Your cord has 4 prongs , assuming your outlet also has 4 to red, white to white, black to blue, and the "teal" gets hooked to the green ground ******** the rear of the unit

I have a 3 prong plug and 3 wires w/ connectors and they are not marked.which one attaches to the red, white, black terminal in the back of the dryer?

Looking at your dryer's wiring terminal block, you'll see three separated terminals. The red and black cord wires attach to the two outer terminals (it doesn't really matter which goes where), and the white one gets attached to the center one. You may even see smaller white wires coming from the back of the terminal and disappearing into the dryer. Make sure the terminals are securely tightened before you plug it in.

Wires for the maytag dryer are black, yellow, blue and white. We need to swap the cord for a 4 prong connection - are the yellow and black the hot wires - the white neutral and the blue the ground wire????...

The red and black wires of the cord go to the outside two terminals. The white on the cord goes in the middle. The green goes to the frame. Red and Black on the cord are L1 and L2, White is Nuetral, and green is ground

Changing 220 plugs need discription of positive and negitive to dryer

If you are installing a 3 prong cord , then the 2 outer wires , are the power lines , and the center is the neutral . On the dryer , the center wire connects to the white wire on the terminal block . The 2 outer cord wires . 1 connects to the black wire terminal on the block ( outside terminal ) , and the other outside wire , connects to the red ( outside terminal ) on the block . Its the same if you are installing a 4 wire cord , except the green , connects to the ground screw on the dryer itself .

How to hook up a cord to the maytag neptune dryer with no color c

The 2 larger outside wires are the Hot wires (Red and Black). Connect them to the Red and Black terminals on the dryer (They can be reversed, it does not matter as long as one is on the Black and the other is on the Red terminal) . The smaller middle wire is the Neutral wire (white) and will connect to the white terminal on the dryer.

Used maytag electric dryer installation question

First off, you should be wiring your power cord directly to the terminal block inside the dryer. If someone just cut off the cord that is terminated inside the dryer, and you are attempting to splice the new cord onto the old one.. you are making a mistake.. take the new cord and bond it directly to the terminal block inside the dryer. If you have a new 4-wire power cord, you are probably dealing with a red/black/white and green wire. ( assuming it is a four prong plug).. The black and red wires are the power lines themselves and should mate with the red and black wires inside the dryer. The green ( is frame ground) and is normally bonded to a stud near the terminal block or the dryer frame. The white is the neutral line and is normally tied to the terminal in the middle and between the red and black tie points.. In line splices should not be done on this appliance.. Hope this helps..
