Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
You need to go to a local hardware store and buy a new cord. There is an adapter but it is more exspensive than the cord and I have seen problems with them overheating because of the fine dust getting in them. Your cord is easy to replace there is a access panel that is held on by a screw where the cord goes into the machine. You will need to remove the screws holding the electric wires there will be 3 on your dryer. The 4 wire cord has an extra ground. You can put this under the screw that holds the access panel on. The two outside wire connectors on your dryer are the hot wires each carries 110v the center wire is the neutral wire and also acts as a ground on a 3 wire dryer. The 4th wire is an ground for house trailers and some areas require them as a seperate ground from the neutral. I hope this helps
