Depending on what type of circuit protection you have on the dryer[ circuit breaker or the older screw in fuse ] is probably what you heard blowing . If the noise you heard came from the dryer , then it's time to check the connections in the dryer[after unplugging the power source to it] to see what has happened ,if you feel you are experienced enough to handle this type of operation. If you have any doubts about you ability to do this ,then don't!! Call an electrician and/or appliance repairman to do the inspection

Are all dryer power cords the same except for being either 3 or 4 prong?


They are universal. Just hook the new up the same way the old one was, assuming it was wired correctly.

Replacing the power cord on a Frigdaire model FDE546RES1


if your new power cord had three prongs then you will hook up the white wire to the machine's white wire, red to red and black to black. if you have 4 prongs you will have extra green wire this will hook up to a ground screw
hope this helps

I moved to a house with a three prong outlet for my Frigidare electric dryer, model number FER341AC0, that has a four prong cord. I bought a new three prong cord but there is no color coding on the dryer...


The three wire goes on the electrical block on the back of your dryer just like the cord is made. If you look at the cord, it's made flat (Most 3 wire cord are made flat, Some are not) The wire in the middle goes in the middle of the block. The two wires to the outside go to the outside of the block. It makes do difference which wire goes on which side as long as the outside wires go to the outside.

CHANGING DRYER CORD


Hi,
All you need to do is, attach the middle connection from the cord to the middle post on the dryer. The 2 outside connections on the cord will attach to the outside posts on the dryer. It does not matter on the outside connectors as far as which side they go.
Make sure they are fastened down tight. If the connections are loose at all, they will go bad.
Please let me know if this has helped you at all or if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Frigidaire GLEQ2152ES Dryer Won't Power UP


IF you find that you have only a 3 wire feed for this dryer (and the reason for the 3 prong receptacle)...then you can not properly install a 4 prong dryer cord to it. You now have 2 choices....either rewire (assuming that it is a 3 wire supply) the entire run from the dryer breaker to the outlet location with 4 wire (typically a run of 8/3 with ground having a black, red, white and bare ground)and install a 4 prong dryer receptacle to match the configuration of the new dryers cord.....OR - you can remove the 4 wire cord and replace it with a 3 wire cord....re-using the ground strap - IF it is still in place.

Wire 3 prong cord


Electric Dryer How To Hook Up Cord pixel_trans.gifFor Three Prong Cords
the Center cord wire goes on the center terminal,
the left on the left ,
and the right on the right.

Note: There should be a ground strap or wire that runs from the center terminal to the dryer case.

For Four Prong Cords
the White cord wire goes in the center,
the Red on the Right,
the Black on the Left.
The green cord wire goes to the case or the external ground screw.

Note: Be sure to disconnect the ground wire or strap that runs from the center terminal to the case. In this Photo (A Whirlpool Dryer) I have ran the wire that runs from the center terminal, the Light Green wire, back to itself rather than cutting it off, just incase I need to put a 3 prong cord back on it some day. The whole purpose of this 3 prong / 4 prong thing is it separates the neutral from the ground. pixel_trans.gif pixel_trans.gif3 Prong Cord Whirlpool Dryer Example terminalblock.jpg 4 Prong Cord Whirlpool Dryer Example 4prongcord_small.jpg
