This is where the difference between 'ground' and 'neutral' comes in. 'Ground' runs only to ground, while 'neutral' may be tied to ground but it must be tied to the power company's neutral line. Using one for the other is a common cause of 'stray voltage'.

If you look on the back of the machine where the other wires come out you should find a green screw attached to the cabinet. Running a jumper wire from this screw to a proper ground will make the machine safe to touch under conditions such as failure of insulation in the machine, leaking water, you without your rubber boots, especially all of them together.

The box you're plugging into should be properly grounded. If it is, then just hook your jumper to it- you will likely fine another green screw for grounding inside that box.

Need to install a 4-wire/ prong dryer cord strain relief assbly


The green wire attaches to the dryer cabinet. There should be a green screw in the cabinet for attaching the wire. If not, you can always drill a hole for a ground screw.

The loose green wire you see is the reason the code was changed to a 4-wire cord.

Change fr 3 prongs to 4


They wire in the same except the green wire will go to a ground screw which should be right in the same area with a green color to it. If no ground screw, hook the green together with the white (center) wire. Hope this helps!
