Four prong cord three prong outlet


Ok this is how you will wire the three prong to the dryer.

You have 2 wires that are gold/brass in color, those are the hot wires.
You have 1 wire that is crome/silver in color, that is the neutral

On back of fryer where you wire it you put the wires on like this right to left Gold/brass hot, silver/nuetral, then the other hot wire.

On back of dryer you will have screws from right to left this color gold/brass, silver/crome, then gold/brass again.

If you do have a 4 wire cord the extra wire is ground and you screw that to the machine body.

The dryer has a four prong male plug and the outlet is a three prong female - which do I change? the dryer cord is the easiest, but how do I connect the leads?


4 PRONG PLUG WIRING: 2 HOTS(RED&BLACK) 1 NEUTRAL(WHITE) 1 GROUND(GREEN). 3 PRONG PLUG WIRING: 2 HOTS&1 NEUTRAL. YOU MUST USE 2 HOTS & 1 NEUTRAL ON A 3 WIRE PLUG. THE GROUND WIRE(GREEN) WHICH IS HOOKED TO FRAME OF THE DRYER IS NOT USED ON OLDER 3 WIRE PLUGS. IT IS AN ADDITIONAL SAFTEY GROUND ON NEWER MODEL 4 WIRE PLUGS.

How do I hook the electric cord to the dryer?


Most electric dryers are 220 with a neutral. Inside the machine, they use one leg and neutral to power the timer and the light both of which are normally 120 V

Do you have a volt meter? And do you have a plug in the wall into which you want to plug the dryer?

If you have a volt meter measure between any two of the three slots in (or on) the wall outlet. You will get 120 VAC or 220 VAC. Measure the remaining slot you didnt measure and any other slot. You will get the same results. at the common point where you got 120 (120 from both sides, that is neutral. Inside the dryer should be an indicator of where the hot legs gl as well as the neutral. You can check which wire supplies which blade with a simple contuinity test to be sure if there are no marks on the wire.

I hope this helps

Hello, I have a Kenmore 80 Series. Washer and Dryer. Bought it from someone on Craigslist. How do I hook them up? Is there a manual any where out there?


Connect your hot and cold water pipes to the washer. Place the drain pipe into a sink or direct drain feed to your sewer system. Plug it into outlet. Dryer - plug it into your 220 line outlet. If the plug is not the same as your outlet you can find instructions on lline with pics on how to change a 3 prong plug to a 4 prong plug and so on...:)

From three prong to four prong


Hello There,

your hooking up 2 Hots 1 Neutral and 1 Ground

240v

you need to consult a electrician for reason that 240 is a very high voltage and will kill you.

your outlet has to match your plug and how its wired into the Panel

Double Pole Breaker 50amp no less

2 hots go to breaker from outlet red / black
1 neutral goes to neutral bus bar in panel from outlet
1 ground goes to ground bus bar in panel from outlet

that equals your four wires

Dryer is turning but no heat is coming out


If you had a 3 prong originaly you probably have only 3 wires to work with, either a red and black and white or a black and a black with a red stripe and a bare stranded wire. The black and red are ALWAYS the 2 hot wires 230 volt. The white or bare are the neutral / common wires. If you only have 3 you will need to get your equipment ground from a cold water line to the 4th prong.
Another option leave the 3 prong in the wall and install the old 3 prong pig tail on the new dryer then ground the frame of the dryer to the nearest cold water line. The water line must be metalic for this to work.

I have whirlpool electric cloth dryer Model # LEC7848DZ1. Serial # MF0902194 I doesn't start at all. no heat no spinning. Please help. electic durrent is up to outlet, so electicity is not a proble....


Its possible that the thermal fuse is bad and needs replacing. Could have been caused by partial plugged hose to include where it hooks up. When it senses that its too hot it will blow that fuse. Hope this helped.

Trying to wire a 3 wire dryer from panel box to dryer plug


Sounds like you have a 10-2 NM wire. One black, one white, one bare copper. At panel box, black to one hot terminal of breaker or fuse holder (L1). White to other breaker terminal or other fuse holder (L2). Bare copper to the grounded neutral buss bar.
At the dryer the bare neutral goes to the center terminal, the other two go one each on either side, it won't matter which way. Hot Neutral Hot. The neutral terminal of the dryer should have a wire or metal strap connecting it to the dryer frame if you are not using a four wire supply.
