Four prong cord three prong outlet


Ok this is how you will wire the three prong to the dryer.

You have 2 wires that are gold/brass in color, those are the hot wires.
You have 1 wire that is crome/silver in color, that is the neutral

On back of fryer where you wire it you put the wires on like this right to left Gold/brass hot, silver/nuetral, then the other hot wire.

On back of dryer you will have screws from right to left this color gold/brass, silver/crome, then gold/brass again.

If you do have a 4 wire cord the extra wire is ground and you screw that to the machine body.

We have moved and the three prong cord now needs to be four prong


Ok here is how to hook up looking at dryer. Left brass screw is hot put red or black wire on. Center screw silver is neutral put white wire on. Right brass is also hot put the red or black wire on which one you have left. The green you ground to the dryer body or you can put with the white wire.

The reason why you have to hot wires is that it is a 240 volt dryer. Each hot wire caries 120 volts. The hot wires are the red and black. The white is a neutral witch is also a ground

I hope this helps. If you have any questions please ask before you rate.

Good Luck And Thank You for the post

Putting the belt back on this dryer


Hello Friend, Replacing a dryer belt is very simple. Just remove front of dryer cabinet. unplug wires from dryer door switch. Just slide a new belt over the drum with the belt grooves facing to the inside. Underneath drum you will see a tention wheel next to motor. Install belt around tention wheel and around motor shaft pully. Re-install front dryer cabinet. Make sure to plug in the wires to the door switch and make sure that the drum is re-inserted back over the felt glide on inner cabinet front. Happy to help, Tim.

Replacing door on electric whirlpool dryer


On the bottom right and left of the dryer cabinet are 2 metal clips.
They are about 3 inches from the floor.
The door panel has corresponding slots in it for these clips to go into.
Put the clips in the door panel slot first, then align the door panel with the cabinet and close it shut. Replace 2 screws in the top right and left inside panel.

Baffles are loose on my dyer maytag neptune mde5500


Hi Nick, welcome to FixYa!

1. Open the door and remove the two screws that secure each of the door hinges to the dryer frame. With the door open so you can take a hold of it, simply pull the whole door out of the notches that the hinges fit into.
Next, remove the two screws on the opposite side of the frame where the door closes to. (along with the two white plastic trim pieces the screws go thru) Once the door is off and the screws are out, pull the entire front panel forward and then it will lift off the tabs at the bottom and you can set it aside.
next, look up near the top of the cabinet, on each side, for the metal hooks that secure the top to the cabinet. Remove the screw (5/16" nut driver) that secures each hook to the cabinet. Take the hook off, repeat for the other side.
Now you can lift up the top of the machine, and rotate the drum so that the loose baffle is at the top so you can work on the baffle easily. Rotate the drum to the next baffle, etc.

I hope you find this answer helpful.

Tumbling vane screw came out - other is loose, banging as clothes tumble - how do i pry(?) open the lid (top shell) to access the drum exterior?


Hi and welcome...
You don't want to pry on anything, that top is secured by hooks and you have to do some dis-assembly to get the top open.

1. Open the door and remove the two screws that secure each of the door hinges to the dryer frame. With the door open so you can take a hold of it, simply pull the whole door out of the notches that the hinges fit into. (This is a reversable door designed for easy removal by the customer)
2. Remove the two screws on the opposite side of the frame where the door closes to. (along with the two white plastic trim pieces the screws go thru)
3. Once the door is off and the screws are out, pull the entire front panel forward and then it will lift off the tabs at the bottom and you can set it aside.
4. Look up near the top of the cabinet, on each side, for the metal hooks that secure the top to the cabinet. Remove the screw (5/16" nut driver) that secures each hook to the cabinet. Take the hook off, repeat for the other side.
Lift top.

Hope that helps.

Removing cabinet of kenmore elite washing machine


It would help if I had your model number, but I'm assuming you have a Kenmore top loader that has the fill hoses attached under the left rear of the washer casing. With the brass clips removed, you should be able to move the cabinet off the frame slightly to give you enough room to reach your hand under the wash tub rim and disconnect the hoses. You may need a set of pliers to remove the hose clamps. I hope this helps you.

If you are having difficulty, please post back and let me know.

Was there a reason why you were removing the cabinet? Do you need further assistance?

Difficulty installing brass clips on kenmore model 110.92274100


first off the clips should go right in place if the cabinet is installed properly..with the lid open tip the cabinet and place it in place.. the very front of cabinet must go UNDER the front frame plate of washer. And the side then sit atop the frame.(in the very rear,perhaps 2 inches in from either side there is as a small slot cut into the cabinet and a corresponding tab on the washer frame itself. it should literally sit right into place(might take a little finagling, but it'll fit nicely.. when this happens the brass clips, will first hook into the back wall of cabinet and then with a little pressure push and snap into the cabinet you removed
