Electrical Connection

To properly install your dryer, you must determine the type
of electrical connection you will be using and follow the
instructions provided for it here.
This dryer is manufactured ready to install with a 3-wire
electrical supply connection. The neutral ground conductor
is permanently connected to the neutral conductor (white
wire) within the dryer. If the dryer is installed with a 4-wire
electrical supply connection, the neutral ground conductor
must be removed from the external ground connector (green
screw), and secured under the neutral terminal (center or
white wire) of the terminal block. When the neutral ground
conductor is secured under the neutral terminal (center or
white wire) of the terminal block, the dryer cabinet is isolated
from the neutral conductor.
If local codes do not permit the connection of a neutral
ground wire to the neutral wire, see "Optional 3-wire
connection" section.
A 4-wire power supply connection must be used when the
appliance is installed in a location where grounding through
the neutral conductor is prohibited. Grounding through the
neutral is prohibited for (1) new branch-circuit installations
and (2) areas where local codes prohibit grounding through
the neutral conductor.
