Reg,

I just picked up a junk Whirlpool washer that was set on the curb for Spring Cleanup.  I salvaged the motor (the same one in this thread)  for a project and wired it just as you said earlier in this thread.  The motor works great.  I'm just wondering... if blue is the high speed, what wire is the low speed one.  The only other color wire on the harness is orange, and it doesn't appear that there is a wire that connects to that pin in the plug and goes down into the motor like the blue one did.  The only other wires that are unused that go from the plug down into the motor are brown and black.  Are these different speeds (similar to the blue) also?

Thanks,

Gene
