reconnect.

For a maytag dishwasher WU900 need a wiring diagram thanks Norm




Each component should be labelled clearly on your diagram. Look at figure 6-A. The symbols used to represent each component are pretty universal.
Wire colors are abbreviated and shown next to each wire. For example, Y means a yellow wire, V means Violet, R means red, LBU means light blue. Black is usually abbreviated BK, blue is usually BU. GR or GN are green, GY is gray. A wire color with a dash or a slash means --- with a --- stripe. For example BU-W means Blue with a white stripe, T/R means tan with a red stripe.

Is the black wire negitive and white wire postive


Hi,
The Black wire is the Hot or positive wire and the White wire is the nuetral or negative wire.
The green wire gets hooked to the frame or any metal part of the dishwasher...usually there is a green screw inside the little box where the wires hook up

Trying to wire the pump motor. Blue, red, black, white and green. Green is grounded to the frame, but I don't know what the other wires do. Please help.


Hello,
The black and white wires supply power to the motor so that it rotates clockwise when the machine is in it's wash cycle. The blue and red wires are opposite to the black and white. This makes the motor spin counter clockwise. The machine will be in it's drain mode mode when the blue and red wires are live.
Regards

I was given a dishwasher and need to know how to install has only two wires


The wires on the Dishwasher should be Black and White

Black Wire is the Line or HOT Wire

White Wire is the Neutral Wire

Green Wire From the House goes to the Frame of the Dishwasher.

There might be a screw in the box area that is conected to the frame of the dishwasher and this will be the ground. ((((( The metal frame of the Dishwasher ))))

I wired a ge dishwasher ..white to white and black to black. the ground..green wire a screwd to the dishwasher.. turn it on and everything worked ok til the pump came on and the the black to black...


Well, hard to say at this point. Your wiring sounds correct, but there may be some other stuff going on which you may have not anticipated. First off, what size breker is attached to the wires you connected to the machine. Most household machine require a 20 amp breaker. If you had fire, my first concern is the breaker in this circuit is either too large, or not functioning correctly.
Secondly, because the problem occured when the wash motor engaged suggests a problem with that circuit.
You don't say much about the machine itself, so I am wondering if there may have been some water in the motor or maybe some wire are shorted to ground on that circuit.
Look for burn marks around the motor and it's wiring and repair all you find.
Hope this helps,
Kermit
