    Thanks for quick responce! It is 3 wire set up all the way throughout. It is hooked up just as shown. If tested in between black and white post there is no light on tester. If I disconnect the black wire it tested 110 volts between black wire and white post, or between the black wire and the screw post it came from, or between black wire and the chassie,Thanks again, John

    I'm baffled If I test the dryer breaker in fusebox it test OK for110 volts on each side of the 220 breaker. But when I plug in the dryer in the black side test test negitive. The plug test ok 110 each side aginst the ground. I will get a tester for the 220 test.

    i just need to know a few things:

    • are you trying to connect a 4 wire (4 prong cord) or a 3 wire?

    • when you test the outlet, are you using the neutral or ground (if it is a four wire config)

    • did you connect the neutral to the ground and test it like i requested in the premium solution, if so did it make a difference?

Make sure the green wire is connected like in the picture. this connects directly to the neutral, if it is disconnected when you connect a 3 wire cord then this problem you are having will happen.

    ok when you test it with the neutral still attached to the machine you may be getting a beedback thru the case or neutral and it is tricking you into thinking it is getting the 110v. i dont think that the problem is in the machine.

    this is what i suggest you do.

    • unplug the dryer completely.

    • test the outlet as shown in the picture

    • you must get these readings for the dryer to work.

    the blue arrows show where to test across. it works best with a digital voltage meter ($15 at walmart)

    if possible, test it at the outlet itself. it is more likely that the outlet is bad, than the breaker. if your meter prongs are not long enough to reach inside then take off the cover using the screw in the center of the outlet (turn the breaker off while removing the cover)

What colors on electrical cord go with what screw on dryer?

The green is ground and usually connects to the metal side of the dryer.
The white is neutral and connects to the white center post. The black and red on the cord are both 110vt hot lines and connect to the posts on each end. So black to black and red to black/brown should be ok.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Electric dryers aren't very complicated. Here are some common symptoms that you may experience with your dryer:

There's an error code on the digital display

It doesn't work at all
There's no heat
It won't tumble
Drying is too slow
It overheats
It seems to run forever
It's noisy
It won't start
The light doesn't work
It blows fuses or trips the circuit breaker
My clothes smell bad!
My clothes are marked or torn

My Gibson dryer has a three prong plug on it.I

The National Electrical Code began requiring 4-prong receptacles for 220-volt residential circuits in 2000, but it doesn't prohibit you from using your older dryer with a 3-prong cord. Instead, it allows you to change the cord so that the dryer can be plugged into a modern receptacle, and the procedure isn't very complicated. Four-prong dryer cords, or pigtails, are available at hardware and electrical supply stores, and usually cost less than $20. To make the switch, you'll need a green ground screw to attach to the dryer body so the machine can be grounded by the ground wire.

1 Unplug the dryer and move it to an accessible spot. Unscrew the plate on the back that covers the electrical terminal with a screwdriver. You'll find the cover on the back of the dryer near the bottom of the machine at the point where the cord exits.
2 Loosen the three terminal screws holding the cord. Before you remove them and take off the cord, note the colors of the screws and the wires attached to them. The screws holding the black and red wires are brass and the one holding the white wire is silver.
3 Remove the ground strap from the silver terminal. It may be a small metal plate or a length of wire connecting the terminal to the body of the dryer. You may be able to pull it out with pliers, or you may have to loosen a screw to remove it. Its function was to ground the dryer, and that function will now be served by the ground wire on the new pigtail.
4 Insert the brass terminal screws into the ring lugs attached to the red and black wires on a replacement pigtail and the silver screw into the ring lug on the white wire. Drive the screws into the same slots from which you removed them and tighten them securely with a screwdriver.
5 Drill a 1/4-inch hole in the body of the dryer within reach of the fourth wire in the pigtail, which is green. Insert a green ground screw through the ring lug on the end of that wire, drive the screw into the hole and tighten it securely.
6 Feed the cord through the notch on the terminal cover plate and screw the cover plate to the back of the dryer.

Things You Will Need
  • Screwdriver
  • Pliers
  • Drill
  • 1/4-inch drill bit
  • Ground screw
  • 4-prong pigtail

  • There usually isn't room behind the cover plate to install the ground screw. If not, it's acceptable to attach the screw to the back of the dryer outside the plate.
  • Check the grounding with a multimeter before you plug in the dryer. Set the meter to ohms, touch one lead to the dryer body and touch the other lead to the ground prong on the plug. The meter should show less than 10 ohms of resistance.

Why would my dryer cord burn in two

Well, it didn't just happen.
Here we go.
Someone, (You'll do nicely) needs to find a test meter and begin checking electrical things.
A volt-ohm meter or a multi-meter is what you are looking for.
You will want to unplug the machine, and start with the wall or floor socket, whatever.
If you have a 3 pronged plug, the two slanted straight slots should each show 110 volts.
The "L" shaped hole should show a ground.
If either of these does not read right, there is a problem between the plug and the house/apartment power source.
If you have a 4 pronged plug, the round lug on the plug is also a ground, and it should show ground on the meter.
It is VERY important that each hole in the plug reads correctly.
otherwise a fire could happen.
If all shows good, inspect the dryer where the wire hooks to it.
There are 3 screws with nuts on them in a row.
The center nut/screw should be grounded, the two outside nut/screws should be 110volts each.
If there is a 4th wire, it should go to the green ground wire.

NOTE: Very often older dryers or dryers that have been moved from their new installation can have the "holder" missing.
The holder is a metal clamp that holds the dryer wire from rubbing on the sharp metal edge where it goes into the attachment area of the dryer.
A hardware store can show you what they look like.
I can say they are usually metal, they have a hole in them for the dryer cord, and they have a clamping device with two screws to pinch the cord and hold it from moving.
I hope this helps.
Be blessed

My dryer's power cord has 4 prongs, my wall socket has 3 holes, can I change the power cord, or is there an adapter to change from 4 to 3 pronges.

Un screw the 2 hex screws from the back of the dryer where the cord goes in.

There will be 3 screws that connect the cord to the dryer, loosen or remove them to remove the 4 prong cord.

A hardware store will carry the 3 prong cord you need, tell them it is for a dryer.

Re-connect the 3 prong cord to the dryer.

Plug in and test after you have installed the new cord.

My Whrilpool Dryer only makes a click sound when turned on with the door close. Any suggestion?

Make sure the door actuator is showing (door switch stub) that the door pushes when closing . If it's ok , then replace the thermal fuse ( a small whute piece with 2 wires connected .)

If the dryer has a 4 wire cord and you need a 3 wire cord, you should have a jumper, or little metal strip, that came with the dryer. You will connect this jumper between the green ground screw that attaches to the frame and the screw where you white neutral wire lands on the terminal block.

If the dryer is 4 wire and you need it four wire, you simply connect the white to the neutral screw, the black to one of your hot screws, the red to your other hot screw and you green to the green screw connected to your frame. If there is a piece of metal, "jumper" connected from the neutral or white screw and the green screw in the frame you will need to remove this.

Write back if you need clarification.
