I have a 3 prong wall mount outlet for my dyer and want to put in a 4 prong. how do I do it?


Veronica,
If you are talking about the outlet you plug your dryer into, that would require an certified electrician to make the change since that is covered by electrical codes. If you are talking about changing the pigtail on the dryer, you could do that yourself. Just remember to take the brass strip off that goes from the middle of power cord block to the ground. You have to separate the neutral from the ground in a four wire situation. Hope this helps!

I have a Frigidaire FAFS4473LW Steam Washer- 3 prong. I moved into a new place with a 4 prong. Do I need a 4 prong cord, or can I change the 4 prong adapter on the wall?


Hi nancy huerta...

You can change the cord or the receptical...
It will be easier to change the cord...
Purchase a four prong plug cord that will fit into your receptical, then wire your dryer for 4 wire instead of three wire use.
To see a picture and explanation of how to wire your dryer for a 4 wire plug go to the following webpage.

I have a dryer that has a 4 prong plug in i moved the place has a 3 prong plug in change the cord to a 3 or find adapter it is a frigidaire fde546res1


get a 3 prong cord,when you change it out do one wire at a time and you can't go wrong,you should see a white wire in the middle,a red wire on one side and a black on the other,the only difference is the 4 prong has a ground wire on it and the 3 doesn't and the way it plugs into the outlet.just follow the color of the wires

Purchase a 3 prong dryer cord. It is simpler and safer than changing the wall outlet.

When you put the cord on the dryer,the white wire goes to the center wire terminal. Black and red go to the 2 outside terminals right and left. The Green ground wire attaches to a ground screw outside the terminal cover.

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.
