Usually there are 3 screws in a row. The cord has 3 wires in a row.
Connect either outside wire to either outside screw. Connect center wire to center screw.
Look at type of plug on cord.

How to connect a four wire pigtail


The white wire goes to the middle terminal post on the dryer.
The red and black wires go to the outside terminal posts.Doesn't matter which.
The green ground wire needs to be attached to the outside metal case...anywhere. The easiest way is to put the eyelet on the screw that attaches the terminal cover plate when you put it back on. Sandwich it between the screw head, the plate and the case.
Hope that helps. Let me know if you need more info

Elkectric dryer won't start


to put it kindly depending on way you connected wires unit could be damaged,replace pigtail with three wire and outlet to original.outlet wires should be black,red and white. turn breaker off attach white to middle and red,black to sides,"either side is fine".Attach dryer pigtail in same manner with white on white and if plug in and turn breaker on.If there is no operation at this point dryer possibly damaged from previous wiring.Just remember be safe when working with electrical and ask before trying to change things that aren't the same.

I just purchased a new home and the pigtail of my Amana dryer is different than the electrical outlet and the dryer does not have a schematic to install a new 4 wire pigtail. Is there an adapter to change...


There are no adapters. But a dryer will accept a 3 prong or 4 prong cord. The extra green wire just needs to be connected to any screw on the dryer casing. Some newer dryers have a screw there for it..or u can just use the closest screw avalable......usually the screw for the cover works good.

Dryer electric cord


The national electrical code requires the installation of a four wire system for ALL 240 volt equipment. He will be putting in a four wire dryer receptacle. The pigtail you'll need will be a standard four wire pigtail. The way it is connected is: the red and black go to the two outermost terminals, the white goes to the center terminal and the green goes to a good chassis ground point. If there is a jumper strap from the center terminal to the chassis ground point it must be removed.

A three wire pigtail is connected thusly. The two outer wires go to the two outer terminals on the dryer, the center lead goes to the center of the dryer terminal block. If its a four wire pigtail, the outer leads go to the two outer terminals on the dryer, the white goes to the center terminal. The jumper strap on the center is removed and the green goes to chassis ground.
