Default Over & Under dry timer crazy after motor replaced
Model Number: LSE7804ACE   Brand: Maytag   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


TWO PROBLEMS? (3rd problem is that I'm working on a dryer that someone else has already been working on... I hate that!)

This is not the same unit mentioned in the heading model# but the one I'm working on is essentially the same exact one (they look the same).
I ordered a new motor for this dryer for a friend because she told me the motor was bad... got it off of that e-auction site. The motor received looks just like 306055 on this site. Supposedly it is a direct swap for AP4037997. The motor looks the same but the terminals are very different so I need to know how to wire this motor... blue, yellow, red, gray wires? The original motor has yellow, black, blue wires .. the new motor has only a blue wire and two bare wires which are not color coded. The original motor has connectors on a different looking switch as on this motor.
I think I FINALLY got the switch on the motor figured out using an ohm meter but sure need someone to confirm how these wires are supposed to connect.
Once I FINALLY got this motor running so the thermal switch didn't shut it off another problem showed up. The timer seems to run constantly. It just keeps turning and will not shut off at the end of the cycle. I don't know if this is because someone screwed with the wires or because maybe the timer is messed up or if there is some other problem. I'd GREATLY appreciate someone who knows about these things helping me figure out what's going on or what the problem is. I sure don't want to buy a timer if that's not what the problem is. I prefer to diagnose the problem rather than just throw parts at it. PLEASE HELP if you can!!!

Hi Randy,

In order to provide most accurate advice we need the correct and complete model number of the dryer. Having it we can get the correct wiring diagram and parts list.

No, it's not because in order to get the correct replacement part you have to use the correct OEM part number. I understand that your point was to save some money but this is a wrong way to do it which led you to more problems. If you can, return it back to the seller.

Gene.

I suppose that something is different about those numbers then. It's the number I got off of the motor and it pulls up the same number when I do a search on the internet.... and those two motors pictured have the same number 306055. Both motors look essentially the same and both fit the bracket and shafts appear to be the same. I have a near identical washer/dryer at home and it's Model Number is LSE7804ACE. When I looked up the motor on appliancepro's site it come up with W10411000 which looks exactly like the new motor I have, same type terminals. Apparently this motor interchanges with several model numbers.... but it does not have the same switch & terminals as the one in the dryer I'm working on (as in the lower picture in original post).

Check out the following thread: wiring a dryer motor

It might help but I can not be sure without proper wiring diagram.

In regards of the timer problem: if you don't have the correct model number, then can you get at least the part number form the original timer? I don't promise anything yet but it might help.

Gene.

Thanks. It could be days or even a week or two before I go back to where the dryer is... but I will get the model number for sure. All I have available at the moment is the stacked unit at my home which appears to be identical. If I find a way to get the model number I'll be sure to post it. THANKS!

Okay. I just looked at that thread and if memory serves me correctly it is the same as the conclusion I came to by using my ohm meter. 1-2 blue, black complete the circuit to the heating elements when the motor is running. 6 yellow provides the current that is switched to 5 Red or 4 Grey... for starting and for running or something of that nature. I do believe my tests and deductions got it right. The real problem appears to now be in the timer which runs continuously. I'm thinking the points inside are stuck together which does not let it break the circuit in the off position. At no time does the buzzer work.

We have to wait until you will get the model number.
