Replacing electrical cord


if you buy a color coded cord and plug then red and black go on thee 2 outer terminals of the power terminal and the white wire goes between these as this is the neutral connection and if it has a green ground wire connect this anywhere to the metal case of the unit, if its a gray cord with no colors then the 2 outer wire on the cord go to the outer terminals on the units power terminal block and the center wire on this cord goes to the center terminal on the unit

Match the corresponding colors at the terminal block, making sure the Neutral (White) and Ground (Green or Bare Copper) wires are NOT terminated together.

I need to change out my 3 prong dryer power cord with a 4 prong dryer cord, but unable to figure out where the wires go on the new 4 prong power cord, because the one on there is grey and not color coded...




Changing from 3 to 4 wire hookup on a electric dryer:
Power cord help for 3 & 4 prong dryer cords
This is an example of a three wire connection dryer cord hookup. Notice that there is a ground strap connected from the common center terminal to the frame of the terminal block. Place the center wire of the cord on the center terminal [ one with the ground ******** it ] and the other two wires will be placed on the outer terminals and it doesn't matter which wire goes right or left. Get the center wire of the cord right and you are in business.
This is an example of the 4 wire dryer cord hookup. Notice that the ground strap has been removed from the terminal block frame and folded back onto the center terminal for storage. You can see the colors of the other hookups. TIP: White always to the middle.

Below are a few websites.

Electrical wiring


The green is the safety ground, it goes to a contact that is directly connected to the body of the dryer. A dryer cord is usually a flat thing with the wires that have lugs crimped on them. Usually the power wires are black, and the neutral wire is white. It's usually difficult to put it on wrong, so if it goes easy, it's probably right.

there should be instructions on the cord that you purchased. if not here it is, on your dryer, the 3 prongs are L1-N-L2.. and the green is a ground L1 line 1, L2 line 2, and N nuetral. L1 and L2 dont make a diff. as long as the whie(nuetral) is in middle terminal and the green screws to hte ground screw

GE Profile power cord


White is the neutral circuit and it goes to the center connection of the terminal block on the dryer. Red and Black are "hot" wires and they go to the connectors on the ends of the block, doesn't matter which color is on which side. Green is the ground and it goes to the cabinet ground.
Post back if you have any questions.
