On a 220 set-up the green wire goes to the neutral bar where the white wires from the 110 breakers are connected. the two remaing wires, black and white go to the double breaker you will be using for power. it doesn't matter which wire goes to either breaker. at the power outlet that the dryer is the green wire goes to the ground (:-) the right hand side of this simple diagram, and it doesn't matter which of the two remaining wires hook up to the left side of the outlet (black and white)

Wiring diagram for al1430R I have a old 220 volt 2 wire circut. how do i replace it with a L1430R Receptical?


you may as well run a new 4 Wire cord from the panel to this receptacle as its a 3 pole 4 wire receptacle you will need to add 2 wires a Neutral and a Safety Ground wire anyway and you will most likely need to widen the hole that the existing 2 wires protrude from,anyway as old as these wires are they need changing out anyway

I just purchased a Whirlpool Duel Dryer (Model #WED9150WW1) and hooked it up to an existing three-wire cord. The only thing that works is the light inside the dryer when you open the door. No lights on...


here is a diagram of how a three/four wire plug hooks up:

if it is hooked up correctly, then you will need to have a multimeter and check for the 220volts on the terminal. I do not think its the door as the panel is not getting power, if you have the 220 volts on the terminal then you will need to remove the back top panel and find the wiring diagram and check for voltage to the control board. Since you did just purchase it, then they should have a repair guy that can come out and fix it. Basically, if you can verify that the machine is getting the correct voltage then there is a problem with the machine, more then likely the control board. I hope this helped Tim

We have brought home two new roper dryers now because neither one of them heats up. we hooked up a brand new 3 prong plug to the new dryers and plugged them into the existing 220 outlet that our old dryer...


You need to double check that your wiring it up correctly at the junction block on the machine. if thats correct. Most likley is that you actually only have 110 volts going to the machine it will run fine but will not HEAT. check voltage at plug or where its wired into back of unit you should have 110 volts on two out of three with the third being ground if you dont you have a bad outlet or breaker in elec.panel

I put in a new heat element and a new theromsat


you'll need a meter to read out your parts,if you read out the heater you would of known it was good and wouldn't of had to change it,check the thermal fuse located on the blower wheel housing,if your lint filter is inside the fuse is in the front,if it's on top the fuse is in the back,also if it is the thermal fuse you probably need a clean out,clean the duct out where the lint filter slides into,vac out the inside of the dryer and clean out the vent line if it's a long run blow it out with a leaf blower,makw sure the outside flapper is blowing fully open you should clean out the dryer like this every year so you don't have a fire

Frigidaire gleq2152es0 dryer will not heat up. Runs just no heat.


At most you may find a relay in a dryer. They're usually wired pretty simple. Keep in mind that 220 comes from both wires, and meets in the middle, the load. Be careful if you test live! A control may break just one wire. At a failed component, you'll have 220 on both legs, but no go. Jumping that component will make the unit run. Don't jump the elements!!! You can put a false load where the elements go, but it must be 220 volt, like two lite bulbs in series. I make my tester out of two lite bulb pigtail fixtures wired in series. At 110 they glow less bright then at 220.

We bought an electric dryer from sears outlet


220 Cords are usually color coded - BLACK, WHITE, RED, GREEN for Ground. Inside the dryer where you connect the wires should be the same colors. Just put the Black with the Black and so on. Make sure the plug is for a dryer and not a stove.

Dryer NO Power
You really need a volt / ohm meter to check for Continuity & Volts
Its well worth the investment... $15.00 bucks give or take a few
I would check to see if you have 220v to back of dryer where the cord mounts to dryer,
If dryer is getting only 1 leg 110 volts instead of the 220 will it not heat.
Check themostates & heater for Continuity... Most models, Now have a..
Hi-limit fuse that need to be checked for Continuity and replaced if bad
if you dont have a ohm meter you can hook the wires together
with a small piece of wire and by pass the themostates and hi limit fuse to see if thats the problem or not
