Super simple wiring question (almost)

I took apart a broken carpet/floor dryer i use at work to clean and didnt pay attention to the wiring of the 3 speed swtich/power cord to the motor and need some help. I imagine this is super simple but i havent got a clue.
So heres what im lookin at.... Its not letting me upload any pictures right now so please bare with this explanation...
There are 5 wires coming out of the motor. Red, white, blue, black, yellow, and white. They all have female wire connectors attached.

The power cord has 3 wires coming out. Black, with a female connector, a green one and a yellow one both with male connectors.

The 3 speed switch has 4 male connectors marked, 0 which is on a side by itself. then on the other side its marked 2,4,3,1 but 4 does not have a connector

I wish it would just let me upload the picture

The wiring diagram (as best explained as I know how)

WHT--(has line going strait across leading into nothing but ending with a small dot
BLK(H)--Has line leading into (box) then diagonally down, then straight out of the back of the (box)
BLU(M)---Has line leading into the box then ending with small dot
RED(L)---Same as BLU just beneath it

I apologize for this cluster of craziness but its the best i got without the use of pictures, If anyone can help id really appreciate it. If theres anything more detailed or specific i can answer please let me know

Have you tried this method of loading pictures?

Unless your pictures are the size of the Ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, it should allow you to post them.
