You should first check the voltage in the outlet itself. make sure you have 240 volts across the 2 terminals on the sides. you should also get 120 volts between the middle terminal to each of the end terminals. yo can also check this from the back of the dryer. 240 volts between the black and red wires. 120 from the black to white and red to white. if you find that is not the case you need to call a electrician to check the wiring fron the fuse box to the outlet. if it checks out good something happened to the control and you willneed to replace that.

How to connect a plug electric dryer to a 4 plug outlet


for short, just dont mind the color.. the black wire from the new plug goes to right in/on the appliance terminal block, the white from the new plug goes to both white in the middle of the same terminal block and the red wire from the new plug goes to left terminal block of the appliance therminal block and of coarse the green from the new plug goes to the appliance frame.. no need nor sense in trying to figure the wire color of the appliance as it does not mean anything really and it does not follow any rules nor standards..

Trying to replace a 3prong plug with a 4prong plug


Ok, so you currently have a three prong cord on your dryer? Your house has a 4 prong receptacle? Ok so now you've purchased a 4 prong dryer pigtail? Be sure cord is unplugged. Remove cover of junction in back of dryer. You will see three terminals. They should be labeled something like L1,L2,N . ON one terminal you well see a small ground strip This is currently connecting the neutral terminal to ground. On the new cord connect the outside two conductors to L1 +L2 connect the white conductor to the N terminal. Connect the green (ground) conductor to the frame where the copper bonding was. This seperates the neutral conductor from the equipement grounding conductor.

Just brougth used maytag neptune dryer.model MDE3000AYW


If you are connecting a power cord with a 3-wire configuration, you match the corresponding wire colors from the power cord to the wires on the terminal block in the back of the dryer. The correct color-code is as follows:

RED - HOT (120VAC)
BLACK - HOT (120VAC)
WHITE - NEUTRAL (0VAC)*

*There should be a ground strap or ground wire connected to neutral at the terminal block in a 3-wire configuration.

NOTE: If the wires are not color-coded, the outer two wires (Left and Right) are the HOT leads. The center conductor is Neutral.

If you have any questions, you can refer to this link for further explanation:

This explains the difference in 4-wire and 3-wire configurations. I hope this helps you.

WHEN I MOVED MY NEPTUNE DRYER TO OUR MANUFACTURED HOME I HAD TO CHANGE THE PLUG FROM A THREE PRONG TO A FOUR PRONG AND CODE 88 IS ON, I WONDER IF I HAVE TO HOOK THE GROUND UP DIFFERENT?


There is a jumper in between the neutral and ground terminals. In order hook up the 4 prong plug correctly you need to remove that jumper to separate the ground and neutral terminals.

What wires go to which colors while hooking up the dryer plug


Normally a 220V-AC dryer plug will have three (3) wires. Two (2) of these are 120 V-AC each while the third one is the ground wire. The dryer cord (plug set) will have three (3) prongs and three (3) wires with either ring or fork terminals on the other end. The ouside wires are the voltage supply, while the center (middle one) is the ground wire. Your manual should also show this in the installation section for your unit.

Connect them using the installation guide for your dryer, which should show the two outside connections for the power, while the center connection should show as the ground, but BE CAREFUL and check to be sure before plugging in the plug/cord set into the wall 220 V-AC receptacle!!

Typically, newer appliances have a green colored nut/screw indicating the ground connection/conductor.
