Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I am installing a dishwasher. When I went to wire I had only two wires a white and blue comming through the house wiring and a white and black from the dishwasher. Does blue go to black. White to white and how do I gound it Thanks George


Answers :

If you have a volt/ohm meter you can check for Power on the Blue wire. Or you can open the face of your fuse box and look to make sure the Blue wire is connected to the fuse. If it is, just hook up your Black from dishwasher to the blue from house. White to White ( Neutral). There is no real way to ground the dishwasher if your house wiring is a 2 wire (old) system. You shouldn't have a shock hazard if the wires are in the junction box for the dishwasher.

I'm attempting to reuse a Maytag dishwasher motor for a bench grinder. Since this is a reversible motor, I'm not sure how to connect the wiring to a simple switch so that it works in one direction only. The motor has 4 wires: blue, gray, red, yellow. Not sure which to connect to the hot (black), return (white) and ground (bare) wires from the romex and can't find a wiring diagram online for this dishwasher. Any ideas? Thanks.
