Question about Amana NDE2335AY Electric Dryer
I'm switching the "pigtail" on my Amana dryer, from a 3 prong to a 4 prong...once I popped the back panel to get to the 3 wires, there were no color codes...sooo, to put my new 4 prong cord on I need to know which cord 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.
