Question about Bosch Axxis+ WFR 2460 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Change from 3 wire to 4 wire dryer cord on bosch Axxis

Terminal block has two terminals labeled "L" and one labeled "N" and the previous three cord had the middle wire going to what seems to be a ground.
I have a green wire and a red wire going to each of the "L", a white wire going to the "N" and a black wire going to the ground. It seems weird that no wire from the dryer goes the the "N". I am afraid to plug it in to try. Can you help?

I need a close up picture of the power cord and associated wiring for a Kenmore 110.88752792 stacked washer/dryer


It seems to get confusing where the wires go in the back where the cord connects to on your brand new,or previously dryer that you have brought to a home thats new to you

4 wires goes as such with oldtech2332.jpgthe red wire going on the right side,the black wire going on the left,the white wire goes on the center terminal. Now what exactly do you do with the green wires is what your asking yourself. It goes onto the cabinet after removing that little link that went from the center terminal that was beweeen the cabinet and and the white wire terminal.Yes remove that link and install the green wire where that link was just attached to a minute ago.

3 WIRE CORD

Tip

Electric Dryer power connections



The supply cord on an electric dryer can be 3 wire or 4 wire,
depending on the existing receptacle. All new construction
must have 4 wire receptacles for dryer hook ups.
At the back of the dryer you will see a set of three
terminals. The outside terminals are for connecting the
outside wires of the cord. In a 4wire hook up, the center
terminal is for the center, insulated, white wire, the
neutral. The bare copper or green wire of the 4wire cord
gets connected above these terminals to a lug or stud on
the body of the dryer. There may be a strap there. For a
4wire cord connection this strap is connected to the stud
only.
The change for a 3wire connection is that the center green
wire of the 3wire cord connects to the center of the three
power terminals along with the grounding strap from the
dryer body above.

I have an Electrolux dryer with a four prong cord, and have moved to a house with a three prong receptacle. The dryer appears to have an integrated grounding strap connecting the frame to the center...


Connect the three-prong wire you have the way the same wires (Line 1, Neutral, and Line 2) of the four-prong wires are connected to the terminal block then connect the integrated grounding strap to the Neutral (center) terminal.

The power cord on my Whirlpool washing machine is not connected. There are 4 cables (red, black, white, and green). I can see where the black, white, and red, but where does the green one go? There is...


The following link explains how to correctly install a power cord on your dryer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575913-installing_a_220_vac_appliance_cord

The main difference between the 3-wire and 4-wire configuration is how the Neutral (WHITE) wire and Ground (GREEN or BARE COPPER) wire are terminated on the terminal block in the back of the dryer:

- In a 4-wire configuration, these two wires are INDEPENDENT of each other and are terminated separately.

Terminate the wires at the terminal block by matching the corresponding colors:

RED to RED (HOT) 120VAC
BLACK to BLACK (HOT) 120VAC
WHITE to WHITE (Neutral) 0VAC
GREEN (Ground) - attached to a ground lug that grounds it to the equipment cabinet.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you

Install a four lead plug onto a dryer with a three lead plug. Which wires to which terminals


The following link explains how to correctly install a power cord on your appliance:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575913-installing_a_220_vac_appliance_cord

The main difference is how the Neutral (WHITE) wire and Ground (GREEN or BARE COPPER) wire are terminated on the terminal block in the back of the dryer:

- In a 3-wire configuration, these two wires are connected together via a ground strap at the terminal block.

- In a 4-wire configuration these two wires are independent of each other are NOT terminated together. Neutral is terminated at the terminal block and ground is terminated to the equipment cabinet via a ground lug.

NOTE: Newer homes built after the year 2000 REQUIRE a 4-wire configuration to be in complaince with the National Electric Code. In addition, some newer appliances may not work correctly without a 4-wire power cord. You want to refer back to your installation instructs to verify your power requirements.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Hi, I live in Argentina and I have a kenmore 96093800 Dryer. This Machine has 120/240v and his plug has 4 pins. Two pins are flat, one pin is cilindric, and the fourth pin is en angule. How can I connect...


Are you connecting this Dryer cord to the Dryer or are you looking for a wall plug with this same configuration to plug into. This is a standard double ground configuration and you can buy the wall receptacle at a hardware store. Your house should have 4 wires to this, 2 lines, a neutral, and a ground. As always the recommendation is that you have an electrician install your house receptacle. Your Dryer power cord is something you can install however. The two outside terminals on your dryer 240 volt wiring block are connected to the two outside wires on your power cord. It does not matter which wire goes to which side. Your two inside wires on the power cord are connected like this. One to the middle terminal on your 240 volt dryer terminal block and one is connected to the dryer case itself. Again it does not matter which wire goes to which ground. Make sure all of your connections are tight, as loose terminals eventually burn up. Do Not plug in your dryer power cord until everything is hooked up tight. I actually had a customer plug in his cord and then try to connect the wires to the dryer. The wires arced together and blew the terminals into molten metal which burned this customers hands and face. Do not do and electical repair unless you know what you are doing. On your cord the two straight terminals are line terminals, the round and L shaped terminals are grounds or neutrals. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

4 wire outlet and 3 wire dryer, how do i hook up the new 4 wire to the dryer

The main difference between 3-wire configuration and 4-wire, is how the Neutral (WHITE) wire and Ground (GREEN or BARE COPPER) wires are terminated at the terminal block on the back of the dryer. In a 4-wire configuration the Ground and Neutral are independent of each other are not terminated together. Match the corresponding color wires at the terminal block and make sure you remove any ground straps from the neutral (if installed). Connect the ground wire to the equipment cabinet.

I have a new 4 prong plug to replace a old 3 prong on dryer


On a three wire configuration, the ground and the negative are tied together at the center position, using the dryer ground strap. Following is a description of the difference between three and four wire. Hope it helps you.
These two pictures illustrate the power wiring on a the terminal of an electric dryer. The one on top/left is the old-style three-wire configuration. Most people have this type in their homes. New code changes, though, require that dryers now have a four-wire cord, shown on the bottom/right.
Besides the number of wires in each cord, there are two important things to notice. First, in the four-wire configuration, notice that the dryer's grounding strap is folded back on itself. The whole point of the four-wire cord is to separate the ground from the neutral. The green wire (the "new" extra wire in the four-wire cord) is attached to the dryer cabinet. In the three-wire configuration, the grounding strap is left intact and the neutral and ground are tied together.


Sure hope this helps you find a resolution to your delimma! Best wishes.

Bought used dryer. Plugs don't match. Can cord be switched?


Yes, these cords can easily be switched. When you remove the three prong cord from the terminal block in the rear of the unit, you will wire the four prong in the same way. Black and red go to the outside terminals, white to the middle terminal, and the green wire goes to the cabinet or ground screw on the outside (usually, there is a greenish looking bolt around the terminal block door area for this to go). The only difference in a 3 and 4 prong configuration is the extra ground (green) wire. Good luck and let me know if you need further information.
