You hook the Red and Black wires to the gold colored screws on the dryer, and the white wire goes to the siolver colored screw. The Green wire goes to the Body.

Need wiring diagram for electric cord attachment


Wiring Option1: Wiring Option2: OLDER HOMES AND ELECTRIC DRYERS NEWER HOMES AND ELECTRIC DRYERS range%203-wire_cord_connection_250.jpg range%204-wire_cord_connection_250.jpg

NEMA 10-30R 30AMP-125/250VOLT
dryer-4-wire-outlet.jpg
NEMA 14-30 30AMP-125/250VOLT

This system can be configured depending on what your wiring situation is.
For example you could be faced with the following situations:
converting an old 3-wire outlet
to a new electric dryer
converting a new 4-wire outlet
to an old electric dryer

Changing dryer plug


These two pictures illustrate the power wiring on a the terminal of an electric dryer. The one on top is the old-style three-wire configuration. Most people have this type in their homes. New code changes, though, require that dryers now have a four-wire cord, shown on the bottom.
Besides the number of wires in each cord, there are two important things to notice. First, in the four-wire configuration, notice that the dryer's grounding strap is folded back on itself. The whole point of the four-wire cord is to separate the ground from the neutral. The green wire (the "new" extra wire in the four-wire cord) is attached to the dryer cabinet. In the three-wire configuration, the grounding strap is left intact and the neutral and ground are tied together.


Sure hope this helps you find a resolution to your delimma! Best wishes.

It came with no instructions and i need the wrirng diagram for the new pigtail that needs to be tied into the wiring...


Usually Wires are color coded, and if you have multiples of the same color you will most likely need the old pigtail to identify which wire goes where in the pigtail. If you don't have the wiring diagram handy that's the best way to do things. Haynes and Chilton manuals have those with wire color information if you don't have the original pigtail to use as a reference. Without more information on what area you're working on, I can't be of any more help than that as some sensors have multiple voltages that go to and leave them from the computer it's connected to.

Used maytag electric dryer installation question


First off, you should be wiring your power cord directly to the terminal block inside the dryer. If someone just cut off the cord that is terminated inside the dryer, and you are attempting to splice the new cord onto the old one.. you are making a mistake.. take the new cord and bond it directly to the terminal block inside the dryer. If you have a new 4-wire power cord, you are probably dealing with a red/black/white and green wire. ( assuming it is a four prong plug).. The black and red wires are the power lines themselves and should mate with the red and black wires inside the dryer. The green ( is frame ground) and is normally bonded to a stud near the terminal block or the dryer frame. The white is the neutral line and is normally tied to the terminal in the middle and between the red and black tie points.. In line splices should not be done on this appliance.. Hope this helps..

I just purchased a new home and the pigtail of my Amana dryer is different than the electrical outlet and the dryer does not have a schematic to install a new 4 wire pigtail. Is there an adapter to change...


There are no adapters. But a dryer will accept a 3 prong or 4 prong cord. The extra green wire just needs to be connected to any screw on the dryer casing. Some newer dryers have a screw there for it..or u can just use the closest screw avalable......usually the screw for the cover works good.
