I need to hook up a 4-prong power cord to a Maytag LDE7334ACE dryer with a 3-prong power cord. I know how to disconnect the 3-prong power cord, but I'm not sure where to attach the green ground wire from the 4-prong power cord.

Need to know the correct 3 prong power supply cord to use for a Maytag Atlantis dryer.


Hi fredmcmur227...

There are many different pattern plugs and recepticals.
It is impossible to tell you which power cord to buy.
What you will need to do is find out what the receptical for the dryer looks like and match the receptical with the power plug your going to purchase.
I will also include a link to show you how to hook up a 3 prong wire power plug.
Please take time to rate me

Need to change power cord on maytag dryer from 3 prong to 4


Always disconnect electricity before beginning this process.

All the 4 wire cords I have seen are color-coded. The white wire goes to the middle terminal, the green wire goes to any screw you can reach that goes into the metal case of the dyer. The red and black go to the outside terminals of the block and while it doesn't matter which color goes to which terminal I usually follow the color code of the interior dryer wiring that already exists. Good Luck.

I have a Maytag dryer with a 3-prong plug. My new


The following link explains how to convert a 3-prong cord to a 4-prong:

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

The main difference is how the Neutral (WHITE) and Ground (GREEN or BARE) wires are installed. In a 4-wire configuration, the neutral and ground are INDEPENDENT of each other and are not connected together.

Read through the link and let me know if you have questions. I hope this helps you.

Wire 3 prong cord


Electric Dryer How To Hook Up Cord pixel_trans.gifFor Three Prong Cords
the Center cord wire goes on the center terminal,
the left on the left ,
and the right on the right.

Note: There should be a ground strap or wire that runs from the center terminal to the dryer case.

For Four Prong Cords
the White cord wire goes in the center,
the Red on the Right,
the Black on the Left.
The green cord wire goes to the case or the external ground screw.

Note: Be sure to disconnect the ground wire or strap that runs from the center terminal to the case. In this Photo (A Whirlpool Dryer) I have ran the wire that runs from the center terminal, the Light Green wire, back to itself rather than cutting it off, just incase I need to put a 3 prong cord back on it some day. The whole purpose of this 3 prong / 4 prong thing is it separates the neutral from the ground. pixel_trans.gif pixel_trans.gif3 Prong Cord Whirlpool Dryer Example terminalblock.jpg 4 Prong Cord Whirlpool Dryer Example 4prongcord_small.jpg

Trying to hook a 3 prong hook up with 4 prong cord how do i do it?


A 3 prong plug is for 240 volt (hot-hot-ground) the 4 prong plug is for 120/240 volt (hot-hot-neutral-ground). If your device requires a 4 prong plug, it is not a good idea to connect it to a 3 prong circuit (you will create a possible lethal electrical condition). If your device requires a 3 prong connection, a 4 prong cord can be used by not connecting the neutral (white wire). If you have any questions, let me know.

I need help hooking up my Maytag Dryer


here's a link you can try that explains both the 3 and 4 prong dryer cord configurations.

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

If this is an older home that already has a 3-prong receptacle installed, you can still use a 3-prong cord. However, if this a newer home, or if you plan on relocating the appliance, or making any repairs to the existing receptacle, you need to use the 4-prong. I hope this helps you.

If you weren't talking about the dryer cord configuration and need assistance with something else, please let me know.

Switching the cord on maytag neptune dryer


dre, sounds like you moved and the dryer electrical outlet is only 3 pronged, This tells me that the dryer will be grounded through the neutral leg. Just hook up the cord and you should be fine. Make sure the white is in the center. Catriver.
