Question about Dryers
Need help with installing a terminal block for my tappan dryer. I got the part, but no instructions or guide on how to make sure I have the connections right.
To connect your dryer you must place the black and red wires one on the left and one on the right terminals.
The white wire is called the neutral and needs to be connected to the middle terminal.
The ground (green or bare white) needs to be connected to the ground terminal or lug which will be away from the other three wire terminals.
BE SURE TO TURN OFF THE POWER.
The wires coming from the dryer go to the hot wires inside the machine.
If you trace them by removing the covers, you will see the two hot wires that connect to the black and red wires from your power source, go to hot terminals in the dryer.
Does not matter which one goes to black and which goes to red.
They should be the outside two on the terminal block.
The neutral (white wire from the power source) goes to ground (chassis) inside of the machine.
