comment LG/Propane Line 3/8 male connector for a Natural Gas Dryer 3/8 female not fitting
Different countries, different allowed products. For example, this product on Amazon is the sort of connector we use in the US.

The steel pipe is good. It's the flexible pipe that I would be concerned about.

Right, I was worried about "The fitting is so close, it feels like it will thread but just doesn't." meaning that you threaded it on somewhat (along with the photograph of the great big wrench). If you used minimal force, it's probably fine.

comment How can I cut and cap a hot water supply line that has no shut-off after the HWT?
It's also safest to turn off the water heater during this work. Also, if someone opens turns on both the hot and the cold water in a faucet, the cold water could flow the wrong way into the hot water pipes. So, you may want to just turn off all of the water.

comment Where does the ground wire go in a 3-prong dryer cord configuration?
At the end up the update, the answer says "it is simply connected to the neutral terminal and is unused." I believe that it is used. Because the neutral is (hopefully) grounded, this effectively grounds the case of the dryer.

This advice is location-specific. In the USA, we have split phase, with 180 degrees between the lines. Other countries provide 2 (of three) phases with 120 between them. In this sort of area having 120 V supplies, there would be 208 V between the two phases.
