Question about Maytag Performa PAV3200
The cord that was on the Maytag Performa Model 2300 had a three prong cord. The dryer that we are replacing had a four prong cord, the same red, white and black cord as the three prong cord, with an extra green cord. Can the cords be switched?
Yes, these cords can easily be switched. When you remove the three prong cord from the terminal block in the rear of the unit, you will wire the four prong in the same way. Black and red go to the outside terminals, white to the middle terminal, and the green wire goes to the cabinet or ground screw on the outside (usually, there is a greenish looking bolt around the terminal block door area for this to go). The only difference in a 3 and 4 prong configuration is the extra ground (green) wire. Good luck and let me know if you need further information.
