Is this dryer electric or gas heated...if electric...did you wire it properly...electric dryers use 220 VAC and have a very large plug on them...usually there is a black, red. white, and green wire...the white is neutral, the green is ground and the red,black are the L1 and L2 hot leads...these need to be wired to the 2 hot terminals in order for the dryer to function properly

Since moving the light will come on in the tumbler but the power won't turn on. Any idea what the problem is?


If you installed the power cord I am guessing this is a 240 volt electric dryer. Electric dryer terminal blocks have 3 screws in a straight line. The center is neutral with a hot line on each side. The hot lines don't matter which is on the right or left. Now if you have the big flat power cord, the 3 wires are already in line for you. the center is neutral and the 2 hot lines are on the outsides. Install all wire in a straight line. If you have a big round power cord it may have 4 wires inside that are usually color coded. White is Neutral (center screw). green is a secondary ground and can be attached to any screw going into the dryer body. That should leave 2 more wires--red and black, These are your hot lines. put one color on each side of the neutral screw. Doesn't matter if red is on right and black on left side or if you reverse those 2 colors. It should still work properly.

Need to change the power corrd to a 4 prong from the 3 prong but the 3 prong cable isnt color coordinated, how do I hook up the new power cord?


The new cord has a green ground wire; two hot wires, which are black and red; and a white neutral wire. Attach the neutral to the middle connector and the two hot wires to either end of the terminal.
In order to safely ground the machine the green ground wire must be securely connected to the dryer frame. There may be a screw on the frame where you can attach the ground.

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

We recently purchased a GE dryer and were told it is electric or gas operated, the dryer runs but is not heating up. i think it might be because it isnt getting enough electricitry, but i cant get the back...


If your dryer came with a regular grounded cord attached, it is a gas dryer, and you will have to hook up a gas line to the 3/8 pipe nipple at the lower left corner (when viewed from behind). The 4 prong power cord is only used for electric only models. If still unsure, post the model number from the sticker inside the door of the dryer.

Hot leg of power supply cord melted


This is almost positively caused by a poor electrical connection. If the connections at the cord to the dryer are good and tight, check the receptacle that the cord plugs into. Turn the breaker off, remove cover or receptacle, and tighten all connections. If necessary, replace the dryer receptacle along with installing a new cord.

Trying to install 3 way cord with a 4 way replacement cord. I have disconnected all wires and put them back. My question is concerning the white wire.The wires that are already connected to the dryer red,...


In a three wire system you have 2 hot wires (black and red) and a neutral (white). the ground is connected to the neutral at the dryer. In a 4 wire system you have the 2 hot wires, neutral, and a ground. (green). The ground is connected with the neutral at the circuit panel. The hot wires at the dryer should be on the outside scres, the neutral should be in the center and the ground should be under the green screw. *****. .

Electric cord


What you should get is a new 4 wire cord. It is way less complicated than trying to change out the wall receptacle.
On a 4 wire dryer cord you have White(common) in the middle. Red and Black are hot and go on either side of white. If you really want to make it look good you can put red to red on the terminal and black to black but you don't have to. Some dryers may not have those color hot wires. Green hooks to the chassis with a green screw or any screw connected directly to the frame.
