Level
A three-wire or four-wire, single phase 120!240-volt,
60-Hz., AC-only, electrical supply is required on a
separate 30-ampere circuit, fused on both sides of the
line. A time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended.
This dryer is manufactured with the 3-wire, flame-ground-
ing conductor connected to the NEUTRAL (center) of the
wiring harness of the terminal block. Do not have a fuse
in the neutral or grounding circuit.
Use a 4-conductor cord when the dryer is installed in a
mobile home or an area where local codes do not permit
grounding through the neutral.
Fire Hazard

cord.
Use a UL approved strain relief.
Disconnect power before making electrical
connections.
Connect neutral wire (white or center wire) to center
terminal (silver).
Ground wire (green or bare wire) must be connected
to green ground connector.

electrical shock.

120/240-volt minimum, 30-ampere, dryer power supply
cord kit (pigtail). Power supply cord should be type SRD
or SRDT and be at least four feet long. The wires that
