Broken wire repair advice


Recommended Posts

  • Members

Hi. I'd be very grateful if anyone can offer me some advice please.

My washer (BEKO WM 74155LS) has a broken wire on the motor connection block on the washer side connector. I had the motor out a long while ago and I cut the tiewrap that secured the wires but I made the silly mistake of forgetting to resecure the wires. I believe this caused the breakage due to excessive vibration.

I've posted a picture of the connector. There's enough slack to trim back all the wires and make good but it's not obvious to me how I release the wires. If it's possible with this type of connector could you tell me how to do this please? If not, could I replace the connector? If so could I use a simple terminal block? If not, what is the connector called im looking for?Or should I get a new harness and replace that section? 

I could easily bin it and get a new one and save myself the hassle but that would be too easy.

All advice welcomed and appreciated.

Sorry for late response. You normally have to insert something very thin down the connector to release a little arrowhead type of lug that holds the connectors in place.
