Hi.

I recommend you to replace the motor and individually connect the wires without the plug. Also cut off the overheated area and put a new contact on the heating element wire. Make sure the connection is tight.

Thank you.

Simon.

Are you saying to cut away the burned area on the plug for the yellow and black contacts, and install them individually, and then use the remainder of the plug for the gray, white, beige and green contacts? I think I would prefer to do this. I could not see an easy way to remove the good contacts from the plug.

I understand to cut off the burned wires at the heating element and replace with a new connector.

Regarding the new motor, I see now that it is already in a cage (see attached pic). It looks like there is a clip on either side of the old motor that holds it down, correct? My other question is regarding the blower housing - does it simply spin off of the shaft? I do see the threads on the shaft of the new motor.

Hi.

You can connect the wires as you wish as long it's done properly.
The blower is threaded on the shaft.

Thank you.

Simon.

Can you describe more detailed what and how did you check?

What is the complete model number of the dryer?

I dont know where to find the model number It is a whirpool gold I have tried everything I

pulled it appart to pieces and checked every thermostat and fuse available the ones on the

blower fan casing and the ones on the heating element casing i disconected both wires on

each fuse, thermostat, and element and tested for continuity with a multimeter I checked

for any signs of loose wires on the motor I also washed any areas where lint was starting to

build up and I pulled it away from the wall thinking maybe it was the exhaust but no luck,

today I rebuilt it and tested plugged in and it looks like the heating element is not turning

bright red but there is some heat another thing I noticed whenever you touch the dryer

bbarefoot it will shock you, I placed an external ground line to the external ground

connector in the back goind to a ground rod but it still gives a shock when you touch it

barefoot

Remove the wires from the heating element terminals and check for continuity between each of the terminals and the ground.

The name plate is usually located on the dryer door frame.

Hi lexmp, replacing the motor did solve my problem. When I replaced the motor, I did find some of the contacts severely burned and to rewire them. This was probably the root cause of the problem.
