Question about Roper REX4634KQ Electric Dryer
Changing my power cord from 3 to 4 prong cord. Had no trouble removing and reattaching the wires. However, from the inner wiring of the dryer has a white wire that is attached to the frame. This attaches to where the green ground wire needs to attach. So the question is this...can I attach the white with the green since both seem to be ground wires?
You want to go from THIS...
Use the chassis for a grounding point.
In the bottom picture you can see ( L2 where BLACK wire is connected )
(N is neutral where WHITE wire is connected ) ( L1 where RED wire is connected )
( Green is GROUND and connects to the case of the dryer )
Besides the number of wires in each cord, there are two important things to notice. First, in the 4-wire configuration, notice that the dryer's grounding strap is folded back on itself--the whole point of the 4-wire cord is to separate the ground from the neutral. In the 3-wire configuration, the grounding strap is left intact--neutral and ground are tied together.
If I were doing this change I would remove strap and put ground
( GREEN wire ) where strap is shown sticking out - much better.
Thanks for using FixYa!!
Here are the diagrams for the receptacle too just in case...
