SOURCE: I need to change the dyer cord from a 4prong cord

If you have a digital camera, you could take a picture of the plug (several different angles) and your outlet then go to one of the large chain hardware stores, camera in hand, and ask for an adaptor between the dryer's plug and your outlet. It may not be necessary to rewire the dryer at all. If they don't have one, keep reading.

The change probably is possible since dryers generally use a 2-phase connection at the most but I wouldn't recommend that you DIY. You are dealing with a line voltage whcih could be 220 and a circuit capable of supply fairly high (20) amperage.
This combination could make toast out of you if improperly wired. Any competent electrician can determine how to do the conversion with a few measurements.
There is an exception; some mfr.s have pasted a large label either inside or out on the larger panel that contains the electrical diagram of the machine.
With some care, most laymen could determine how to make the change.

SOURCE: 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
Vic

Can you please tell me what kind of. Power cord does my whrilpool. Duet dyer use?


Roseann,
You are going to need either a 3 wire or a 4 wire dryer power cord that you can get at most any home improvement store. You need to look and see what type of outlet you have in your wall to see if it is a 3 or 4 prong outlet and then match your power cord to that. Hope this helps!

The timer is probably bad. If the dryer works on sensor dry use that. A timer is so expensive it is not cost effective to buy a nee one. You may as well buy a new dryer.

Install power cord dryer


Before you change wiring check and see if its a proper cord for a 220 hook up. most three prong are for a 110 hook up. Ask an electrician for advice so you don't have a fire or kill yourself. Most Dryers are 220

Need to change power cord on maytag dryer from 3 prong to 4


Always disconnect electricity before beginning this process.

All the 4 wire cords I have seen are color-coded. The white wire goes to the middle terminal, the green wire goes to any screw you can reach that goes into the metal case of the dyer. The red and black go to the outside terminals of the block and while it doesn't matter which color goes to which terminal I usually follow the color code of the interior dryer wiring that already exists. Good Luck.

I need to change the power cord to my dryer to fit the outlet in my new residence. Is there any specific order to how the tabs hook to the dryer on the back? They aren't color coded.


Always disconnect electricity before beginning this process.

If you are using a 3 wire cord the wires go exactly as you see them. The middle wire goes onto the middle terminal and the outside wires go to the outside terminals which one goes on which side doesn't matter.

Attaching Power Cable


The two outside wires of the flat power cable are the power wires. The middle wire is neutral or ground.

Hook one of the red outside wires to the red, the other to the black, and the center one to white.

HAD TO CHANGE FROM 4 PRONG TO 3 PRONG AND NOW DRYER RUNS FOR A


When you connected the new cord, did you make certain to connect the line 1/2 wires to the Line1/2 input's, and the Neutral to Neutral inside the wiring compartment?

Not heating up almost sounds like the heating elements are not getting their full 220 VAC, but then if you had something wired wrong in back, a breaker should trip. Make sure you've connected the new power cord correctly at the input power point. I am guessing this problem occurred between the time that you had it at the old house, and the new house, with the power cord changeover.
