ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
It is your responsibility:
If your outlet looks like this:
n To contact a qualified electrical installer.
n To be sue that the electrical connection is adequate and in
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 four 10-gauge
copper wires and match a 4-wire receptacle of
4-wire receptacle NEMA Type 14-30R. The ground wire (ground
(14-30R)
conductor) may be either green or bare.
The neutral conductor must be identified by a
white cover.
conformance with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA
70 - latest edition and all local codes and ordinances.
The National Electrical Code requires a 4-wire power supply
connection for homes built after 1996, dryer circuits involved
in remodeling after 1996, and all mobile home installations.
A copy of the above code standards can be obtained from:
National Fire Protection Association, One Batterymarch Park,
Quincy, MA 02269.
n 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.
Connect to an individual branch circuit. Do not have a fuse in
the neutral or grounding circuit.
n Do not use an extension cord.
n If codes permit and a separate ground wire is used, it is
recommended that a qualified electrician determine that the
ground path is adequate.
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.
n This dryer is manufactured ready to install with a 3-wire
electrical supply connection. The neutral ground 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 neutral ground 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 neutral ground conductor
is secured under the neutral terminal (center or white wire)
of the terminal block, the dryer cabinet is isolated from the
neutral conductor.
n If local codes do not permit the connection of a neutral
ground wire to the neutral wire, see “Optional 3-wire
connection” section.
n A 4-wire power supply connection must be used when the
appliance is installed in a location where grounding through
the neutral conductor is prohibited. Grounding through the
neutral is prohibited for (1) new branch-circuit installations,
(2) mobile homes, (3) recreational vehicles, and (4) areas
where local codes prohibit grounding through the neutral
conductors.
If using a power supply cord:
Use a UL listed power supply cord kit marked for use with
clothes dryers. The kit should contain:
n 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 ends.
n A UL listed strain relief.
If your outlet looks like this:
Then choose a 3-wire power supply cord
with ring or spade terminals and UL listed strain
relief. The 3-wire power supply cord, at least
4 ft. (1.22 m) long, must have three 10-gauge
copper wires and match a 3-wire receptacle of
3-wire receptacle NEMA Type 10-30R.
(10-30R)
If connecting by direct wire:
Power supply cable must match power supply (4-wire or 3-wire)
and be:
n Flexible armored cable or nonmetallic sheathed copper cable
(with ground wire), protected with flexible metallic conduit. All
current-carrying wires must be insulated.
n 10-gauge solid copper wire (do not use aluminum) at least 5
ft. (1.52 m) long.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
For a grounded, cord-connected washer:
This washer must be grounded. In the event of a malfunction
or breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of electrical
shock by providing a path of least resistance for electric
current. This washer is equipped with 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.
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.
For a permanently connected washer:
This washer 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.
