How to replace electrical cord on dryer
This is actually one of the easiest repairs to make on most dryers.
Unplug the dryer from the wall of course.
At the point where the dryer cord enters the dryer itself there is usually a plate. One screw should hold this plate in place. Remove the screw and pull the plate out (it should only be held in by a couple of tabs). The cord is attached to the power supply with three (or four) terminals. Back the screws out and slide the cord out. Make careful note as to which color goes to which terminal. Usually the black (or red) color goes to the gold screw and the white goes to the silver screw. The green screw holds the ground wire in place which is also usually a green cord.
Once you have done this step then loosen the screws that hold the cord in place on the plate. This fitting should open as you loosen the screws and the cord should pull out easily. Then thread the new cord through the fitting and reverse the process. Just remember to thread the cord through BEFORE you connect the wires so that you don't have to undo your work!
Hope this helps!
