there should be instructions on the cord that you purchased. if not here it is, on your dryer, the 3 prongs are L1-N-L2.. and the green is a ground L1 line 1, L2 line 2, and N nuetral. L1 and L2 dont make a diff. as long as the whie(nuetral) is in middle terminal and the green screws to hte ground screw

SOURCE: I need to change the dryer power cord on my Amana

The two wires on either side of the power cord are your HOT leads. They are the voltage carrying conductors. These two wires will connect to the terminal block on the RED and BLACK wires. The middle wire is NEUTRAL and goes to the WHITE wire at the terminal block. Now...with a 3-wire configuration you will need to connect a grounding strap to the neutral wire and ground it to the grounding lug of the appliance. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r793520-3_prong_4_prong_power_cord_conversion

The main difference between 3 and 4 wire configuration is how the neutral and ground wires are installed. In a four wire configuration these two are independent of each other. In a 3 wire configuration ground and neutral are connected together.

If you have any questions about this repair, please ask me. I hope this helps you.

Good day,
White wires are always a neutral. They should be attached to the center post. Here's a look.
This is a 4 wire settup.

I need to know how wires on the power cord connect


Red on the left.

White in the middle.

Black on the right.

Green on the case/chassis ground or green screw with the small dashes on it.


If you don't have a white wire but the the green in the middle position.

White/red = far left
Green = middle
Black = right

Amana dryer, changing out the electrical plug from 3 to 4 prong


2116163639_1_-180x177.jpg
For example; Green wire goes to green screw on machine. White in the middle, red on left, black on right. (observed small color coded wires connecting in back-ground as well.)

In general, each color should match. Meaning, white with white.

I own an Amana Heavy Duty dryer, model # NDE880AYW, and I'm trying to change a three prong cord for a four prong cord. I know nothing about electricals so I need help at a very elementary level. I have...


First off. Do any and all electrical connections with the PLUG detached from the wall receptacle.. The Green Wire is earth ground and should be connected to the nearest Chassis or Frame terminal.. There should be one near the terminal block for the two power ( red & black) and one neutral ( white).. It's OK to double up the green wire with other green wires.. so your answer is YES.. connect it to the nearest Green wire terminal.. This green wire provides protection to you and anyone else from getting electrocuted by bonding the frame/chassis as well as other sheet metal parts to earth ground.. Hope that helps...

Replacing a pigtail


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.
