I have a Maytag Dryer model number LDE8420ACW that was give to me. The yellow, blue, purple and 2 white wires that connect to the power terminal block that the power supply cord hooks to are not connected to the terminal. I would like to know what wires hook together or what they hook to. It is a 3 (prong) wire terminal block. The 5 wires mentioned have numbers on them if it is of any help the 3 wires coming from the control panel are labeled white-22 , purple-23 , yellow-34 and the 2 wires coming from below are labeled blue-28 and white-29.

  • Please re-read that post and revise, adding periods to make sentences. Some of it is difficult to decipher.

  • There is usually a schematic inside the control panel or inside a removable panel in the back.
