Would like to know if I can splice another power plug and attache it to my original cord for my whirlpool washer
Answer Hello Anne,
You would not want to splice a power cord to the orignal wiring for your unit. You would want to replace the power cord 285800 with a manufacturers power cord.
How do you change from a 4 prong cord to a 3 prong cord?
Answer Hello Bill. TJ5654 is the 3 wire cord for the unit. You will remove the old 4 wire cord from the dryer. Then when installing the 3 wire cord, the center wire needs to go on the center terminal of the terminal block. It does not matter which wire on the out side goes to which terminal on the terminal block, as long as they are not on the center and that each wire goes to a single post of the block. Both post are 120 volts.
