Question about Dryers
The procedure is the same for most dryers. Follow your old cord to where it goes inside your machine. Does it have a clamp around the area where it enters? If so remove the clamp. Right abover the hole where it enters, there should be a plate. Remove the plate and you should see 3 brass colored screws. Loosen the screws. Depending on your manufacturing of your dryer the 4th (green) wire will either be on top of the white one or be secured by a green screw on the cabinet. If it secured to the cabinet, loosen the crew, remove the green wire, and re-tighten the screw. Now your 3 wire cord should be gray (these are availible from more appliance parts stores and hardware stores around town). Feed this cord through the hole. The 3 wire cord is flat so putting the wires on wrong is more difficult. Just make sure the wires do not cross and the cord stays flat. Most replacement cords come with these instructions and pictures too.
