I have been looking online on how to do this, but everything I see talks about an existing white cord for the ground. Here's where I'm at. enter image description here

The wires in front is the new cord, and in the back is how the dryer (Ariston 30616) was set up with the 3 prong cord. Any help?


Here's how I set it up:

And here's the diagram on the dryer:

Can anyone verify that this is correct?

  • Since this is the dryer side of the connection, typically the manual has directions on how to attach both 3 and 4 wire cables to the dryer. Make sure to follow those.

Looks correct. You connected Red and black to L1 and L2, white to Neutral, and green to Ground. Also, you removed the jumper between N and G.

  • It's strange. I cut the power, plugged it in, and threw the power back on... Nothing happened. I did remove the ring terminals from the wires, as the one cord used open wires, but they're all securely fastened. Anything else that I might've done incorrectly?

  • No idea what might be wrong. If you own an ohm/continuity meter, you could check for connection between the plug terminals (unplugged, of course) and the terminals at the top of the strip.

    Good news, it was the outlet that was disconnected.
