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 another cord to put on dryer as my home does not have the large outlet; only a 3 prong outlet. Can this dryer have a new cord put on?


Yes. Putting on a new cord is simple. There is a plate covering the cord that is on there now. Remove the two or three philips screws holding it on. Get a new cord at an appliance store. Use a nut driver to detach the old cord. Hook up the new cord with the colored prongs in the same places as the old. The green will be the one that is missing. Replace the green screw so it is not lost. Be sure to install the cord protector so the sharp edge does not slice through your new cord. Good luck.

My power cord does not fit the electrical outlet in my new apartment _ maytag Neptune electric dryer. Is there an adapter to change the cord from 3 prong to 4 prong


You need to go to a local hardware store and buy a new cord. There is an adapter but it is more exspensive than the cord and I have seen problems with them overheating because of the fine dust getting in them. Your cord is easy to replace there is a access panel that is held on by a screw where the cord goes into the machine. You will need to remove the screws holding the electric wires there will be 3 on your dryer. The 4 wire cord has an extra ground. You can put this under the screw that holds the access panel on. The two outside wire connectors on your dryer are the hot wires each carries 110v the center wire is the neutral wire and also acts as a ground on a 3 wire dryer. The 4th wire is an ground for house trailers and some areas require them as a seperate ground from the neutral. I hope this helps

How to change power cord on dryer


Shut off the power to the dryer and just remove the 3 or 4 wires from their terminals. Put the new cord on the same way you took the old one off. The white wire is neutral, the green is ground and the other two (hot) don't matter which terminal they go onto.

I moved to a house with a three prong outlet for my Frigidare electric dryer, model number FER341AC0, that has a four prong cord. I bought a new three prong cord but there is no color coding on the dryer...


The three wire goes on the electrical block on the back of your dryer just like the cord is made. If you look at the cord, it's made flat (Most 3 wire cord are made flat, Some are not) The wire in the middle goes in the middle of the block. The two wires to the outside go to the outside of the block. It makes do difference which wire goes on which side as long as the outside wires go to the outside.

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.
