Hoover Elite 1205 washing machine

Hi, when moving to new house, we dropped the washing machine and the power cord was disconnected from the machine. There are 3 wires that need to be reconnected. There are a number of points that they can be fitted to. Was wondering if you have a diagram of how these wires are connected, so that I can just reconnect them. Thanks

How to replace the cord in dyson's dc07


Things You Will Need



  • Dyson DC07 power cord


  • T15 Torx-bit screwdriver


  • Small can


  • Camera or cell phone with camera


  • Flat-head screwdriver, 3/4-inch or smaller


  • Needle-nose pliers



Tips



  • Do detach the black wire that goes to the motor as it does not require removal.



Warnings



  • Do not work on the power cord when it is plugged in.


  • Do not force the plastic-covered connectors from the switch or you could break the male ends. Pull them off firmly but gently to avoid breaking the terminals.


  • Do not apply too much force to the plastic arms that hold the housing in place. The plastic arms are fragile and may break easily.



References



1 - Unwrap the power cord from the Dyson DC07. Detach the handle of the vacuum cleaner by pressing the release button. Pull the handle from the hose. Slide the hose down the wand and push the button at the bottom to release the hose from the machine.

2 - Press the button at the top of the dust bin handle to remove the canister bin assembly from the Dyson DC07.

3 - Lay the machine on with its back with the power switch facing upward. Locate the Torx screw directly beneath the switch actuator. Remove the Torx screw, turning it counterclockwise. Place the screw into a small can so you do not lose it.

4 - Remove the switch box housing held in place by the Torx screw just removed. Carefully pry upward on the two plastic arms that clip the housing in place. Take a picture with your cellphone or camera of the open housing to make it easier to reinstall the wires where they belong in the channels and spaces provided.

5 - Center the needle-nose pliers on the female connectors from the power cord attached to the switch. Apply equal force to pull them from the male ends of the switch. Also detach the two wires that connect together within the housing, identified by the clear plastic connector between them. Depending on your machine\'s manufacture date, the wires might have different colors. For example, they may be white and brown, all white or one could be blue. Disconnect a total of four wires -- two from the switch and the two connected together. Leave the other wires alone.

6 - Trace the electrical cord on the machine until you reach its protective cover where it enters the Dyson DC07. Lift up the cord protector to remove it from the vacuum. The cord protector has slotted sides that fit within the plastic. Slide the cord protector from the power cord.

7 - Remove the plastic covers that protect the female ends on the power-cord wires that connect to the switch. The new power cord does not come with these. Insert the tip of the flat-head screwdriver through the top of the plastic connector with two internal ridges. Lift upward and away to pull the wire free from the connector. Repeat for the other wire. Push the female end into the plastic connector until it snaps into place. Repeat for the other power-cord wire.

8 - Thread the new power cord through the cord protector. If you have trouble pushing the wires through, reach in with the needle-nose pliers to pull both wires through the rubber protector.

9 - Reconnect the two separated wires back together by inserting the male end into the female end of the other wire. Reconnect the two wires from the power cord to the switch. Reinstall the switch housing on the machine. Align the wires in the channels provided to keep them from being pinched or pulled out when you reassemble the housing. Look at the photo you took earlier as a guide, if necessary. Insert the wire that goes to the motor in this channel and the white wires connected together to the left of the switch in the area provided.

10 - Put on the switch housing cover and secure it with the screw you removed earlier. Reassemble the vacuum in the reverse order you dismantled it.

E11 code on the dispay


Error code E11 is a dryer thermostat problem. The wiring, by design, is too short, and secured too tightly up and behind the digital display, and extends to a connector located on the machine's drum housing. When the machine is in motion, and there is a degree of drum movement back and forth, left to right, the wire disconnects resulting in Error code E11. Your issue may be that the wire is loose, and not fully disconnected (yet) hence the fault being intermittent. Error code E11 requires a service engineer to reattach the thermostat wiring in a way that allows for the drum housing to move, as per it's design, without the wire being disconnected from the drum housing connector, when the wash load becomes unbalanced during the wash cycle.

We had to switch cord FROM 3 prong to 4 prong due to our new house. Yesterday dryer was working fine and today at new house with new cord it is not working at all!! Can you please help me!


Good day,
First off check your power with a meter at the dryer. You should read 120 volts from the center terminal to the left terminal and 120 volts to the right terminal. If one side is not active, then the motor would not run.
As well, the common problem many times is the door switch. It will cause the same problem.
If none of the above solve your problem, then it's a case of tracing the wiring of the machine in total until you discover the issue, which easily could be a loose or disconnected wire or wiring harness.

The setup should look like this.

Old 3 wire.

Need to change power cord on maytag dryer from 3 prong to 4


Always disconnect electricity before beginning this process.

All the 4 wire cords I have seen are color-coded. The white wire goes to the middle terminal, the green wire goes to any screw you can reach that goes into the metal case of the dyer. The red and black go to the outside terminals of the block and while it doesn't matter which color goes to which terminal I usually follow the color code of the interior dryer wiring that already exists. Good Luck.

Dryer outlet does not have common wire.


You can replace the 4 prong with a three prog cord found at Lowes etc.

First, disconnect the black wire, one of the "hot" connections, from the left side post by removing the terminal screw. This is one-half of the 240-volt connection.
Next, disconnect the red wire, another of the "hot" connections, from the right side post by removing the terminal screw. This is the other half of the 240-volt connection.
Then, disconnect the white wire from the center connection. It is used for the neutral connection.
Now, disconnect the green wire from the machine case by unscrewing the green screw.
The next step is critical to return your electrical connection to factory condition before installng the 3-prong cord! Locate the white machine wire that is now connected to the neutral (center) screw terminal. Disconnect it from there and install it under the green ground screw.Connect the outer two wires (hot wires) to the outer two screws, obviously, one on each screw.
Now connect the center wire (neutral) to the center post. You'll notice the white machine wire is now the case ground connection, unlike the 4-prong cord connection in which the green wire from the cord makes the ground connection.

Machine fuses house RCD if a drying cycle is selected


Suggest you turn the power off, remove the top cover, diconnect the live and neutral connections to the dryer element (likely to be two of each flavour of connection if the machine has high and low dry settings). Pop a bit of insulating tape around the wire ends so you don't short anything out. Now try to put the machine through a drying cycle. If it works (albeit cold) without tripping the house power, you need a new dryer element. If the house power still trips, turn the power off again and without reconnecting the element wires, disconnect and tape the live and neutral wires from the blower motor. Again, try to run a drying cycle. If this stops the house power tripping, then it looks like a motor problem (though this would be quite unusual). If the house power still trips, you need to have a careful look at all the wiring between the main timer, the dryer timer, any hi/lo heat switch, the blower motor and the element with its associated thermostats and thermal cutouts (all located near the element on the air duct). Look in particular for chafes where wires go round corners, and where wiring crosses from the case to the suspended machinery in the middle of the machine. Pop any follow-on queries in the comments section of this question - I'll keep half an eye on it. A.
