    Maytag dryer heating element wiring schematic
    I have a Maytag dryer model#SDE5401AYW and it quit heating. We purchased a new heating element and went to hook it up but we have two gray wires that come from the wire harness at the motor that we have no clue where they go. My father-in-law took out the old heating element and didn't mark the wires and the new element came with some wiring directions but there is no mention of the gray wires. Does anyone know where they go? There are no more terminals to connect to and the new element came with a black jumper and an orange jumper we never had before but they are explained in the new directions. Thank You.
