Question about Washing Machines
If you follow the existing wire to the rear of the unit where it hooks in, there should be a removable cover with only one or two screws holding it in place. Go ahead and take this off. It should have a picture inside on this cover but they are sometimes hard to read and understand. So here's the most basic way to hook it up. If you look directly in there will be a plastic piece with three slots for wires to go, called a wiring lug. Down below it, connected to the middle slot there will be a copper/metal strap connected to the ground. You need to remove this strap and discard it, it will not be reused. Be sure to save the screws to the strap because those will be reused. Connect the black wire from your plug to the far left lug, the white wire to the center lug, the red wire to the far right lug, and the green/ground wire will connect to the unit body with the screw that was taken from the lower portion of the metal strap earlier. To further explain what wire does what this is standard on any US household 240 volt wiring. Black and red are hot wires that carry 120 volts each. The white wire is a neutral wire to relieve excess voltage back to your breaker panel. The green wire is the ground on plug in situations but in hard wire or internal house wiring situations the ground wire will just be a bare copper wire.
