Change maytag 4 prong dryer to 3 prong


UNPLUG dryer, the three pron cord just dosn\'t have the green ground wire that goes to the cabinet screw.

Remove 4 wire cord.replace with 3 wire cord, as long as you get the white wire on the middle screw you will be fine.

Can you change a four prong pigtail with a three prong pigtail on a whirlpool duet dryer


Yes, you surely can!
Here's how.
When you open up the back of the machine where the electric cord attaches, you will see a row of 3 screws/bolts.
Your 4 wire cord has the black wire going to one of those screw/bolts. That is a HOT connection.
Your cord also has a red wire attached to a screw/bolt. It too is HOT.
These two hot connections are the outside two of the row of three screws/bolts.
The one in the middle is a ground wire, and is white.
The other, the fourth wire, usually blue or green, it is attached directly to the sheet metal of the dryer itself.
It too is ground..

Now, the 3 wire cord is not color coded, it is "position" coded.
The two outside wires go to the outside (in the row of 3) screw/bolts of the dryer. the middle wire is hooked to the middle ground screw.
It doesn't matter whether the outside wires go to the right screw or the left screw, but never to the middle screw.
By the same token, never hook the middle wire to an outside screw/bolt.
You will have no fourth wire going to the sheet metal.
Be blessed.

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.

I need to change the dryer power cord on my Amana NDE6800AYW dryer. The current cord is a 4 prong with four wires that are black, red, green, and white. I need a 3 prong plug and I got a cord a Home...


The two wires on either side of the power cord are your HOT leads. They are the voltage carrying conductors. These two wires will connect to the terminal block on the RED and BLACK wires. The middle wire is NEUTRAL and goes to the WHITE wire at the terminal block. Now...with a 3-wire configuration you will need to connect a grounding strap to the neutral wire and ground it to the grounding lug of the appliance. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r793520-3_prong_4_prong_power_cord_conversion

The main difference between 3 and 4 wire configuration is how the neutral and ground wires are installed. In a four wire configuration these two are independent of each other. In a 3 wire configuration ground and neutral are connected together.

If you have any questions about this repair, please ask me. I hope this helps you.

Power cord hook up


Hi Jay
Middle terminal is White and goes to the "L" shaped prong
Red and Black go to the Flat prongs (Doesn't matter which)
Round prong to cabinet Ground.
There may be a strap from the White lug to the cabinet. This must be removed for the 4 prong plug arrangment.

Changing from 3 to 4 wire hookup on a electric dryer:
Power cord help for 3 & 4 prong dryer cords 
This is an example of a three wire connection dryer cord hookup. Notice that there is a ground strap connected from the common center terminal to the frame of the terminal block. Place the center wire of the cord on the center terminal [ one with the ground ******** it ] and the other two wires will be placed on the outer terminals and it doesn't matter which wire goes right or left. Get the center wire of the cord right and you are in business. 
This is an example of the 4 wire dryer cord hookup. Notice that the ground strap has been removed from the terminal block frame and folded back onto the center terminal for storage. You can see the colors of the other hookups. TIP: White always to the middle.
