Question about Maytag Atlantis MDE7400AY Electric Dryer
ON THE 4 PRONG CORD THERE ARE 4 WIRES AT THE END RED,BLK, WHITE, GREEN. ON THE DRYER IT HAS YELLOW, LT BLUE, BLK, RED. WHAT GOES WHERE ? DEE
First: the cord: The green is chassis ground. The white is neutral (a ground from the power company) .. red and black are 'hot'. Never plug this in until the installation is complete.
On the dryer, these are labeled as well. Install a strain relief clamp and nut on the wire setting up to go through the box knockout... nut on the inside of the box...you'll tighten it after you make up the connections. Match up the blacks and reds. The others may be installed so the neutral and the ground are both connected to the same point if not separately labeled. If one of the points just goes to the chassis (there may be what looks like an arrow made up of 4 horizontal lines pointing down on the label)...hook the green there. Install the white to the other terminal...again it is called neutral. Make all connections tight. If the motor works when you start the timer...you're in business.
