I need to change a 3 prong to 4 prong on a Kenmore 800 series dryer. I know where the green ground wire grounds, but not the other 3. :)


Either way, plug or dryer cord the white wire goes with the green wire, they are pretty much the same. On the dryer at the block where you are connecting the cord, look just above it and you'll see wires coming into it, the red and black are on the outside, I'm not sure which color on which side but the white and green go in the middle on top one another and the red and black match respectively.

Kenmore model 110 ele dryer has 3 wires giong into outlet but outlet is going to be connected to a 4 wire supply. red black white green which color is hot what color is ground how do i connect the...


This sounds like you should call an electrician, or someone that knows wiring. Red and Black are both hot, White is neutral, and Green is ground. Remove the ground strap from the center of the terminal block to the case. Put green wire to the case, white in the middle, and red or black to either side. Your last question I do not understand. But it sounds like you need an electrician to connect a 4 prong receptacle, with the proper 4 conductor wire to your breaker box.

IF THE WIRES ARE RED, BLACK, WHITE, AND GREEN,
THE WHITE WIRE GOES TO THE CENTER TERMINAL.
THE GREEN WIRE ATTACHES TO A GROUND SCREW ON THE BACK OF THE DRYER. UNHOOK THE WIRE GOING FROM THE CENTER TERMINAL TO THE GROUND SCREW TO ISOLATE THE ELECTRICAL NEUTRAL FROM EARTH GROUND ( THE WHITE WIRE FROM THE GREEN ONE)
THE RED AND BLACK WIRES GO ON THE LEFT AND RIGHT OUTER TERMINALS ON THE TERMINAL BLOCK. THOSE TWO ARE INTERCHANGABLE.

This is common issue. Due to some building codes the 3-prong configuration is no longer used in homes. The wiring is similar with one exception. The 4-wire plug uses an additional (WHITE) NEUTRAL wire.

Here's a brief explanation of how the plugs are configured:

Dryer 3 prong wire configuration:

RED - 120 VAC
GREEN - GROUND
BLACK - 120 VAC

Dryer 4 prong wire configuration:

RED - 120 VAC
GREEN - GROUND
BLACK - 120 VAC
WHITE - NEUTRAL

BOTH plugs provide the SAME source voltages to your appliance:

220 VAC - provided across the RED and BLACK leads are what drives your heating circuitry.
120 VAC - usually tapped of the BLACK wire is used to run the drive motor and timer on MOST dryers.

The wire terminal block in the back of the dryer should have a black, white, and red wire running to it from the dryer wiring harness. With the 4 prong plug, simply attach the BLACK, WHITE and RED wires at the terminal block ensuring that you match the RED and BLACK wires as they are configured and attach the WHITE wire at the remaining terminal lug. Make sure you screw them all down securely. Attach the remaining GREEN wire to chassis (dryer frame) ground. I hope this helps you.
