I'm replacing one speed motor on Maytag LA610 washer. The old motor had 5 wires connected to it and were red, white, yellow, black and green. The new motor is from FSP and has instruction sheet 16027065 for repair part numbers 12002351 & several other numbers. The new part is a 12002351. It has an adapter cable that snaps on the new motor and then is supposed to be connected to the old wire connections The adapter cable has wires that are red, white, yellow, black and blue. There are no notes about hooking up the adapter cable to the old wires. Is it safe to assume that colored wires on adapter cable should be connected to the same color wires on the old washer cable? That would work fine for red, yellow, white and black, but what about the blue wire on new motor and green wire on old cable. Should the adapter blue wire be connected to the old green wire? There are no markings on new motor to tell me function of each wire.

I'm sure old wiring in washer is green. I did notice on another web site that a diagram for testing a 1 speed maytag motor using a cheater cord showed that one of the terminals could be either a green or blue connection. I'm about ready to assume that blue to green is OK and the other 4 wires will be matched by color. Hope I don't get any sparks!

:):):)Hope that I am not double posting this. My computer went astray as I was just ready to post so it might have gotten posted already.

Thanks for your assistance! I did find a similar diagram last night so I got out my ohmmeter and measured the new and old motor connections to see if where I connected the old washer cable on the old motor presented the same ohmic loads on the new connection if I assumed the adapter cable connections were all made to same color on old wiring harness (white to white, black to black, red to red, and yellow to yellow) except for the green on old washer cable was connected to blue on adapter cable. The ohmmeter measurements seemed to correlate, so I installed the motor. Lo and behold it seemed to work. Before installing the new motor, I had the following problems: 1.) humming/stalling of motor 2.) Loud squeak or 2 at beginining of spin cycle especially under large washer loads 3.) Rapid knocking noise (about 4X per second during agitate cycle (not spin cycle) that I thought might be the pump. Have washed a couple of loads of clothes now, and all of these problems seemed to have gone away. Prasie the Lord!
Thanks to all of you who assisted. :):):):)
