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 neutral
ground wire to the neutral wire, see "Optional 3-wire
connection" section.
This dryer is manufactured ready to install with a 3-wire
electrical supply connection. The neutral ground wire 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 wire must be removed
from the external ground connector screw (green screw), and
secured under the neutral terminal (center or white wire) of
the terminal block. When the neutral ground wire is secured
under the neutral terminal (center or white wire) of the terminal
block, the dryer cabinet is isolated from the neutral conductor.
A 4-wire power supply connection must be used when the
dryer 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, (2) mobile
homes, (3) recreational vehicles, and (4) areas where local
codes prohibit grounding through the neutral conductors.
If using a power supply cord:
Use a UL listed power supply cord kit marked for use with
clothes dryers. The kit should contain:
A UL listed 30-amp power supply cord, rated 120/240 volt
minimum. The cord should be type SRD or SRDT and be
at least 4 ft. (1.22 m) long. The wires that connect to the
dryer must end in ring terminals or spade terminals with
upturned ends.
A UL listed strain relief.
If your outlet looks like this:
Then choose a 4-wire power supply cord
with ring or spade terminals and UL listed
strain relief. The 4-wire power supply cord,
at least 4 ft. (1.22 m) long, must have
4 10-gauge solid copper wires and match
a 4-wire receptacle of NEMA Type 14-30 R.
4-wire receptacle
The ground wire (ground conductor) may be
(14-30R)
either green or bare. The neutral conductor
must be identified by a white cover.
If your outlet looks like this:
Then choose a 3-wire power supply cord with
ring or spade terminals and UL listed strain
relief. The 3-wire power supply cord, at least
4 ft. (1.22 m) long, must have 3 10-gauge solid
copper wires and match a 3-wire receptacle of
NEMA Type 10-30R.
3-wire receptacle
(10-30R)
choose a standard power supply cord connector:
Flanged spade
connectors
Ring connectors
If connecting by direct wire:
Power supply cable must match power supply (4-wire or 3-wire)
and be:
Flexible armored cable or nonmetallic sheathed copper cable
(with ground wire), covered with flexible metallic conduit. All
current-carrying wires must be insulated.
10-gauge solid copper wire (do not use aluminum).
At least 5 ft. (1.52 m) long.
