Electrolux Reversing dryer
« on: April 28, 2010, 06:51:19 PM »

Does anyone know where to find or have a service manual for this dryer?
It's a stackable on the front loader washer. It's 1996 Electrolux FSE747GES0 dryer. Electrolux won't communicate or sends me a useless owners manual.
After installing a new door switch I impatiently connected the wires to it in reverse. It's a 3 wire. I burnt the primary motor coils insulation and am lucky that all the parts still have continuity when they should. I'm replacing the motor of course . I'd like to make sure that there's nothing else damaged by my mistake.
If you can help I can exchange your effort with knowledge of building houses and cabinets if you like or other areas related to that.

Wow this is a weird dryer. They leave all the basics in place and screw up perfection with a reversing motor? Never heard of it. What would be the reason to reverse the motor on a dryer?  Can't wait to see myself what others come up with on this one.

 Speed Queen/Alliance has a commercial reversing dryer. It's supposed to keep the clothes more fluffed up and less wrinkled
