No you have to change the plug, the reason for the 4 prong is for extra safety is has a 4 wire going to it the 3 only has 3 wires, best choice is to change the outlet, then you can delete one of the extra ground wires

Hi, You can either change the outlet or change the cord. Easiest would be to get a new caord. Make sure you get the right one. There are two different ground posts.
One is straight and one is L shaped.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

I have a Kenmore 90 series dryer, it started sparking on the plug that goes on the wall, what could it be? thanks


You have a loose connection in the wall plug would be my first guess and is shorting out, you need to turn off the breaker going to the dryer and unplug it from the wall remove the screws holding the plug in the wall and check for loose wires and tighten if you find anything loose, or it could just be a bad plug that needs replaced. Good luck hope this helps.

Kenmore dryer 70 series 66722690 - has power but won't start (no humming noise, no ticking noise from timer, and no light when you open door) nothing!


I would check the breaker before you go any further. Here are some things to remember when you do this. 1) The breaker for the dryer is generally located outside on the side of the house somewhere near the electric meter. Most 220vac breakers are, which include any electric range, cooktop, wall oven, etc. 2) When your checking the breaker, actually physically touch it. Sometimes breakers can trip a but the spring that actually pulls the breaker to off position is weak and by visual inspection would appear on. Just simply reach in and tap the bar lightly in the off direction. If it pops over to the off position, turn it back on then go check your dryer. If the breaker passes inspection, I would unplug the machine because there migfht be a short at the terminal block where the plug connects to the dryer. After you've unplugged it, remove the back and check to see if everything is ok. I have a strong feeling that you won't need to get to this point cause I'm betting on breaker.

Kenmore Dryer 70 series. Recently moved. Clothes take 3 cycles to dry when vented to wall vent. Woreks fine when vented to room.


Your wall vent is restricting your air flow somehow. Many times they get plugged with lint. When this happens it activates a thermal safety switch in the dryer and doesn't let it heat to the proper level.

The flame sensor is right next to the ignitor. Also see this link for what it looks like:
