Question about Whirlpool LER5636P Electric Dryer
Just got a Whirlpool model LER4634PQ0 electric dryer which has a four prong plug. My house has 3 prong receptacle for 220 v dryer. Changed receptacle to a 4 prong, but left white terminal blank since only three wirtes in the box. Dryer now won't start. Sgould a remove the 4 wire plug and replace with a three wire plug and the original receptacle? ... or what?
To put it kindly depending on way you connected wires unit could be damaged,replace pigtail with three wire and outlet to original.outlet wires should be black,red and white. turn breaker off attach white to middle and red,black to sides,"either side is fine".Attach dryer pigtail in same manner with white on white and if plug in and turn breaker on.If there is no operation at this point dryer possibly damaged from previous wiring.Just remember be safe when working with electrical and ask before trying to change things that aren't the same.
