Wiring an EMI Filter

Hello,

I have a Maytag Neptune washer (MAH8700AWW) and I need to reconnect the EMI filter. I could not find info in the service manual or online. Here is a picture of the filter and the wires. There are four terminals numbered 1, 2, 3, and 4. The black and white connector obviously goes on 1 and 2, but I'm not sure which gets black and which gets white. The 3 and 4 terminals get a red-blue connector and a white connector, but again I'm not sure which goes where.

Do any of you guys know this info, or where else I could look?

Thanks,
Joe

I can help you. I can look it up but there should be no need for that. Aren't those connectors specialized ones.....meaning they'll only fit on in one way ?

I can't put my finger on the wiring diagram. Looks a closely guarded secret

Can you give me a close up pic of the filter ?

Here's the wiring diagram, but I don't know how to read it.

It looks like it refers to terminals marked 4 and 5. But there is no #5 terminal.

BTW - this is the original filter that came in the washer.

Should be:
Pin 1 - white
Pin 2 - black
Pin 3- white
pin 4 - red/blue


The 4 and 5 are probably for troubleshooting. Like "check points 4 and 5 for 120 volts"
