Question about Dryers
New 4 plug purchased at Home Depot has black, red, white and green wire connection however the Maytag has blue & green wire on the left, 2 white wires in the middle and black & yellow wires on the right. With the new 4 plug what do I connect the black, red, white & green wires to on the 3 connections on the Maytag?
For short, just dont mind the color.. the black wire from the new plug goes to right in/on the appliance terminal block, the white from the new plug goes to both white in the middle of the same terminal block and the red wire from the new plug goes to left terminal block of the appliance therminal block and of coarse the green from the new plug goes to the appliance frame.. no need nor sense in trying to figure the wire color of the appliance as it does not mean anything really and it does not follow any rules nor standards..

For example; Green wire goes to green screw on machine. White in the middle, red on left, black on right. (observed small color coded wires connecting in back-ground as well.)
In general, each color should match. Meaning, white with white.

the green wire will attach to the dryer cabinet. The white wire will attach to the middle and the other two(red& black) will attach to the outside of the terminal block.

The two wires on either side of the power cord are your HOT leads. They are the voltage carrying conductors. These two wires will connect to the terminal block on the RED and BLACK wires. The middle wire is NEUTRAL and goes to the WHITE wire at the terminal block. Now...with a 3-wire configuration you will need to connect a grounding strap to the neutral wire and ground it to the grounding lug of the appliance. The following link explains:
The main difference between 3 and 4 wire configuration is how the neutral and ground wires are installed. In a four wire configuration these two are independent of each other. In a 3 wire configuration ground and neutral are connected together.
If you have any questions about this repair, please ask me. I hope this helps you.
