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

This answer was rated:

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.
Hi Colin, Can you tell me the serial number of the appliance.. There are 4 wiring diagrams for this appliance and the correct one depends on the serial number
