I am replacing my GE Washing Machine "clutch-type" motor with the recommended newer "clutch-less" motor configuration. The newer clutch-less motor requires a different wiring harness with a capacitor and a relay. Do you have a wiring diagram/schematic showing how I connect the Washing Machine, Motor, Capacitor, and Relay together.

The Washer Model Number, Motor Numbers, and Part Numbers are as follows:

GE Washer Model: WCSE4160B1WW

Original Clutch-type Motor: 5KH61KW2516HS eg WH20X10009
- this motor had a rectangular connector block and hooked to the Washing Machine with 6 wires without Capacitor or Relay

Replacement Clutch-less Motor Assembly: WH49X10035
* Motor: 5KCP160FFA001AS eg WH20X10019
* Wiring Harness: WH49X10030
* Capacitor: WH12X10212
* Relay: WH12X10213
- this motor has a 9 slot square connector block and uses 7 wires to connect to the Washing Machine, Capacitor and Relay.
