Question about Frigidaire GLEQ2152ES Electric Dryer
Convert three pin plug to four pi. The wall has a four pin mount, but my dryer has a three pin plug. I bought a four pin wire, but when the dryer has three terminals with *no* color coded wires so I am not sure which wire goes where?
These two pictures illustrate the power wiring on a the terminal of an electric dryer. The one on top is the old-style three-wire configuration. Most people have this type in their homes. New code changes, though, require that dryers now have a four-wire cord, shown on the bottom.
Besides the number of wires in each cord, there are two important things to notice. First, in the four-wire configuration, notice that the dryer's grounding strap is folded back on itself. The whole point of the four-wire cord is to separate the ground from the neutral. The green wire (the "new" extra wire in the four-wire cord) is attached to the dryer cabinet. In the three-wire configuration, the grounding strap is left intact and the neutral and ground are tied together.
Sure hope this helps you find a resolution to your delimma! Best wishes.
