DRY MOTOR WIRING DIAGRAM
Dryer motor wiring harness? Which wire is what?
I recently salvaged a dryer motor and exhaust assembly from a clothes dryer, however, plugged into the motor was a wireing harness. Which wires in the harness do what? pic 1 pic 2 EDIT: motor part number is 3395654 EDIT2: Figured it out, the blue is live, the white neutral, and as always, the read morereddit/r/DIY · Dec 22, 2015What exactly are you trying to do? Get some more pics of the wires going into the motor assembly. It looks like there's some information there? Maybe a centrifugal switch?1 voteYou need the make/model of the clothes dryer it came out of. Then find a wiring diagram or service manual for that dryer. Or you could take it in to an appliance repair 1 voteThat motor is 120VAC1 voteI believe the black, what/red& green are all you need. The blue is for the start switch and the reds provide the second leg of 120VAC to the heating element.1 voteYoull probably have to get the original wire diagram to know for sure. Try searching the model number and see what comes up1 voteSee allSee all comments
How to Wire a 120V Dryer Motor for Use in Other Projects?
I have a Whirlpool Dryer Motor (Model Number S58NXMKE-6674 or Part Number: 3395652) Image Below: This is a type of universal motor that uses an electromagnet instead of a permanent magnet in the stator region. I have a hypothesis that I may be wiring this device improperly.The motor circuit is probably something like the following diagram. The start circuit could include a centrifugal switch that opens when the motor reaches full speed. It may or may not include a series capacitor. It could be contained in an electronic control module. If there is a centrifugal switch it may have more than one contact. One contact may enable the heating when the motor reaches full speed. Manufacturers sometimes change configurations without changing the model number of the dryer. A replacement motor for a given dryer may not be the same as the original motor.Best answer · 2The two large red wires are part of the heating circuit and have nothing to do with the motor windings.. when the centrifugal switch closes it connects those two red wires which allows the heating circuit to run.. it’s a safety against running the heater with the motor off.. if you look inside the metal cage on the end with the plug connector you’ll see the centrifugal switch mechanism. there will be a plastic disc about 1-2 inches in diameter with a beveled edge. if you slide it slightly along the shaft it will trip the centrifugal switch and allow you to better test circuit paths through the motor.. alternatively look up whirlpool dryer wiring diagrams.. these motors are pretty identical across all models.. also they’re all gonna be 110 even in a 220 dryer.. it uses line 1 to run the motor and only the heating element gets line 1 running into line 2.. typically line 2 is run across those large red lines to power down the heater when the dryer is off.. on a gas dryer it just interrupts the 110 to the heater ignition circuit.. Edit: It should not need a start capacitor, the motor turns the drum with a belt, on the motor side it has a small 1 inch diameter pulley, on the drum side it wraps around the entire drum so it does not need a whole lot of starting torque.. Also you can take the cover off of that connector compartment and get an idea for how the centrifugal switch affects the contacts, the switching mechanism is entirely within that box..1One of the red wires goes to the heating element the other goes to the internal bias thermostat.. I have this motor on my dryer and I am trying to figure out how to check the centrifrugal switch in it0
