Electrical Connection
To properly install your laundry center, you must determine the
type of electrical connection you will be using and follow the
provided for it here.
If local codes do not permit the connection of a cabinet
ground connector to the neutral wire, see "Optional 3-wire
This laundry center 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.
Use a 4-wire conductor
cord when the laundry center 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:
Dryer power supply cord must be:
Rated 120/240 volt minimum
30 amp
Type SRD or SRDT
At least 5 ft (1.52 m) 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. The 4-wire power supply
cord 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 cover.
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. The 3-wire power supply
cord, must have 3, No.-10 copper wires and match a 3-wire
receptacle of NEMA Type 10-30R.
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 5 ft (1.52 m) long.
For a grounded, cord-connected
This washer/dryer
must be grounded. In the event of malfunc-
tion or breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of electric
shock by providing a path of least resistance for electric
current. This washer/dryer
uses 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
grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
For a permanently connected washer/dryer:
This washer/dryer
must be connected to a grounded metal,
permanent wiring system, or an equipment-grounding
ductor must be run with the circuit conductors and connected
to the equipment-grounding
terminal or lead on the
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 washer/dryer
is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug on the power
supply cord: if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet in-
stalled by a qualified electrician.
