Need more information to give exact answer.
If it is 120 volt, then white is neutral and black is the hot wire.
The ground wire is connected to the metal frame, should be a green screw or a connection lug just for this ground wire.
Post a picture of the wires you are trying to connect and a picture of the connection terminal on the ac unit and I can give you an exact answer.
I think your issue is the earth ground no neutral. You should run that to a neutral wire. All my 220V ACs can do a neutral (white) and 2 power (black) wires, but they aren't connected to a ground wire...
Green is ground, secure to frame. White goes to compressor, located behind LED/LCD, lower right corner you'll see a number of other colored wires kind of in a circle, each connected to a 'port'. The black goes behind LED/LCD panel also. Top far right, back corner. 2 ports are connected to a black box..a red one and should b your black one. GOOD LUCK!
On a 120 volt plug, the smaller plug is black, power. The larger side is white, neutral. The center round plug is green, ground. Make sure your ac is not 220, the plugs are in line above the neutral. On 220 both are power.
I have been trying to get in touch with a service rep to find out but unable to get one. They wanted proof that I had purchased a unit. Its possible that your receptacle is not polarized right. By that I mean the two wires may need switched on the receptacle or maybe it doesn't have a good ground. You may want to try temporarily using an extension cord and try another plug. Most things will run good on receptacles wired wrong but with a computerized AC it may be seeing a fault. If you still need help I think the best way to find out would be for you too contact the store that you bought the unit from and make it their responsibility to find out what the EE stands for. If they cant, get the unit replaced and try again. If you do get hold of a service tech # from Maytag, please send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope this helps.
