Sorry there is no adapter for the plug. You need to change the cord from the dryer or change the plug in wall. You can get a parts at homedepot.

I have a three prong plug washer/dryer but a 4 prong outlet need an adapter


YOU DONT ADAPT IT, U REPLACE THE RECEPTACLE OR USE THE CORRECT PRONG CORD. THE CORDS ARE NOT THAT EXPENSIVE FROM 20 TO 30 BUCKS AND EVEN CHEAPER ON LINE. IF U HAVE A NEWER HOME IT IS MANDATED BY LAW THAT YOU USE 4 PRONG CORD NOT 3 PRONG UNLESS THE HOME CAME WITH A 3 PRONG OUTLET.

I have a Frigidaire FAFS4473LW Steam Washer- 3 prong. I moved into a new place with a 4 prong. Do I need a 4 prong cord, or can I change the 4 prong adapter on the wall?


Hi nancy huerta...

You can change the cord or the receptical...
It will be easier to change the cord...
Purchase a four prong plug cord that will fit into your receptical, then wire your dryer for 4 wire instead of three wire use.
To see a picture and explanation of how to wire your dryer for a 4 wire plug go to the following webpage.

My dryer's power cord has 4 prongs, my wall socket has 3 holes, can I change the power cord, or is there an adapter to change from 4 to 3 pronges.


Un screw the 2 hex screws from the back of the dryer where the cord goes in.

There will be 3 screws that connect the cord to the dryer, loosen or remove them to remove the 4 prong cord.

A hardware store will carry the 3 prong cord you need, tell them it is for a dryer.

Re-connect the 3 prong cord to the dryer.

Plug in and test after you have installed the new cord.

I have a kenmore dryer model 11060212990, and the plug has three prongs, but the wall socket is a four prong. what do i need to do?


You will need to purchase a 4-prong power cord and convert the appliance to meet the needs of the wall receptacle. This is a requirement of the National Electric Code in homes that have the 4-prong receptacle. The following link explains how to convert your dryer cord from a 3-prong to a 4-prong:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r793520-3_prong_4_prong_power_cord_conversion

These rules apply to the conversion of electric ranges, as well. Read through the link thoroughly and let me know if you have questions. If you require additional assistance, please let me know before you rate the solution. I hope this helps you.
