Question about Kenmore 500 6952 Dryer
On the back of the dryer, remove the screw(s) that hold the access cover to the back panel that cover the terminal block where the cord goes through the back panel and connects to the wiring terminal power block, loosen the two screws on the cord clamp the clamp it to the back of the dryer just enough to release the cord, remove the four nuts / screws that are connecting the 4 wires from the cord to the terminal block and or the back of the dryer,with the new 3 wire cord just match the colors on the terminal block with the same color wires that are connected to the other side of the terminal block, red,black on the outer most terminals and the white or green to the middle terminal, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU PLACE A JUMPER WIRE/STRAP FROM THE MIDDLE TERMINAL WHERE THE WHITE OR GREEN WIRE CONNECTS TO THE TERMINAL BLOCK OVER TO THE CASE/CABINET OF THE DRYER, THIS CAN CONNECT TO THE CASE AT ANY AVAILABLE SCREW NEAR THE TERMINAL BLOCK! In short this means that the neutral and ground of the dryer must be connected together in a 3 wire set-up.
