If this is a gas dryer you would only need L1 OR L2.... NOT BOTH PHASES, this unit only needs the one leg of either A 120Volts or B 120Volts phase NOT BOTH PHASES 240 volts A.C. not 240 V.A.C. as in an electrically heated element will require to heat the system, NOW ...be careful now because one hot phase is connected where it shouldn't be!!!!

How to connect the power to the dryer


most likely 240volts as most 120 volt dryers are already wired,depending on if its a 3 or 4 wire system depending on local electrical codes,but if its a 3 wire cord,take the RED to terminal L1 and Black to L2 terminal on the dryer terminal board HINT:(the RED and Black can go on either L1 or L2 they are interchangable) ,then the White wire to the N neutral terminal on the dryer terminal board usuall between the L1 and L2 terminal,if theres a Green Wire on the cord this is safety ground and can be attached to any metallic part on the dryer,if its a gray flat cord the 2 outside wires are L1 and L2 the center is Neutral,
so its:
RED=L1 or L2
BLACK=L1 or L2
WHITE=N or Neutral
GREEN=Safety Ground the metal dryer frame

I am trying to wire a dayton booster pump. it shows a L1 and L2 connection on the 115v connection. L1 goes to P1 L2 goes to T4. on the 220v connection it shows L1 and L2. L1 goes to wire P1 and L2 goes...


The power cord has a green ground wire; two hot wires, which are black and red; and a white neutral wire. Attach the neutral to the middle connector and the two hot wires to either end of the terminal.
In order to safely ground the machine the green ground wire must be securely connected to the dryer frame. There may be a screw on the frame where you can attach the ground

Hi.i got a new dryer and its 3 prong but the house is 4 prong so i got a 4 prong and im not sure where the wires go. The diagram shows L1 N L2 than the green ground but the new 4 prong only has green red...


Ok. Let's simplify this for you. First and foremost you will want to remove the copper strip that goes from your center cord post the to case/cabinet of the dryer. This is to seperate your neutral and grounds within the machine. Some models used a green jumper wire instead of a copper strip but the idea is the same.
Now on the new cord the green (ground) wire is supposed to go to the connection point the copper strip used to go to on the cabinet. The white wire (neautral) is supposed to go to the center terminal connection on the terminal block and the red and black (L1 and L2) wires can go to either of the outside terminals.
The only difference in a four wire cord application is the segregation of the electrical neutral and the ground wires.
Good luck, hope this helps you!

Bought new timer for Prodigy but thought i set the wires from the old timer in proper sequence but doesnt work so maybe wrong wires on wrong terminals


Look at the wires. They have markings on them that match the markings on the timer. Did you check the Non-resetable limit? If it is open the dryer will not run.89819b0.jpg

Whirlpool Dryer LER7646EQ1 Not heating


If your drive motor is turning, but your timer and heating circuits are not working, it sounds like you could be missing one leg of your 220 service. The dryer timer and heating circuits utilize the full 220 from the receptacle, while the drive motor only uses 120 VAC. Unplug your dryer and check the voltage at the wall receptacle. You should read 220-240 VAC across the two hot leads (these are the two large slots). The wires are BLACK - L1 & RED - L2. If you only read 120, check each slot to the NEUTRAL slot (white wire) to determine which one is missing. Chances are, you may have a break in the L2 (red wire) line. Here's the wiring scheme depending in which type of power cord you may have:

3-prong color code:

BLACK (HOT – 110-120VAC) – May also be referred to as L1
RED (HOT – 110-120VAC) – May also be referred to as L2
WHITE (NEUTRAL – 0VAC) – Usually grounded to the equipment frame via a jumper wire or metal strap.

4-prong color code:

BLACK (HOT – 110-120VAC) – May also be referred to as L1
RED (HOT – 110-120VAC) – May also be referred to as L2
WHITE (NEUTRAL – 0VAC) – DO NOT ground to equipment frame.
GREEN (GROUND) – Attach to equipment frame.

Please doublecheck and let me know. If your source voltage is correct, perform continuity checks from the end of the power cord to the terminal block in the back of the dryer. Inspect for any burned or broken wires. If you are not able to isolate a problem at this point, please post back and let me know. I can assist you further. I hope this helps.

I have a 3-prong plug on a 14-year-old dryer. Now must change to 4-plug. Is that possible ... and if so, how?


A three Prong contains L1 (Line1), L2 (Line2) and N (Neutral). A four prong will contain L1 (Line1), L2 (Line2), N (Neutral) and G (Ground) typically a green wire.
Connect the three wires as normal, connect the green wire to the screw provided on the cabinet.
