Hi guys! I have come across something odd. Whirlpool makes a motor 661600. Some of them have a purple wire that comes from the windings to the motor switch. Others do not have this wire. I have found that machines with permanent press are affected (Perm Press does not function). If you put in the wrong 661600 (the one without the purple wire) Perm press will not function. Is this a result of a different series of machines? I can not see any differentiation between series and part numbers. Thanks for your help.
