Yes. The cord should have a green wire to hook to ground to prevent you getting shocked. don-ohio

SOURCE: I have a Maytag dryer

The laws in most states are changing to where the NEC2.gif Code requires the use of this 4 prong plug. It is quite common to see this 4 prong plug installed in new apartment buildings and rental properties because of this law requirement.
So what you have is a red, black, white and green wire on the dryer side of this wire plug.
The red and the black wires are your hots (110 volts) and shall be connected on each outside screw of the drier electrical terminal and the white wire (neutral) shall be connected to the center screw.
So now you are left with an extra green wire with no place to hook it huh?
I suggest just loosing one of the drier electrical terminal mounting screws and hooking it there. The ideal here is to ground the outside body of this machine to prevent possibility of electrical shock if water is present (like a leak somewhere nearby).
In actuality this really serves no viable purpose because the white wire does exacly the same thing, just in a different manor,,, but hey,,, our law makers are not certified electricians either. They just like new ways of stimulating sales and profits.
.
Note: if you are in a rental property and this 4 prong wall receptical is installed, I would not suggest you remove it or change it in any manor, as this will open yourself up to possibile legal liabilities if an incident were to occur,, like fire.

I have a 3 wire cord green,black,and white which wire goes where on the female end


Going by your colors, the black is always the hot wire.
Think of something that has burned black.
The white wire and the green wires are grounded.
However, I hope you have a very small dryer, because the 95 % of the dryers in the US, you need 2 hot wires, not one.
There is such a thing as a 110 volt dryer, but they are rare.
A 110 volt dryer would take an electric cord as you have described.
Be blessed.

There are cut wires and no cord for the second hand dishwasher i purchased and I need to find out what wires I am connecting and where


There should be a small junction box under the dishwasher behind the front toe panel. There should be three wires:

BLACK - HOT (120VAC)
WHITE - NEUTRAL (0 VAC)
GREEN - GROUND

You can purchase a three conductor power cord from any hardware store. A 3-prong power tool power cord works the best, as they have a durable outer sheathing and have good current handling properties.

Simply match the corresponding colors (black to black, white to white) and ground the green wire to the chassis. There should be a ground lug somewhere to connect it to.

Use wire lugs when splicing wires together and use the wire strain relief (if equipped) on the junction box. The strain relief is located at the point where the wire enters the junction box and keeps the wires from inadvertently being pulled.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Connecting wiring into oven


The house wiring was not up to code so the white wire was not supposed to connect to the white terminal on the stove. Instead the white wire connected to the red, the black to the black and bare ground wire connected to the white terminal thus providing ground and two termianls with 110 each.

Maytag model MDE7057AYW 5600 Watts dryer runs ,but


5600 watts will not operate off 120 volts.
This is a 220/240 volt hookup.
There are 2 legs of 120 volts each that operate the dryer.
The only part requiring 220v is the heater.
Otherwise 120v routes through the various controls and relays.

I need to unplug and move a built-in Maytag dishwasher


Follow these steps:

1. Locate the electrical service breaker for your appliance and turn it off at the breaker panel. If it is plugged in by a serivce outlet, unplug the unit.
2. Turn off the water source under the sink.
3. Disconnect the drain line under the sink.
4. Remove the lower panel under the dishwasher door.
5. Locate the small electrical junction box under the dishwasher and disconnect the wires leads. Remember, standard household wiring is as follows: BLACK (HOT - 110-120VAC), WHITE (NEUTRAL - 0VAC, GREEN (or bare copper) is GROUND. Make sure you reconnect the wires in this fashion with wire lug nuts. If you have a local outlet plug you may leave the wiring instact.
6. Locate the fill valve (Usually on the left hand side of the dishwasher). This is where the water supply line connects. Disconnect the water supply line from the fill valve.
7. The dishwasher should have a couple of mounting screws located where the top of the dishwasher cabinet meets the underside of the cabinet.
8. With everything removed, the dishwasher should now be free and slide out from under the cabinet.

Let me know if you have further questions. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: You can also remove the water supply line at the fitting under the sink if it makes things easier.

Need to change the cord on my Maytag MDE6000AYW from 3 prong to 4 prong. The (4) prong cable has black, white, green, red cables. Which colored cable connects to which terminal inside the dryer?


BLACK and RED are 110-120VAC each. WHITE is NEUTRAL - does not carry power. GREEN is GROUND. The Black, Red, and White Wires should connect to the terminal block & should correspond the colored wires already connected to the block from the machine. The Green wire should be grounded to the equipment chassis. I hope this answers your question.
