someone in another forum tried to help me but they spoke the foreing language of highly technical electronics genius. They said the following but I just wanted simpler instructions like hook the red wire together with the blue wire and both of them to the hot lead of your wall outlet...can you maybe translate his instructions to wiring instructions for my wall outlet:
>The washer motor is a reversible 3 speed motor that uses the timer to do the reversing and also to determine the speed. The motor always starts on high and then drops back to the speed the timer has selected. Here is the easy part. For start, one wire will go to the capacitor, (leave the red wire on the capacitor that goes to the centrifugal switch) and the other where the yellow wire was attached to the motor. Reversing these wires will determine direction. A hot lead will go to where the Blue is attached if you want high speed and the other to where the white wire was attached. If you want a lower speed you still need a jumper wire to close the circuit the timer closed for us.
>you need to put one of the start wires with the hot BU lead and the other start wire with the WH. The easiest way will be to use the wire harness and connector from the washer. The green is already grounded on the motor and connects to your plug or wall ground. The extra plug on the side will not be used unless you choose to use a speed other than high.
>follow the wiring diagram you attached. The start winding is shown and the color wires that come to the motor match those of the washer harness and are what I referenced. The information I gave you so far is all that is needed to get it to run on high speed. To go to the lower speeds will be more complicated
So, by the above, does he mean to say the following:
1-Red, tie together to the blue and both of them go to the hot lead on my wall outlet plug
3-orange, cap off
4-white, tie together with yellow and both of them go to the neutral wire on my wall outlet plug
5-green/yello, ground wire on my wall outlet plug
6-yellow, tie together with white and both of them go to the neutral wire on my wall outlet plug
7-blue, tie together with the red and both of them go to the hot lead on my wall outlet plug
8-white/black, cap off
9-blue/orange, cap off
