I have a 3 prong wall mount outlet for my dyer and want to put in a 4 prong. how do I do it?


Veronica,
If you are talking about the outlet you plug your dryer into, that would require an certified electrician to make the change since that is covered by electrical codes. If you are talking about changing the pigtail on the dryer, you could do that yourself. Just remember to take the brass strip off that goes from the middle of power cord block to the ground. You have to separate the neutral from the ground in a four wire situation. Hope this helps!

I have a three prong plug washer/dryer but a 4 prong outlet need an adapter


YOU DONT ADAPT IT, U REPLACE THE RECEPTACLE OR USE THE CORRECT PRONG CORD. THE CORDS ARE NOT THAT EXPENSIVE FROM 20 TO 30 BUCKS AND EVEN CHEAPER ON LINE. IF U HAVE A NEWER HOME IT IS MANDATED BY LAW THAT YOU USE 4 PRONG CORD NOT 3 PRONG UNLESS THE HOME CAME WITH A 3 PRONG OUTLET.

Connection dryer has 3 prong and outlet is 4 prong.


You will either have to get a 4 prong cord or 3 prong outlet. I would opt for the 4 prong cord. only difference is the four prong cord has a neutral where the 3 prong doesn't
