Make electrical connection.
This dryer is manufactured with the
cabinet-ground conductor
connected to the NEUTRAL (center) of
the wiring harness at the terminal
block. If local codes do NOT permit
this type of connection, use "Four-
wire connection" instructions.
For a grounded, cord-connected
appliance —
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS:
This appliance must be grounded. In
the event of malfunction or
breakdown, grounding will reduce
the risk of electric shock by providing
a path of least resistance for electric
current.
If using a power supply cord, the plug
must be plugged into an appropriate
outlet that is properly installed and
grounded in accordance with all
local codes and ordinances.
WARNING - Improper connection of
the equipment-grounding conductor
can result in a risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or
serviceman if you are in doubt as to
whether the appliance is properly
grounded. Do not modify the plug
provided with the appliance - if it will
not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet
installed by a qualified electrician.
For a permanently connected
appliance —
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS:
This appliance must be connected to
a grounded metal, permanent wiring
system; or an equipment-grounding
conductor must be run with the
circuit conductors and connected to
the equipment-grounding terminal or
lead on the appliance.
