Hi

Can you post the serial number please of the dryer. It will be on a sticker on the inside of the door then I can get the correct wiring diagram.

But you need to prefix the number with an A otherwise it will get crossed out.

Eg A12345678

Yes there are numbers if you where looing at one corner I know the black cable was connected into that port ant the number is ***** above that in the next corner is number 10 I think the black and grey coloured cable was connected to that port, then the following corner there is two ports one numbered "1" and the other "2" then on the next corner there are 3 ports following on from number "2" port numbered I think 5, 3 and 4

Hi

Ok looking at the wiring diagram it shows as follows.

2 = pink/white

10 = black/white

3 = red

5 = brown

8 = 2x blue

Does any of this tally up with what you have on you timer?
