Question about Dryers
We have a three prong electrical cord and our new house is 4 prong outlet. What can we do?
You must change the cord on the dryer. New house constuction electrical code requires a 4 prong receptical (double grounded).
You can buy a cord at Lowes, Home depo, Sears, etc. When you install the new cord there is a brass strap from the neutral post to the dryer cabinet that you must remove.The extra green wire in the cord connects to the cabinet. Your old cord probably won't be color coded, but the new one will be. Red is hot, goes on the end post, (doesn't matter whichn end). white is neutral and goes on the middle post. black is hot & goes on the other end post.& green goes to the cabinet.
