I have taken apart a Hotpoint TDL 31P Tumble Dryer to clear

Resolved Question:

I have taken apart a Hotpoint TDL 31P Tumble Dryer to clear lint and fluff from inside the machine (not one of the affected models) I mistakenly disconnected the suppressor and now don't know how to rewire/reconnect. There are two black wires from the suppressor and a Green/yellow wire. The Green and Yellow we have reconnected to earth. There are three wires coming from the base of the dryer, a Blue wire, a darker blue wire and a white/brown wire. They all need to go into the connection block. Need your help to reconnect safely... Can send photos if needed. Many thanks, Colin.
