Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
Normally a 220V-AC dryer plug will have three (3) wires. Two (2) of these are 120 V-AC each while the third one is the ground wire. The dryer cord (plug set) will have three (3) prongs and three (3) wires with either ring or fork terminals on the other end. The ouside wires are the voltage supply, while the center (middle one) is the ground wire. Your manual should also show this in the installation section for your unit.
Connect them using the installation guide for your dryer, which should show the two outside connections for the power, while the center connection should show as the ground, but BE CAREFUL and check to be sure before plugging in the plug/cord set into the wall 220 V-AC receptacle!!
Typically, newer appliances have a green colored nut/screw indicating the ground connection/conductor.
