Hello perfectange,
You should have a power cord that matches the 3 or 4 prong wall receptacle and it's pretty straight forward on how to connect. First off..position the dryer in a place that yuou can gain access to the back of the dryer.. Next, locate the passthru opening for where the new cord goes thru the dryer.. You should have or get the appropriate cable clamp feedthru for passing that cord thru and into the dryer. The clamp prevents you from pulling the wires free from their terminations inside the dryer so don't omit this part of it..
Next, remove the access cover over the terminal block that is inside the dryer and where the power cord is attached. You should see at least 3 terminals and maybe 4.. You should see a Red, White, Black and/or Green double row terminal strip. Attach the red tagged end of your power cord to the red terminal block screw, white to white, black to black.. If you don't have a green one.. that is earth ground and you can secure that to the nearest frame member screw that is unpainted.. If you do have a green terminal for groud, attach it to that one. Make sure all the screws are fairly tight. Make sure the cable clamp is tight and holding the cord from being moved. Then plug it into the mating wall receptacle. I would encourage you to cycle the dryer for a few minutes without clothing in it or the vent attached to verify it heats up and everything works properly. Then reposition it back into its final location, level accordingly and attach the vent duct ..
Hope this helps..
Regards,
Rick

The problem is the terminal block, Vibration with the cord not being fastened to the block tight enough caused overheating at the block and it failed. Replace it.

Maytag dryer quit drying, no heat Model NO. LDE7334ACE


If the rest of the dryer is operating, make sure the exhaust is not blocked any where from the lint screen to the outlet damper outside. If it's clear then you will need a meter to diagnose further.

Maytag dryer squeaks during cycle


How do you replace the glides/slides? I have a Maytag dryer that's squeaking, took off front and it's clear it's the glides. Found where to buy them just need directions for replacing. Anyone know how?

To change the glides you have someone lift the drum--after taking off the front panel--and pull out the glides. We bought the glides locally and just ordered on line the felt pads that go under the glides, as one was missing. So I haven't actually completed the project but should easily be able to once the felt pads arrive.

if replacing the rollers didn't fix the squeak, you need to replace the teflon drum slides and drum gasket material. mine sqalled so much it would run you out of the room. now it's quiet.

I'm not familiar with this specific Dryer, but in most of them you can find their wiring diagram glued under the upper panel or the rear panel. Good luck !
