Should have 220v between the Red and the Black. White in the middle and the green to the case of the dryer.
But sometimes colors mean nothing because the wall plug may be
wired wrong.
Check breaker and the wall plug for 220v.
if this was helpful please rate me.

How do you change 3 prong to 4 prong cord?


On a three-prong cord there is a black, a red, and a white wire. The black and red are hot and the white is neutral (return). Return on the dryer is also in these cases the ground which is shunted to the netal case of the dryer. On a four prong, you have black, red, white, and green wires. The black, red, and white are the same as before, but the green is a direct connection to the dryer case for ground. This ensures proper grounding and was first introduced in to mobile home installations, where the electrical system may not always be properly grounded.

I need to change my 3 prong to a 4 prong


Unplug the dryer then remove the terminal block cover and disconnect the 3-prong cord from the dryer. Note that the cord has red , black, and white wires but sometimes the red and black wires are both replaced by same color wire, usually gray and can switch places. There's also a ground strap wire also connected to the center terminal together with the white (neutral) wire.

Get yourself a 4-prong cord and note that it has red, black, white, and green/yellow wires but sometimes, like the 3-pronged one, the red and black wires are both replaced by same color wire, usually gray and can also switch places. All you have to do now is connect the 3 wires in the same manner they are connected as 3-prong cord to the terminal block. The ground strap wire now just need to be connected to the remaining 4th wire, the green/yellow wire instead of the center terminal together with the white (neutral) wire. Reinstall the terminal block cover and it's done.

It can be observed that converting a 3-prong cord to 4-prong cord is merely splitting the neutral line and the ground thereby increasing the number of prongs from 3 to 4 whereas, on the other hand, converting a 4-prong cord to 3-prong cord is merely joining the neutral line (white) and the ground (green/yellow) thereby reducing the number of prongs from 4 to 3.. The links below might enlighten you further on this matter.

I have a FEQ1442es dryer. I need to change it from a 4 pronged plug to a three prong, as that is what outlet my condo has... Is there any special order etc. in which to attatch the connections on the...


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 wired pig tail...dryer has 3 terminals...can I connect the ground wire to the neutral terminal?


Match the red to red, black to black, white to center. Remove the green from the center terminal that connects to the case and terminate it back on the center white terminal. Hook the green from the cord to the cabinet where you removed the green from in previous step. Be sure the black and red wires are on the outside terminals!

Dryer is turning but no heat is coming out


If you had a 3 prong originaly you probably have only 3 wires to work with, either a red and black and white or a black and a black with a red stripe and a bare stranded wire. The black and red are ALWAYS the 2 hot wires 230 volt. The white or bare are the neutral / common wires. If you only have 3 you will need to get your equipment ground from a cold water line to the 4th prong.
Another option leave the 3 prong in the wall and install the old 3 prong pig tail on the new dryer then ground the frame of the dryer to the nearest cold water line. The water line must be metalic for this to work.

I am trying tochange my


This is common issue. Due to some building codes the 3-prong configuration is no longer used in homes. The wiring is similar with one exception. The 4-wire plug uses an additional (WHITE) NEUTRAL wire.

Here's a brief explanation of how the plugs are configured:

Dryer 3 prong wire configuration:

RED - 120 VAC
GREEN - GROUND
BLACK - 120 VAC

Dryer 4 prong wire configuration:

RED - 120 VAC
GREEN - GROUND
BLACK - 120 VAC
WHITE - NEUTRAL

BOTH plugs provide the SAME source voltages to your appliance:

220 VAC - provided across the RED and BLACK leads are what drives your heating circuitry.
120 VAC - usually tapped of the BLACK wire is used to run the drive motor and timer on MOST dryers.

The wire terminal block in the back of the dryer should have a black, white, and red wire running to it from the dryer wiring harness. With the 4 prong plug, simply attach the BLACK, WHITE and RED wires at the terminal block ensuring that you match the RED and BLACK wires as they are configured and attach the WHITE wire at the remaining terminal lug. Make sure you screw them all down securely. Attach the remaining GREEN wire to chassis (dryer frame) ground. I hope this helps you.
