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.
If local codes do not permit the connection of a cabinet
ground connector to the neutral wire, see "Direct Wire or
Power Supply Cord."
This dryer is manufactured with a 3-wire, cabinet-ground
conductor connected to the NEUTRAL (white or center wire)
of the wiring harness at the terminal block. Do not have a fuse
in the neutral or grounding circuit.
Use a 4-wire conductor cord when the dryer is installed in a
mobile home or an area where local codes do not permit
grounding through the neutral.
