The power cord for the dryer is a 4 prong and the wall outlet is a 3 prong. Please tell what steps I must take in changing the 4 prong power cord to a 3 prong because I live in an apartment complex. I need to know if I would be able to use my dryer and not cause any harm to others. I thank you in advance.
To change the dryer cord you will access the terminal block. There will be a grounding strap on the center terminal that will connect from the center terminal to where the ground wire on the 4 wire cord is connected. The center wire of the 3 prong wire will go to the center post and the other 2 on the outer posts.

Hi, My dryer has a 240V power cord and my wall pulg is a 250V can I buy a 250V cord and put it on my dryer and still be able to use it safely?
Answer Hello Wendell. In America, the outlet should read 244 volts and you will use a 240 volt cord. If the voltage is 250 or higher, you need an electrican to repair the voltage issue to use the 240 volt dryer.

How do I change and connect the electrical power cord?
Answer Hello Mera. Remove the cover from the back of the terminal block. The two outside wires go to the outside screws on the terminal block, and the wire in the middle of the cord TJ5654 goes to the middle of the terminal block.
This model does not come with and a pigtail electrical connection cord. Can you help me select the correct cord? I realize that most dryers come with a universal connecion plug in however I don't know if it is a three or four wire internal electrical connection?
Answer Hello David. You will need to look at the outlet you are plugging the dryer into. If there are three places in the outlet, then you will use a three wire. If there are 4 places in the outlet, you will use the 4 wire. This is the reason dryers and ranges do not come with cords. Hope this helps.
