Kenmore Dryer

5 posts in this topic

Okay I've read the section on changing the electrical cord and it was most helpful. However it didn't quite answer the question that I have. On my Kenmore there is a green wire with a yellow stripe that is already running to the dryer case/screw. When I add the new 4 prong cord I have to run the green ground wire to this same case/screw.... so what to I do with the green wire with the yellow stripe thats already there?? I've heard that I may need to run it to the center silver tab with the white wire, is this correct?

THANKS!

You can either remove the original ground wire from the dryer case and terminal block or just loop it back onto itself on the center post to secure it out of the way incase you need to convert the dryer back to the 3 prong cord if you move and will not lose it that way.  Pegi
