Electrical
connection
This dryer is manufactured with the cabinet-ground
conductor connected to the NEUTRAL (center) of
the wiring harness at the terminal block. If local
codes do NOT permit this type of connection, use
"Four-wire connection" instructions.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS: This appliance 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.
If using a power supply cord, the plug must be plugged
into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and
grounded in accordance with all local codes and
ordinances.
WARNING - Improper connection of the equipment-
grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric
shock. Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman
if you are in doubt as to whether the appliance is
properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided
with the appliance - if it will not fit the outlet, have a
proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
If using a direct wire connection, this appliance 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
equipment-grounding terminal or lead on the appliance.
If the house has aluminum wiring, follow the procedure
below: a) Connect a section of 8 gauge solid copper
wire to the connector block. b) Connect the aluminum
wiring to the added section of copper wire using special
connectors designed and Underwriters Laboratories
Listed for joining copper to aluminum. Follow the
electrical connector manufacturer's recommended
procedure. c) Aluminum/copper connection must
conform with local codes and industry-accepted wiring
practices.
