Where the various blocks fit into the plastic holding slots, there are two electrical connections (prongs) and a silver-coated connection in the center of the space. The silver covers in two of the block holders have come off - does this represent a health hazard?

How to wire a plug

In USA, Either the male or female plug connector would be wired the same. Black is hot wire and would connect to the BRASS colored round head screw ( Smallest flat prong or slot ). White is the neutral wire and would connect to the SILVER colored round head screw ( Largest flat prong or slot ). Green is the ground wire and would connect to the GREEN screw ( ONLY HEX shaped screw ). 1) FOR YOUR LIFE SAFETY, ALWAYS USE 3-WIIRE PLUGS WHEN REPAIRING 3-WIRE EXTENSION CORDS! 2) Check the male plug connector. It should have two flat and one rounded prong. The rounded prong is the ground wire connection. If the ground prong is missing, replace the plug. 3) Inspect the outer cover for damage. 4) Do not use cords with damaged outer covers. Taping over the damage is not an adequate repair, for safety, replace the cord.

Unplug the electrical cord of the dryer from the electrical outlet before attempting to fit a new belt on the dryer.

Remove the lint screen from under the lint screen cover and locate the screws that are underneath the cover.

Unfasten the screws with a screwdriver and remove them from the lint filter slot, setting the screws aside.

Place a putty knife between the top and the cabinet on both sides of the dryer near the front, lifting up to dislodge the lid from the plastic clips that hold the top down.

Flip the top back toward the back of the dryer and let it rest against the back wall.

Locate the front kick panel and slide the putty knife just behind both sides of the panel, pulling forward to unfasten the panel from the plastic clips. Move the panel out of the way.

Locate the screws that hold the front panel on the dryer cabinet at the top on the inside of the cabinet. Remove the screws using a screwdriver.

Unfasten the electrical wire connector by hand, pulling it straight out from the back of the front panel. Move the panel out of the way.

Place a couple of wood blocks under the front of the dryer drum to support it while you are removing the old belt. The drum is the cylinder that holds the clothes as they are drying, located just behind the front panels.

Push the idler arm forward just a bit to relieve the tension on the belt, and slide the belt off the idler and motor pulleys. The idler arm is located next to the motor near the back of the dryer and has a pulley on a metal arm with a tension spring attached to it.

Lift the drum up off the blocks just a bit, slide the old belt off of the drum, and take it out of the dryer cabinet.

Hold the drum up just enough to slide the new dryer belt around the drum and fit the belt into the V-slot in the center of the drum, laying the remainder of the belt on the bottom of the cabinet near the idler pulley so you can access it easily.

Loop the end of the belt around the idler pulley and over the motor pulley, pushing back on the idler pulley to release the tension on the belt.

Let the idler pulley move back into place and check the alignment on the belt to verify that it is seated properly on the drum and the pulleys.

Remove the wood blocks from under the drum when the new belt is installed and attach the front kick panel to the dryer cabinet, pressing the panel onto the plastic clips.

Place the front panel over the kick panel and attach the electrical wire connector to the back of the panel by hand, pressing the connector back over the electrical prongs on the back of the panel.

Attach the screws at the top of the front panel on the inside of the cabinet with a screwdriver. Lower the top of the dryer back down over the cabinet.

Press the top of the dryer down over the plastic clips until the lid is secure and fasten the screws on the inside of the lint filter cover.

Slide the lint filter into the lint filter slot and plug the electrical cord of the dryer into the electrical outlet.

I need to change my 3 prong to a 4 prong

Unplug the dryer then remove the terminal block cover and disconnect the 3-prong cord from the dryer. Note that the cord has red , black, and white wires but sometimes the red and black wires are both replaced by same color wire, usually gray and can switch places. There's also a ground strap wire also connected to the center terminal together with the white (neutral) wire.

Get yourself a 4-prong cord and note that it has red, black, white, and green/yellow wires but sometimes, like the 3-pronged one, the red and black wires are both replaced by same color wire, usually gray and can also switch places. All you have to do now is connect the 3 wires in the same manner they are connected as 3-prong cord to the terminal block. The ground strap wire now just need to be connected to the remaining 4th wire, the green/yellow wire instead of the center terminal together with the white (neutral) wire. Reinstall the terminal block cover and it's done.

It can be observed that converting a 3-prong cord to 4-prong cord is merely splitting the neutral line and the ground thereby increasing the number of prongs from 3 to 4 whereas, on the other hand, converting a 4-prong cord to 3-prong cord is merely joining the neutral line (white) and the ground (green/yellow) thereby reducing the number of prongs from 4 to 3.. The links below might enlighten you further on this matter.

Kenmore 700 dryer with a three prong cord is being converted to four prong. Is there a drawing of what wires by color going to the proper screw location?

There's a ground strap wire (green/yellow) attached to the dryer cabinet and connected to the center terminal where the white neutral wire of the power cord is connected. Disconnect this ground strap wire and remove the 3-prong power cord from the terminal block taking note where the wires are connecedt to. Connect the 4-prong power cord in the same way same wire colors of the 3-prong cord are connected to the terminal block. Connect the ground strap wire to the remaining fourth wire (green/yellow). Just do the reverse when converting 4-prong to 3-prong. The link below might enlighten you further on this matter.

Trunk won't shut and motor and switch has been replace what else could it be. It will activate in one direction but not both

You don't have the switch between the metal prongs of the trunk latch. As that latch goes
up or down, it either pulls the switch up or pushes it down. Depending on the way the
switch is set the next time it changes the direction the worm gear moves. You have to disassemble the unit. You'll see a long plastic tube that will lead to the worm gear. It will
be filled with a lot of lube. You'll need to use a long thin screw driver or maybe a coat
hanger wire. You have to manually move the worm gear to raise the latch so that you
can get the switch inside the metal prongs. The first time I did this it took me about 45 minutes
of studying the unit. The second time I replaced the corroded switch it took me about
30 minutes to remember the trick. Fortunately, if you study the various pieces they only
really fit one way. I'm assuming you bought a replacement switch for the one that gets corroded. They cost about $35. I lubed all the electrical connections of the wiring harness with dialetic (?) cream, filled those little holes, and covered with electrical tape. I hope you don't mean you
bought a whole new motor. Hope this helps.

Wire Hayward Super Pump for 115

If you look closely, you should see a small arrow on the black plastic piece on the terminal block(jumper). That arrow lines up with either the 115 or 230 mark on the white terminal board. Make sure it is aligned with the 115.

Then put you two line wires on. It does not matter which wire goes to line 1 and line 2, just be sure you DO NOT put them both on the same terminal. A plastic divider usually seperates the two line connection terminals.

3 prong to 4 prong cord

the bare wires are not a good thing when it comes to electric, you should either remove the plug and restrip the wires to fit or consult a pro to do this for you

I own an Amana Heavy Duty dryer, model # NDE880AYW, and I'm trying to change a three prong cord for a four prong cord. I know nothing about electricals so I need help at a very elementary level. I have...

First off. Do any and all electrical connections with the PLUG detached from the wall receptacle.. The Green Wire is earth ground and should be connected to the nearest Chassis or Frame terminal.. There should be one near the terminal block for the two power ( red & black) and one neutral ( white).. It's OK to double up the green wire with other green wires.. so your answer is YES.. connect it to the nearest Green wire terminal.. This green wire provides protection to you and anyone else from getting electrocuted by bonding the frame/chassis as well as other sheet metal parts to earth ground.. Hope that helps...
