Question about Whirlpool LEB6300 Electric Dryer
Where does green wire from drier switch connect to neutral or hot
Hi Larry, The green wire is colored green to identify "earth" meaning it is a ground. Do not connect to "hot" nor "neutral", it MUST be connected to the chassis/ground only. That should answer your question. Thanks for coming to "fixya" and please take a second to rate this answer according to it's helpfulness. Good luck macmarkus :)

Ok lets talk about it for a minute. All dryers are not the same. You need to consult the installation instructions. The cord has 4 wires. Red,Black,White,and Green. The white wire has traduionally been used on appliances as a common wire and mounts in the center. It always gets mounted in the center terminal so that it can feed both sides. It IS the common feed from the power source for both sides of the breaker. The red and the black wires are each 125 volt hot wires an as you may know mount to each side of neutral (white). The green wire is a safety wire. It provides an extra path for electricity to earth in case of a direct shorted live wire to cabinet. So... you need to attach the green wire directly to the frame of the appliance. BUT you need to see according to the install directions if the metal stirp between white and frame gets removed or stay put. You got to get it right because if the electronics **** out and the techs come out they look for flawed installs. Anythang weird voids the warranty.

Tips for a great answer:
Dec 05, 2014 | Electrical Supplies
Blue (Light to Hot) Blue to Black (optional)
Black (Fan to Hot) Black to Black
Green (Ground to Ground) Green to Green
If you do not have a green lead you might see a green screw to attach the ground wire from the house power. The fan has the optional light fixture future connect the blue wire to the black hot wire. If you have the optional light fixture you may want to connect it to a separate switch power.
