You don't. You can either have an electrician install a 220V socket for it or get a special cord/switchbreaker to share it with your dryer socket.

Washer won't turn on unless dryer is on


I assume you have a gas dryer, as a washing machine runs on 110 Amps while an electric dryer uses a higher 220 Amps. If both the washer and the dryer cords are plugged into the same socket, and the washer only runs while the dryer is on, the socket is not wired properly. You may check this easily enough by switching the washer cord to the one presently utilized by the dryer. If the washer runs, then look at the wiring.

There was a pop sound when the machine was switched on and now no power or lights. Plug fuze changed and outlet ok. Any clues as to the problem?


check supply voltage either 220 or 110 at Main PCB ( Printed circuit board) , when you press the power switch on !

if no power reaches check connectivity of your power cord through multimeter ! ,

hopefully you will get a break through !
if problems exists contact me ,

Kenmore 400 washer, model 110-29422 801: How do I get at the attachments for the electrical power cord - my puppy chewed it in half, and I must replace it. Do I remove the top, or the back, and how,...


Use a putty knife at the base of the control console about 2 inches in from the right and left sides.
Lay the putty knife flat on the top of the washer and push it in under the front corner of the control console to depress the clips on the right and left side.
Then fold the control console panel towards the rear of the washer.
Then you can see the cord and how it attaches.
The cord part number is 285800 and cost about $30.00.

How do I change from a 4 prong wire to a 3 prong wire on a kenmore h34t washer


3-Prong or 4-Prong – The Difference:

3-prong color code:

BLACK (HOT – 110-120VAC) – May also be referred to as L1
RED (HOT – 110-120VAC) – May also be referred to as L2
WHITE (NEUTRAL – 0VAC) – Usually grounded to the equipment frame via a jumper wire or metal strap.

4-prong color code:

BLACK (HOT – 110-120VAC) – May also be referred to as L1
RED (HOT – 110-120VAC) – May also be referred to as L2
WHITE (NEUTRAL – 0VAC) – DO NOT ground to equipment frame.
GREEN (GROUND) – Attach to equipment frame.

Which One to Use: According to the National Electrical Code (NEC), Article 250, installations after the year 2000, require the use of a 4-prong plug which incorporates a separate ground and neutral wire. If you currently have a home that uses the 3-prong receptacle and cord, you can continue to use it. You will have to upgrade to a 4-prong configuration, however, if you plan on relocating your current receptacle, or if the internal wires of the receptacle become damaged in any way and require repair.

Converting from 3-prong to 4-prong: Make sure you UNPLUG the appliance prior to any repairs. CAUTION: Voltages dangerous to life are still present even with the appliance turned off and still plugged in. Notably in the area of the terminal block where the power cords are installed. You will need to remove the old cord by following these steps:

1. With the appliance UNPLUGGED, remove the access panel on the back of the unit where the power cord enters.
2. With the cover removed, you will see a terminal block where the power cord is attached. The terminal wires will be colored with the WHITE wire in the middle, and the BLACK and RED wires on either end. NOTE: There should be a green jumper wire or metal bonding strap attached to the NEUTRAL (white) terminal wire.
3. Remove the terminal lugs holding the old power cord wires in place. CAUTION: Use care not to drop any nuts or screws inside the appliance.
4. Remove the bonding strap or ground wire from the Neutral terminal lug. NOTE: If disconnecting a ground wire, make sure you re-attach it to the appliance frame.
5. Loosen the screws on the strain relief connector that holds the power cord in place and remove old power cord. NOTE: If your appliance does not have a strain relief that clamps down and hold the power cord in place, it is highly recommended that you install one. This prevents chaffing of the power cord against the appliance casing, and prevents the terminal wires from being pulled and broken loose. This could pose a potential shock hazard or cause damage to the appliance.
6. Install new power cord by threading it through the strain relief connector and tighten down the screws.
7. Connect the new power cord to the corresponding colors at the terminal block (Black goes to Black, Red goes to Red, White goes to White). The difference is going to be a Green (ground) wire that will connect to the appliance frame. There’s usually a green grounding screw for this. NOTE: If you disconnected a green grounding strap in Step 4., you can connect these two wires at the same point.
8. Re-install access cover. Turn off the service breaker to the appliance PRIOR to plugging it back in. With the breaker in the off position, plug the appliance in, and THEN turn the breaker on. In the event, something was wired incorrectly, it is far better to have your hands away from the receptacle and controlled from a distance. Safety first.

These steps will work for nearly all appliances that require a 220-240VAC power cord conversion. The power cords are usually rated at 250VAC, 30 amps, and are carried by any hardware store or appliance parts retailer.

ADDITIONAL NOTES:

1. If you desire to convert an appliance from a 4-prong to a 3-prong, make sure you reconnect the bonding strap and/or ground wire to the Neutral (white) wire at the terminal block.
2. On some newer appliances, it is REQUIRED that you use a 4-prong plug in order for the timer or clock circuits to function properly due to the way they are configured. Refer to your owner’s manual for the correct recommendation. Even if you currently have a 3-prong receptacle, you still may be required to upgrade to a 4-prong if you encounter this situation.
3. In many circumstances, new appliances are NOT sold with the power cord due to the various power configurations in homes. Always refer to the contents description on the shipping container the appliance comes with to see what additional items or tools may be required for installation.

Slim-Twin washer does not start


I've been researching this model a little bit, I think there are 2 fuses inside, but I dont know where. If I have to take mine apart, I'll let you know.. Did the machine ever run, or did you just get it. Is there 2 cords to your machine a 220 cord and a 110 cord, or does the washer just run off the 220, but your washer doesn't work, so you dont really know, but if it has two cords, could you let me know, so I can find the end of mine ha..thanks chuck

Maytag A482 Washer


either a water valve is stuck or most likely the pressure switch is bad check to make sure the hose is on the tub and back of the pressure switch and its clear if that's good replace the pressure switch its where you select the water fill on the drier first thing to check is the power dryers will run on 110 but not heat without 220 get a volt meter and check it where the cord attaches if that's good check the heating element
