Question WIRING DIAGRAM HELP Whirlpool dryer
Model Number: LEC7848DQ0   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Hi, hopefully this is straightforward to someone experienced. I purchased a new timer for the whirlpool dryer, started installing it wire by wire in 2's. so as not to mess up, and was left with this error. There is a black wire that comes with the timer with 2 black leads already connected passing through the timer mechanism. One of the black leads goes to part of a triad (3 posts) which also hold 2 blue wires.
Here's my problem: when i disconnected the two BLUE leads and the black one on the one corner of the OLD timer, I thought i remembered the black one being installed BETWEEN the two blue ones. When I looked at the new timer, it has the black lead for that triad on the corner end, which would leave the two blue leads right next to each other...one in the middle and one on the right.

If you can picture this, the outer two of the three posts run parallel, and the middle one perpendicular. I remembered the black one being the middle/perpendicular one, but as I went to attach, it seems the NEW timer has the black one on the leftmost end.

I didn't dare leave this to chance---it may only malfunction if I'm wrong on a cycle, but it might also blow the timer---I'm no electrician!!

Anybody out there who might be able to help me figure this out, either via a wiring diagram they have, or common sense on which posts the blue leads would attach to? I tried reading the Whirpool diagram on the control panel but it does not specify EVERY wire like this, only the BLUE SECTION.

I thought I did a decent job learning how to troubleshoot with a meter, and found it was not the thermal fuse or start switch that kept it from turning on, but a likely burnt contact in the timer. But then I screw up on a simple wire!!!

Thanks for your help, its FRI and my wife threatens to go buy a new $1200 dryer if this is not in operation tonight!!!

Here is the timer, I think.
Part number: AP2973903

Part number: AP2973903

Click on the picture a new page will open with more views.
Then click on the view of the timer's back.
It should expand so you can see it better.

I am assuming you are talking about the left side top connection.
All 3 connections are common re: it is all one stud.

When you look at out old timer you will probably see that the 3 connectors are also connected together. They may have a strap between them.

Ok, thanks for your reply, I'm just not that bright at this aspect, which is obvious from this question-----are you saying that if they have a common stud, it really doesn't matter which one goes where in their ordering? That sure seems sensible when you say it, so in toner words I was sweating about nothing?? I'd feel as dumb as calling a repairman to my house only for him to find it was unplugged!

Thanks again, I hope I understood your note correctly!

Yes if they are common it does not make a difference which wire goes on which connector.

Dumb would be plugging it in and having an arc and spark so I would not sweat it.
