Too many prongs on dryer power cord???

Do not just swap out the cord on the dryer. It has 4 prongs for a reason.

You will need to call a licensed electrician to change your outlet for the different service.

Change fr 3 prongs to 4

They wire in the same except the green wire will go to a ground screw which should be right in the same area with a green color to it. If no ground screw, hook the green together with the white (center) wire. Hope this helps!

I just purchased a new home and the pigtail of my Amana dryer is different than the electrical outlet and the dryer does not have a schematic to install a new 4 wire pigtail. Is there an adapter to change...

There are no adapters. But a dryer will accept a 3 prong or 4 prong cord. The extra green wire just needs to be connected to any screw on the dryer casing. Some newer dryers have a screw there for it..or u can just use the closest screw avalable......usually the screw for the cover works good.

Kenmore stackable unit

Yes, you can use any safety 4-prong as long as it is a dryer cord rated at 220V.

Dryer electric cord

The national electrical code requires the installation of a four wire system for ALL 240 volt equipment. He will be putting in a four wire dryer receptacle. The pigtail you'll need will be a standard four wire pigtail. The way it is connected is: the red and black go to the two outermost terminals, the white goes to the center terminal and the green goes to a good chassis ground point. If there is a jumper strap from the center terminal to the chassis ground point it must be removed.
