Interpreting Wiring Diagram

My deshumidifier was missing only one part : the electrical cord.
I ordered one and I got it.  Now, I need help to install it inside my deshumidifier.
The internal wiring of that cord consists of 3 wires:
1) Yellow/Green
2) White
3) Black

I attached a picture of the wiring diagram displayed inside the unit itself, and also a picture of what I've done.
1) I screwed the yellow/green cable to the metal casing (guessing it was the ground)
2) I plugged the white cable on an empty pin near a blue cable (my interpretation of WH(BL))
3) I plugged the black cable on an empty pin near a brown cable (my interpretation of BK(BR))

Well, having absolutely no knowledge in electricity, I will not plug my unit to the wall and turn it on until I have the advices of some of you guys.  What do you think? What does "WH(BL) (N)" and "BK(BR) (L)" means?

As always, thanks for your support and knowledge.
