    I can't answer the question as I'm not familiar with this dryer, so I have posted this message as a clarification request in order to keep your question open to others to provide solutions. I simply wanted to advise you that it is standard practice to cut the power cord off appliances which are dangerous or faulty to prevent them from being used. If you didn't obtain this dryer from a reputable or trustworthy source, I would consider having it professionally inspected before using it. I'm sure someone will post a solution to your problem, howver, If you do re-attach the power cord, I strongly advise connecting this appliance to a breaker.

Replacing electrical cord


if you buy a color coded cord and plug then red and black go on thee 2 outer terminals of the power terminal and the white wire goes between these as this is the neutral connection and if it has a green ground wire connect this anywhere to the metal case of the unit, if its a gray cord with no colors then the 2 outer wire on the cord go to the outer terminals on the units power terminal block and the center wire on this cord goes to the center terminal on the unit

Maytag electrical dryer model # PAV2300AWW power supply layout


The following link explains how to properly connect the power cord to your dryer:

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

Pay particular attention to WHICH configuration you have. Your power cord will either be a 3-wire or 4-wire configuration. NOTE: If the wires are not color coded, the outer two wires (left and right) will be the HOT leads. The center conductor is the neutral.

If you're new home is equipped with a 4-wire outlet, you are required to update the dryer to a 4-prong power cord to be in compliance with the National Electic Code.

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

We were recently given a kenmore dryer, without a power cord. How do I attach the 3 wire power cord that I bought to relace it?


Attach the power cord as follows:

1. Remove the cover on the terminal block on the back of the dryer.

2. Match the corresponding wire colors as follows:

a. RED - HOT (120VAC)
b. BLACK - HOT (120VAC)
c. WHITE - Neutral (0 VAC) - should have a ground strap attached, tying it equipment ground.

3. Make sure you use the power cord strain relief clamp when installing the power cord to prevent chaffing of the insulation and wire strain which can lead to broken wires.

NOTE: If the wires are not color coded, the outer two wires (left and right) are the HOT leads. The center conductor is Neutral.

For clarification purposes, the following link explains dryer power cord configurations/installation in detail:

If you are connecting a power cord with a 3-wire configuration, you match the corresponding wire colors from the power cord to the wires on the terminal block in the back of the dryer. The correct color-code is as follows:

RED - HOT (120VAC)
BLACK - HOT (120VAC)
WHITE - NEUTRAL (0VAC)*

*There should be a ground strap or ground wire connected to neutral at the terminal block in a 3-wire configuration.

NOTE: If the wires are not color-coded, the outer two wires (Left and Right) are the HOT leads. The center conductor is Neutral.

If you have any questions, you can refer to this link for further explanation:

This explains the difference in 4-wire and 3-wire configurations. I hope this helps you.

Dryer did not come with electrical cord so I bought one.


The following link explains how to correctly install a power cord on your dryer:

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

The main difference between the 3-wire and 4-wire configuraiton is how the Neutral (WHITE) wire and Ground (GREEN or BARE COPPER) wire are terminated on the terminal block in the back of the dryer:

- In a 3-wire configuration, these two wires are connected together via a ground strap at the terminal block.

Terminate the wires at the terminal block by matching the corresponding colors:

RED to RED (HOT) 120VAC
BLACK to BLACK (HOT) 120VAC
WHITE to WHITE (Neutral) 0VAC - Neutral should also have a ground strap attached that grounds it to the equipment cabinet or ground lug.

NOTE: Newer homes built after the year 2000 REQUIRE a 4-wire configuration to be in complaince with the National Electric Code. In addition, some newer appliances may not work correctly without a 4-wire power cord.

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

My whirlpool wt87882 electric dryer has no power.


The following link explains how to properly install a power cord to an electric dryer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r793520-3_prong_4_prong_power_cord_conversion

The primary difference between the three-wire and four-wire configuration is how the Neutral and Ground wires are terminated.

In a 3-wire configuration these two wires are terminated together at the terminal block (usually via a grounding strap).

In a 4-wire configuration these two wires are independent of each other. DO NOT terminate these two wires together if using a 4-prong plug. Neutral (WHITE) is terminated at the terminal block. Ground will be terminated on the equipment cabinet somewhere (usually by a ground lug).

NOTE: If your home currently uses a 4-wire outlet, you are required to use a 4-wire plug to be within the National Electric Code (NEC) standards. In addition, if the wires on the power cord or terminal block are not color coded, the outer two wires are your HOT leads. The middle wire is Neutral.

If you have any questions about this repair, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Same dryer but I need to switch to a 4 prong cord.Please help!


WARNING! I believe you want to replace a 110V-120V plug with a 220V. Don't do it until you know for sure. Sounds dangerous! Not an expert, just some free advice from a novice.

Remove the ground strap from the middle terminal block in the dryer. Attach the white wire to this terminal. Take the green wire and attach it to the frame of the dryer. Attach the red wire to the right hand terminal, and the black wire to the left side terminal.
