Drain pump wiring loose

I noticed the error code on my washer as LD. So I immediately knew where to look and notice the electrical blue wire got loose and smelled burned. how do I reconnect this wire or is it unfixable.

enzweilerswho by looking at your image it appears as if the wire came out of the connector. You could try to either replace the connector (P4 in the image) or find a way to otherwise attach the wires to the pumps. Take an image of where they plug in at the pump end, sometimes a simple spade connector can be used.

Of course, it is possible that it has failed due to the wire getting hot. Check your pump to make sure that it does not have a short and draws to many amps.

1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.

2. Disconnect the wire connector from the drain pump terminals.

3. Set the ohmmeter to the R x 1 scale.

4. Touch the ohmmeter test leads to each of the drain pump terminals. The meter

should indicate between 10.5 and 14 Ω.

I just bought two automotive spade connectors, made pigtails of each. Then connect the spades to the terminals and connect the pigtails to the old blue wires with wire nuts or crimp connectors. Works great, and you dont have to buy a new wire harness.
