New 4 pin plug


All domestic dryers have a 3 screw terminal block which you connect the cord to. 3 wire cords connect the outer wires to the outer terminal screws, with the center wire connected to the center terminal block screw. 4 wire cords connect with the red or black to either outer terminal screw, the white connected to the center terminal block screw, and the green to the adjcent cabinet screw usually green in color.

Where can I find a service manual? I need to change the 3 wire power cord to a 4 wire cord.


first install the RED & BLACK conductors on the cord to the L1 & L2 terminals or the 2 outer terminals on the 3 position terminal strip on the dryer,next take the WHITE ( NEUTRAL) wire on the cord connect it to the "N" terminal on the dryer terminal strip usually located between the 2 phase wires RED & BLACK so the terminal strip will be(RED-WHITE-BLACK) red & black can go on either outer terminal as they are not polarity sensitive due to the A.C. current, then the GREEN on the power cord goes to any metallic portion on the dryer case

Replacing electrical cord


if you buy a color coded cord and plug then red and black go on thee 2 outer terminals of the power terminal and the white wire goes between these as this is the neutral connection and if it has a green ground wire connect this anywhere to the metal case of the unit, if its a gray cord with no colors then the 2 outer wire on the cord go to the outer terminals on the units power terminal block and the center wire on this cord goes to the center terminal on the unit

Need to replace 4 prong cord with a 3 prong cord on a new 500 series dryer.


On the back of the dryer, remove the screw(s) that hold the access cover to the back panel that cover the terminal block where the cord goes through the back panel and connects to the wiring terminal power block, loosen the two screws on the cord clamp the clamp it to the back of the dryer just enough to release the cord, remove the four nuts / screws that are connecting the 4 wires from the cord to the terminal block and or the back of the dryer,with the new 3 wire cord just match the colors on the terminal block with the same color wires that are connected to the other side of the terminal block, red,black on the outer most terminals and the white or green to the middle terminal, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU PLACE A JUMPER WIRE/STRAP FROM THE MIDDLE TERMINAL WHERE THE WHITE OR GREEN WIRE CONNECTS TO THE TERMINAL BLOCK OVER TO THE CASE/CABINET OF THE DRYER, THIS CAN CONNECT TO THE CASE AT ANY AVAILABLE SCREW NEAR THE TERMINAL BLOCK! In short this means that the neutral and ground of the dryer must be connected together in a 3 wire set-up.
GOOD LUCK!

We were recently given a kenmore dryer, without a power cord. How do I attach the 3 wire power cord that I bought to relace it?


Attach the power cord as follows:

1. Remove the cover on the terminal block on the back of the dryer.

2. Match the corresponding wire colors as follows:

a. RED - HOT (120VAC)
b. BLACK - HOT (120VAC)
c. WHITE - Neutral (0 VAC) - should have a ground strap attached, tying it equipment ground.

3. Make sure you use the power cord strain relief clamp when installing the power cord to prevent chaffing of the insulation and wire strain which can lead to broken wires.

NOTE: If the wires are not color coded, the outer two wires (left and right) are the HOT leads. The center conductor is Neutral.

For clarification purposes, the following link explains dryer power cord configurations/installation in detail:

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

Changing 220 plugs need discription of positive and negitive to dryer


If you are installing a 3 prong cord , then the 2 outer wires , are the power lines , and the center is the neutral . On the dryer , the center wire connects to the white wire on the terminal block . The 2 outer cord wires . 1 connects to the black wire terminal on the block ( outside terminal ) , and the other outside wire , connects to the red ( outside terminal ) on the block . Its the same if you are installing a 4 wire cord , except the green , connects to the ground screw on the dryer itself .

Which wires go where there is no diagram..there is one spot by itself then three spot in a row the colors of wire are green black white and red


Hi, If you are hooking up a power cord to a dryer, the white wire goes to the middle post and the red and black go on the outer posts. The 4th wire will fasten to the ground screw just next to the access panel for the electric hook up.
If this is a 3 wire cord, put the center wire to the middle post and the outer wiers go to the outer posts. It does not matter which outer wire you put on the outer post.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Correctyly wiring power supply to Kenmore dryer


A three wire pigtail is connected thusly. The two outer wires go to the two outer terminals on the dryer, the center lead goes to the center of the dryer terminal block. If its a four wire pigtail, the outer leads go to the two outer terminals on the dryer, the white goes to the center terminal. The jumper strap on the center is removed and the green goes to chassis ground.
