Question about Dryers
Posted by Anonymous on
If its a four prong cord your wires should definitely be color coded. There should be a black, red, white, and green wire. Since the dryer was a 3 prong wired dryer originally your going to see a terminal that is (or was if it was removed already) jumpered to the frame of the dryer using a piece of metal. Your going to remove that piece of metal. Now the one terminal (not the frame) will be where you connect your white wire or neutral. The other terminal the the neutral terminal was jumpered to is where you will connect your green or ground wire. This allows for the dryer to separate the ground terminal and and neutral terminal in case of ground fault situation. There will be only two terminals left which are your hot terminals for the black and red wires. Order on these hot terminals doesn't matter however I recommend to keep it neat you don't cross any wires and keep each hot wire on the side it falls on.
