Question about Washing Machines
I bought a used kenmore stackable washer and dryer P/N 145781-000A. I wired an outlet for it in my condo. Since the plug has four prongs I installed a four prong outlet, but there are only three wires coming from the box: two 120v. hot wires and one twisted silver ground. So I wired the two hot wires to the black and red spots on the outlet and the green and white spots to the ground wire. I tested the outlet and there are 250v available to the plug but when I plug it in and turn on the appliance nothing happens. What can I do?
Was the machine working when you bought it? if there's 240 available, then a problem is in the machine NOT your wiring. both motors, the dryer and wash motor may be 240 volts OR 120 volts - a hot leg to ground. the feeder should be a four wire because the white is the neutral and the ground an equipment ground. at the panelbox both the equip gnd and white terminate at the neutral bus.
