Question about Dryers
You need a 30amp double pole breaker and be certain that the fuse box is a grounded box, so that your white neutral wire is separated from the green ground wire.
On the dryer your wiring should be as follows:
Red.....left or right terminal
Black...Left or right terminal, (or remaining end terminal)
Green: Attached to dryer frame or chassis terminal
In the fuse box:
Black to 1 breaker terminal
Red to other breaker terminal
White to neutral terminals in the box
Green to the ground terminals in the box
If you have no green or ground terminals in the box, then the green wire at the dryer should be connected to an active ground source, i.e., a copper water line or preferrably a copper ground rod.
