Need hook up diargam for 240 volt 30 amp washer dryer residential xyo-gnd recepticals.now for free .like your web site said. or i will presume this is just a scam trying to lure people in for some...
No scams here... most of us on FixYa are like me.... we enjoy helping people out with their everyday problems. I work nights and do this as a hobby... I used to teach advanced electronics and Radar for the US Navy.
It is difficult for me to give you a diagram for "xyo-gnd" since the term is not familiar to me, even though I worked as an industrial field service engineer. My guess is that you need to connect your washer/dryer to your electrical outlet.
First thing.... I need to know where you are located, and what type of power service you have coming into your home. Most US homes are wired for 115 Volts and require a separate input for 230 volt appliances. Most European, Australian, and Asian homes are wired for 230 volts and connecting your washer/dryer will be simpler, but still require some work.
The first thing we will need to know is how the power comes into your home and how it is distributed. Look at your circuit breaker panel. You will have a mains coming in that feeds a 2 pole "main" breaker- it will be rated at between 100 and 300 AMPS in most homes.
Next... the other breakers in the panel.... how many are "2 pole" breakers (what looks like 2 switches connected together) and how many are single pole? Only a 2 pole breaker can supply power for your washer/dryer.
Now, you need to determine which of the two pole breakers are rated high enough for 30 amp service. If none say 30 amps or higher, you will need to install a new breaker and run a 10/3 AWG type UF cable to where you are installing the washer/dryer. Find a recepticle that matches your washer/dryer plugs, and install it with the black wire to the brass lug, the white wire to the silver one, and the green wire to the green lug.
Once you have the wiring done, you will be good to go!
If you already have a dual breaker rated at 30 amps supplying an outlet where you are installing the washer/dryer, match up the plugs/outlets the same way... black wire to brass, white to silver, green to ground. You may have to purchase either the correct outlet, or (more likely) the correct plug, since most units do not ship with power cords.
