Question about LG DLE2101 Electric Dryer
This is not a common thing to happen so, If that wire exploded the advice is to get first an electrician to check on the wiring of the house, secondly call a service technician to check on the dryer. Good luck.

If your dryer came with a 4-prong plug, do not change it. For the very reasons you quoted with the article, you may screw up the 110v accessories required of your appliance (like the clock or digital display). It is best to change the household outlet to a 4-prong type. Just make sure your wiring is correct. You will need a neutral on the 4th leg, which means you will probably have to run new wiring from the outlet to the distribution panel.

If you move the cord @ the outlet and the dryer shuts off replace outlet if the prongs on the cord are not damaged.
If you wiggle at the dryer side and it shuts off un plug the dryer remove acess cover and inspect end of cord. Ck. and make sure terminal nuts are tight. and not burnt due to a loose connection.

Well a dryer works off of 240 Volts. It splits that up. The light in your dryer uses 110V but the heating elements use 240V. The motor which won't start uses 110V and the controls use 110V. There could be a couple prolems and of which it could be. You need to get a meter and check that both leads are getting 110V from each hot lead to neutral. Also when you switch back to a three prong, the ground is no longer separate and you need to jumper the ground to the neutral terminal. (When you have a four prong cable the ground is separate for the fact that its safer). Even if the circuit breaker is on, I would check that each terminal of the breaker is putting out 110V to ground (If so it needs to be replaced, its simple to do just wire it like the other one, and turn off main power to replace it so there is no power to the buss bar its attached to. Just be careful not to touch the main feed wires to the panel as they are still powered). If none of this pans out, it could also be that your dryer needs that four wire plug (I would check with your manufacturer). Either way, if your dryer worked before it shouldn't be a dryer problem now
