If using a power supply cord:
Dryer power supply cord must be:
120/240 volt minimum
30 amp
Type SRD or SRDT
At least 4 ft (122 cm) long
The wires that connect to the dryer must end in ring terminals or
spade terminals with upturned ends.
If your outlet looks like this:
4-wire receptacle (14-30R)
Then choose a 4-wire power supply cord with ring or spade
terminals and UL approved strain relief.
If your outlet looks like this:
3-wire receptacle (10-30R)
Then choose a 3-wire power supply cord with ring or spade
terminals and UL approved strain relief.
If connecting by direct wire:
Power supply cable must match power supply (4-wire or 3-wire)
and be:
Flexible armored or non-metallic sheathed copper cable (with
ground wire). All current-carrying wires must be insulated.
10 gauge solid copper wire (Do not use aluminum.)
At least 4 ft (122 cm) long
For a grounded, cord-connected dryer:
This dryer 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. This
dryer is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding
conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged
into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and ground-
ed in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
For a permanently connected dryer:
This dryer 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 equip-
ment-grounding terminal or lead on the dryer.
Improper connection of the equipment-
grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or service representative or
personnel if you are in doubt as to whether the dryer is proper-
ly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the dryer: if
it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a
qualified electrician.
