Question about Maytag MDE9700AYW Neptune 174 Electric Dryer
I JUST BOUGHT THE MDE7400AYQ DRYER AND IT HAS A 3 WIRE PLUG AND ON MY WALL I HAVE A 4 WIRE PLUG. WHAT CAN I DO, I ALSO HAVE A 4 WIRE CORD Dryer has 3 wire cord but house socet is 4 wires.
If the dryer has a 4 wire cord and you need a 3 wire cord, you should have a jumper, or little metal strip, that came with the dryer. You will connect this jumper between the green ground screw that attaches to the frame and the screw where you white neutral wire lands on the terminal block.
If the dryer is 4 wire and you need it four wire, you simply connect the white to the neutral screw, the black to one of your hot screws, the red to your other hot screw and you green to the green screw connected to your frame. If there is a piece of metal, "jumper" connected from the neutral or white screw and the green screw in the frame you will need to remove this.
Write back if you need clarification.
MAKE SURE THE CIRCUIT IS OFF AND THE CORD UNPLUGGED FROM THE OUTLET BEFORE STARTING. TEST FOR VOLTAGE BEFORE DOING ANYTHING.
