Question about KitchenAid KEYS850LQ Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Hi, I took the dryer cord off my KEYS750LQ0 to put another one off that would fit the plug on the wall. Now I am trying to put the cord back on and can't figure it out. Could I get a picture or explanation of where to put the cords, screws and cover? Thanks, Emily Frey

KEYS750LQ0 dryer doesn't start it just hums when I push start


Check the belt. You may have to open the machine up to look. if the belt is ok turn the drum by hand and see if the motor pulley is also turning. While you are in there look for foreign objects that have wedged against the drum preventing it from turning.

I have a Frigidaire FAFS4473LW Steam Washer- 3 prong. I moved into a new place with a 4 prong. Do I need a 4 prong cord, or can I change the 4 prong adapter on the wall?


Hi nancy huerta...

You can change the cord or the receptical...
It will be easier to change the cord...
Purchase a four prong plug cord that will fit into your receptical, then wire your dryer for 4 wire instead of three wire use.
To see a picture and explanation of how to wire your dryer for a 4 wire plug go to the following webpage.

Change cord on estate whirlpool dryer to fit outlet in wall


If this is an ELECTRIC dryer, the following link explains how to install either a 3-prong or 4-prong power cord:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575913-installing_a_220_vac_appliance_cord

If this is a GAS dryer, the standard color code for a three prong grounded plug is:

BLACK - HOT
WHITE - NEUTRAL
GREEN - GROUND

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Purchase the correct wall receptical needed to fit the plug on the dryer or purchase a new cord that will work with the wall outlet to fit the dyer. Either way will work that is easiest for you

Our whirlpool Duet dryer has three prong plug and home has four prong outlet. Do we change the cord or the outlet?


You should change the plug at the wall. From your description, your dryer plug has two hot wires and a ground.

Your existing plug probably has 4 wires to it - two hots (120 volts each), a neutral (white), and a ground (green). The two hots are probably black or black and some other color.

You will need to match the plug on your dryer cord with the plug at the wall. The type of plug required should be described in your owner's manual. If you don't have that, then take a digital picture of the plug on the cord of your dryer and bring it to your local hardware or home improvement store. They should be able to match the companion wall plug for you.

Make sure the power is off (important). Remove the existing wall plug. When you wire it back up - this time with only three wires, connect the two hots (black and some other color) to the two hot prongs (terminals) and the green wire to the ground prong. Put a wire nut on the end of the white wire and tuck it back into the connection box. That's it. Turn the power back on and test for proper voltage and wiring configuration at the wall plug before you plug the dryer back in.

If you aren't familiar or comfortable with working on electrical apparatus, you should have a licensed electrician do this work for you. This solution also assumes you are in the USA.

My dryer would not run when I pulled the knob to start. I took the power cord out of the wall outlet. When I replace the cord into the outlet and pulled the knob the outlet sparked.


you most likely have a loose wire inside that wall outlet. use an extension cord to plug your dryer into another outlet that you know works properly and see it your dryer will work on that power source. If it does, just replace the receptacle in that wall outlet. If the dryer still wont run, then you know you have a problem with the dryer itself. If that is the case get back and I can talk you through solving that problem also.

Electric cord


What you should get is a new 4 wire cord. It is way less complicated than trying to change out the wall receptacle.
On a 4 wire dryer cord you have White(common) in the middle. Red and Black are hot and go on either side of white. If you really want to make it look good you can put red to red on the terminal and black to black but you don't have to. Some dryers may not have those color hot wires. Green hooks to the chassis with a green screw or any screw connected directly to the frame.
