What colors on electrical cord go with what screw on dryer?


The green is ground and usually connects to the metal side of the dryer.
The white is neutral and connects to the white center post. The black and red on the cord are both 110vt hot lines and connect to the posts on each end. So black to black and red to black/brown should be ok.

How to connect yournew dryer cord


It seems to get confusing where the wires go in the back where the cord connects to on your brand new,or previously dryer that you have brought to a home thats new to you

4 wires goes as such with oldtech2332.jpgthe red wire going on the right side,the black wire going on the left,the white wire goes on the center terminal. Now what exactly do you do with the green wires is what your asking yourself. It goes onto the cabinet after removing that little link that went from the center terminal that was beweeen the cabinet and and the white wire terminal.Yes remove that link and install the green wire where that link was just attached to a minute ago.

3 WIRE CORD

oldtech2332_0.jpg
The 3 wire cord goes just like this see the 2 wires on the outsides of the cord going to the black/red wires .The wire in the middle of the cord goes on the middle terminal on the cord block

Where can I find a service manual? I need to change the 3 wire power cord to a 4 wire cord.


first install the RED & BLACK conductors on the cord to the L1 & L2 terminals or the 2 outer terminals on the 3 position terminal strip on the dryer,next take the WHITE ( NEUTRAL) wire on the cord connect it to the "N" terminal on the dryer terminal strip usually located between the 2 phase wires RED & BLACK so the terminal strip will be(RED-WHITE-BLACK) red & black can go on either outer terminal as they are not polarity sensitive due to the A.C. current, then the GREEN on the power cord goes to any metallic portion on the dryer case

I am installing a 30 amp cord on my Whirlpool dryer. The model number is WED5100VQ. I am having a problem finding the ground wire in which to ground the dryer because it only has a white wire coming from...


On whirlpool (all manufacture) dryers the ground wire is linked to the center terminal with the white wire and attaches to the cabinet grounding all metal on dryer since on panel attaches to the next making the entire cabinet have continuty through the neutral/ground wire.
When connecting 3 wire cord connect the two outside wires to red/black on cord block and center wire to white/center terminal connection on block.
For a 4 wire cord red to red black to black white to white and the green to rear of cabinet/any panel near block

Changing 220 plugs need discription of positive and negitive to dryer


If you are installing a 3 prong cord , then the 2 outer wires , are the power lines , and the center is the neutral . On the dryer , the center wire connects to the white wire on the terminal block . The 2 outer cord wires . 1 connects to the black wire terminal on the block ( outside terminal ) , and the other outside wire , connects to the red ( outside terminal ) on the block . Its the same if you are installing a 4 wire cord , except the green , connects to the ground screw on the dryer itself .

Trying to install 3 way cord with a 4 way replacement cord. I have disconnected all wires and put them back. My question is concerning the white wire.The wires that are already connected to the dryer red,...


In a three wire system you have 2 hot wires (black and red) and a neutral (white). the ground is connected to the neutral at the dryer. In a 4 wire system you have the 2 hot wires, neutral, and a ground. (green). The ground is connected with the neutral at the circuit panel. The hot wires at the dryer should be on the outside scres, the neutral should be in the center and the ground should be under the green screw. *****. .

  • green = ground (attach directly to the case, should be a green painted screw near the opening
  • red = hot 110v connect to the red on the dryer
  • black = hot 110v connect to the black on the dryer
  • white = neutral connects to the blue (only if the blue is in the middle)
  • neutral is always in the middle with a hot wire on either side of it.
  • also make sure all the connections are tight
let me know if you need more help Mike
