For four prong cords the white twine cord goes in the center, the pink on the right, the black on the left. The inexperienced cord cord is going to the case or the outside ground screw. Notice: make certain to disconnect the floor wire or strap that runs from the middle terminal to the case. On this photo (a whirlpool dryer) i have ran the twine that runs from the center terminal, the light green cord, again to itself in preference to reducing it off, just incase i need to put a 3 prong wire back on it some day. The complete motive of this 3 prong / 4 prong aspect is it separates the impartial from the ground.
In the example in the image the dryer would not have coloration designation on the wires, follow course above; if the dryer wire does have colored wires, white is the neutral twine to the middle connector, the crimson and black wires are the new stay wires which connect to the 2 outer connections of the dryer terminal block, take into account the ground strap or inexperienced twine jumper from the middle connector to the dryer frame.

Jim naysium03-thirteen-2006, 03:05 pm i've read approximately how to hook up my dryer to a 4 prong to make it healthy my 4 prong outlet and lucky for me, it sounds such as you men(gals)virtually recognise what you are speaking about! I've a 30-120amp 230v mig welder that came out of the field without a male plug. It most effective has three wires even though and my garage outlet,(wired in 2001 new creation) has a four prong outlet. I have changed 110v light furnishings and brought on extra retailers in my basement, but by no means messed with 220 before. I need to admit that it sort of scares me! :Useless: i would really like to pay attention from you! Thank you!.
