If you change the plug on your dryer to a three prong and plug it in that way it will work, however it will not be up to the latest electrical codes where the dryer needs to have its own ground, not share that ground with a neutral. I would recommend running a new wire 10/3 with ground with a new four prong outlet (note: if you already have the 10/3 wire there you can just as easily change the outlet; red and black are hot wires, white is your neutral, and the bare copper is your separated ground) . However if you would like to just change the plug to a three prong you have to make sure your ground bar is tied to your neutral bar and there you only have three wires, 2 hot and one neutral.

The "RINGER: [number] ( 1 - 4 or OFF )" will blink and the ringer will sound.

5. Press the right side top button "VOL +/DIR" The display will change from "RINGER: 1" to "RINGER: 2" and the sound will change accordingly.

6. Press the right side top button "VOL +/DIR" again. The display will change from "RINGER: 2" to "RINGER: 3" and the sound will change accordingly.

9. Press the right side top button "VOL +/DIR" again. The display will change from "RINGER: OFF" to "RINGER: 1" and the sound will change accordingly.

10. ...and so on, cycling through the four choices & OFF: when you decide to select one, press the "SELECT" end of the central "SELECT/PROG" rocker switch.

11. The display light will go out, the phone will chirp in acceptance, and it will be ready to use the chosen ringer. --

Can you take a dryer that has a 4 prog plug and put a 3 prong plug on it?


Yes, you can put a 3-prong plug in place of the 4-prong plug.

The 4-prong plug has red, black, white, and green/yellow wires while the 3-prong plug has red, black, and white wires. The only difference is the green/yellow (ground) wire of the 4-prong plug which is attached to the dryer cabinet. All you have to do is connect the wires of the 3-prong plug in the same way the same wire colors are connected with the 4-prong plug then connect the terminal on the cabinet, where the green/yellow (ground) wire of the 4-prong plug is formerly connected, to the white wire of the 3-prong plug.

I have a 4 prong pigtail


Here is what I believe you have.

The 3 prong plug on your dryer is configured with 2 lines of power and 1 ground. The 4 prong receptical is 2 lines of power, 1 neutral, and 1 ground.
You will have to turn off the breaker to see how the receptical is wired by pulling it out and looking at it. You can then buy a 4 prong plug to match it and only wire up the 3 prongs you need for your dryer and leave the 4th prong empty.

Good Luck and hope this helps
