I have a whirlpool dryer model #LER5636EQ3 which the power cord was missing upon aquiring it, the wall socket in my laundry room is a 50amp, so I need to know if a 50amp power cord would be a proper...

The recommended power cord is a 30 amp 3- or 4- wire cable. A 50 A cord could cause a problem by allowing a surge to the dryer motor and damage the dryer or start a fire. There are 30A to 50A adapters (see RV and boat supply vendors). The installation instructions for the LER5636EQ3 are available here: . See page 5 of the PDF.

Note: the 50A outlet has a 50A circuit breaker protecting it. If you swap the outlet to a 30A outlet, you will also need to replace the breaker with a 30A one.

I hope this helps.

I am installing a 30 amp cord on my Whirlpool dryer. The model number is WED5100VQ. I am having a problem finding the ground wire in which to ground the dryer because it only has a white wire coming from...

On whirlpool (all manufacture) dryers the ground wire is linked to the center terminal with the white wire and attaches to the cabinet grounding all metal on dryer since on panel attaches to the next making the entire cabinet have continuty through the neutral/ground wire.
When connecting 3 wire cord connect the two outside wires to red/black on cord block and center wire to white/center terminal connection on block.
For a 4 wire cord red to red black to black white to white and the green to rear of cabinet/any panel near block

After replacing our 3 prong cord with a 4 prong cord, it no longer works. Have we fried the control panel?

First, go back and check the power cord configuration. There is a difference between how a 3 and 4 prong power cord is connected. Copy and paste the following link to your browser:

If you connected the power cord wrong, you may have simply blown the thermal fuse. This is a small plastic looking component (usually white in color) with two wires attached to it. Its located on the air blower housing inside the dryer.
If the model number is correct, you can access the thermal fuse by following these steps:
1. Remove the lower toe panel directly below the door, by locating the screws under the bottom front edge. You can gain better access to the screws by propping up the two front feet of the dryer (a 2 x 4 works well for this).
2. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off.
The thermal fuse should be located on the air blower housing directly below the drum in the front. A resistance check should read something close to zero ohms (short) if good. If you have no continuity, the fuse is blown.
NOTE: Make sure you have the dryer UNPLUGGED and the wires disconnected from the fuse, when taking resistance checks.
If you have questions, or need further assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

I just got a used kenmore model number 110 88752792 stackable washer and dryer. it had a 4 prong cord.I live in a travel trailer, it has a 24 inch wide space for a stackable washer and dryer that the 110...

You will need to get 230v to allow the dryer to work if your service panel has 230 you will need to get a 30 amp two pole breaker and run 3 wire #8 in size. Then get the socket and plug for the dryer. The 110 in the model number simply means made by whirlpool and is a pretty good machine but requires 230 volts to dry with heat.

Hoover 0910dryer not heating. element replaced not long ago

Hi, the possible causes are: Possible Causes: The wall receptacle, power cord (plug) and electrical supply must be in good condition and wired correctly for the dryer to heat.
  • Supply Issue - Loose or missing connection on supply wire from circuit breaker.
  • Plug Issue - Loose or missing connection in the wall. Defective, worn or damaged wall plug.
  • Cord Issue - Loose, missing or incorrect connection of the power cord to the dryer terminals.
If gas dryer and does not heat, Gas Dryer heats with a gas burner, make sure the gas supply line valve is open.
Also, for electric dryer,
Electric dryers require two 30 amp breakers or fuses in the house electrical box to run and heat. If one breaker is tripped or one fuse is blown, the motor, the timer and lights can work but the dryer will not heat.

What size breaker is reommended for electric dryer 220V?

Electric dryer uses a double pole 30 Amp breaker. Check for a loose electrical connection. Check that the screws holding the wires on the breaker itself are tight. Next, check the screws for the ground / neutral in the breaker box. Next, check all the connections in the dryer recepticle (where the dryer cord plugs into the wall) Finally, check the connections where the cord connects onto the dryer. If all connections listed were good tight connections, replace breaker.

Do i use 30 amp double pole breaker

Hello manofpeace,
Many standard electric dryers run off a 30A double pole breaker. You need to make sure the wiring to your receptacle is sized accordingly and the pigtail power cord from your dryer is of the correct size ( meaning rated for 30Amps or more)...

I will try this again i don't think i posted it properly.
On the power cord where it connectes to the dryer make sure the red and black wire goes to the outside screws (L1& L2) the white goes in the middle and the green goes to the dryer cabinet.
If you have the red or black going to the middle one it will trip the breaker.

Kenmore dryer swap pwr cord from a 4 to a 3 prong

Remove the cover plate just above where the cord goes in (1/4" screw) Loosen all 4 screws (3 brass ones and a green one) and see if the connectors will come off. (this is for a "fork" type connector) if the connectors won't come off, you have a "loop type connector in which case you will need to remove all the screws completely. BE CAREFUL! If you drop one inside the machine, you will have to dis-assemble it. Now, re-install/ tighten down the green screw. (If the green screw wasn't used, the unit wasn't installed correctly at the time of install). Loosen the screws on the clamp where the power cord comes into the washer. (again, they may be missing do to improper install). Now, install you three prong cord in reverse. (The cords are flat so you can't mix the wires up on most models of cords) Make sure to put the clamp (strain relife) on that was supplied with your new cord.
