Wiring a 3 prong neptune to a 4 prong new outlet

I have a maytag neptune-dont have model number in front of me, but I think the dryer is around 3-4 yrs old. It has a 3 prong cord on it, and my new place has a 4 prong receptacle. I already wired it the way my electrician told me, and I have now blown the circuit board, and have to buy a new one. What is the correct way to wire the new cord on. Thanks

    What if there's already a green wire attached from inside the washer? Do I connect the green wire from my 4 prong on top of that other green wire? Mine is an older Whirlpool dryer.

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

Switching the cord on maytag neptune dryer


dre, sounds like you moved and the dryer electrical outlet is only 3 pronged, This tells me that the dryer will be grounded through the neutral leg. Just hook up the cord and you should be fine. Make sure the white is in the center. Catriver.
