  • green = ground (attach directly to the case, should be a green painted screw near the opening
  • red = hot 110v connect to the red on the dryer
  • black = hot 110v connect to the black on the dryer
  • white = neutral connects to the blue (only if the blue is in the middle)
  • neutral is always in the middle with a hot wire on either side of it.
  • also make sure all the connections are tight

SOURCE: Wiring the replacement 3 speed switch (fan motor)

I called King of Fans and the rep that I spoke with gave me the correct wiring for the 3 speed switch:

L White
1 Yellow
2 Blue
3 Black

The problem is that after I wired it this way I am getting the same result (off on 3 settings and a motor hum on 1 setting). So, either the Westinghouse switch that I bought at Home Depot is not compatible or it is the capacitor. The saga continues.

"does the neutral hook up to the element?"

Yes - the element requires a neutral (white wire) connection and is generally wired in parallel with the fan.

Dryer turns on but won't heat up or tumble


Common faults -
1 The heating elements can fail (meaning open circuit)
2 There are cut-outs (T.O.C's) that might need resetting
3 The thermostats (stats) can trip out or burn out (meaning opencircuit)
4 Moderntumble dryers also have sensors and pcb's (Printed circuitboards) thesehave programs that can fail and circuitry although most should produce an errorcode showing you were the fault is.
5 Faultyconnections and burned wires may also be the fault.

Loud squealing,and hanging burnt wire off of heating element


Sometimes, there is a flaw in the wiring from the factory where the wire came from or at the manufacturer. Sometimes this is caused by "work hardening" the wire. This is where the wire is worked back and forth until it breaks or becomes weak. This is usually the cause when the wire breaks further up the wire.

you did not say how old? but I find that all it takes is one wire to get old, and starts to heat up because electric cant flow through it, then it gets worse and worse fast, then heats up the whole block, till the whole thing gets melted...bad thing is its happens slow enough that the standard 30 amp breaker won't trip during this slow melt down!

Attaching Power Cable


The two outside wires of the flat power cable are the power wires. The middle wire is neutral or ground.

Hook one of the red outside wires to the red, the other to the black, and the center one to white.
