Yes absolutely. Just go to any hardware store and tell the clerk what u want to do. They will sell you the appliance cord which you can then install by pairing up the colors on each set. black to black, white to white, green to green. Turn off the breaker before you proceed.

Can I put a plug on a Kenmore dishwasher rather than hardwire it back in?


Of course you can! But do try to get the hot wire connected to the black wire of the dishwasher, and the neutral to the white wire; and of course, the green wire is your ground wire, which gets attached to the grounding screw inside the junction box.

How to repair my kenmore dish washer not powering on but shocked me before it shut down for good ?


it sounds to me as though you may have a bare wire giving a direct short to the system.therefore by having a hot wire grounding out on the dishwasher body, it is running that current to the dishwasher body where if you touch the dishwasher you will recieve a shock.this also doesnt allow the electricity to go to where it is needed to power your appliance.

there should be screws inside the door at the top and sometimes even on the sides depending on the quality of the person who installed it. after removing all the screws turn off electrical breaker in power box. unplug cord if visible under sink. also unhook drain hose and the pull washer out while feeding cord and hose through wall of cabinet.

I have a kenmore dishwasher quitewash1 it will not get power or come on


Make sure the circuit breakers to the dish washer are on. Cycle them off then on to make sure. This will reset the GFI breaker. Plug the machine into the wall plug and make sure the wall plug in not a GFI also. If it is reset the wall plug and you should have power.

What does it mean when a gas cooker needs hardwiring


Hi,
It means that it does not have a cord and a plug to just plug it into a wall socket...
It needs to be "hardwired" into the electrical circuit with a regular piece of wire...

I have a Kenmore Diswasher model. 587.15103801 - My question is - can I wire a 3 prong power cord to it? If so, what do I need to purchase? Thanks


The dishwasher SHOULD have a three prong cord, or be hardwired using using a 3 conductor electrical wire capable of handing 15 to 20 amps (12 or 10 gauge wire). If you desire to use a cord with a plug on the end, you can purchase a power tool replacment cord rated at 15 amps or higher from the hardware store (I have found power tool replacement cords to be very durable). Make sure you purchase one that is long enough the accomodate pulling the dishwasher out from under the counter, if required. The power cord is installed in a junction box behind the lower toe panel that's located directly below the door. The wire color coding is as follows:

BLACK - HOT (120 VAC)
WHITE - NEUTRAL (0 VAC)
GREEN - GROUND

Match the color wires with the wires inside the dishwasher junction box and twist together using wire lugs. Attach the ground wire to the appropriate ground lug.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Need hoses and electric cord


Water inlet hoses can be had at your local hardware store same with drain hoses, electric cords? If this is a built in unit then you have it hardwired into your homes electrical system. Plug in cords would be a no no.
