It is your responsibility
To contact a qualified electrical installer.
To be sure that the electrical connection is adequate and in
conformance with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA
70-latest edition and all local codes and ordinances.
The National Electric Code requires a 4-wire power supply

To supply the required 3 or 4 wire, single phase, 120/240-volt,
60-Hz., AC-only electrical supply (or 3 or 4 wire, 120/208-volt
electrical supply, if specified on the serial/rating plate) on a
separate 30-amp circuit, fused on both sides of the line. A
time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended. Connect
to an individual branch circuit. Do not have a fuse in the
neutral or grounding circuit.

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.
This dryer is manufactured ready to install with a 3-wire
electrical supply connection. The green cabinet-grounding
conductor 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 green cabinet-
grounding conductor must be removed from the external
ground connector (green screw), and secured under the
neutral terminal (center or white wire) of the terminal block.
When the green cabinet-grounding conductor is secured
under the neutral terminal (center or white wire) of the
terminal block, the dryer cabinet is isolated from the neutral
(22.9 cm)
If local codes do not permit the connection of a cabinet
ground connector to the neutral wire, see "Optional 3-wire
connection" section.
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.

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
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
14-30R. The ground wire (ground conductor) may be either green
or bare. The neutral conductor must be identified by a white
If your outlet looks like this:
Then choose a 3-wire power supply cord with ring or spade
