Hey Guys, I've got a D1000 I'm putting back together from bags and boxes. Why it was torn apart, I have no idea, I'm just thankful the critical pieces are still there. While waiting on some parts to arrive, I decided I'd tackle the wiring harness. Here's my issue...

There are 4 different thermostats, and no easy way to match them up to the schematic. There are a few small clues, such as someone's sharpie markings next to one, and a trace of a wire on another, but before I start making educated guesses, do we have any Westy experts that can ID them conclusively?

Perhaps you have a similar dryer and would be willing to pop a panel to capture wire colors?

Pic one is labeled 1-4, and the schematic A-D. Anyone willing to play?

I'll take a stab:

1) Q40611 Dry Dial thermostat - B
2) Q49425 Exhaust thermostat - D
3) Q49421 Cycling thermostat - A
4) Q49437 Motor Overrun thermostat - C

Ben, appreciate the confirmation.

There was a tiny bit of yellow insulation left on the 'dry dial t-stat', and the motor overrun t-stat is make-on-rise, so I was able to ID that by continuity. Someone substituted a 3-terminal t-stat for A, but its location seemed to match the simpler Westy dryers so it's wired up now. The only one I took a real guess at was D. Thanks for the help. -C
