Insert the dryer cord in the 3/4" hole provided by the manufacturer. It is in close proximity to the electrical connection box. Insert the cord into the hole and remove the three connection screws by turning them counterclockwise.

The cord is set up with three connections, just like the connection on the dryer. The outer two connections are the hot connections and the center is for the neutral/ground connection.

Insert the mounting screws into the wire terminals and connect them to the machine. Turn the screws clockwise until they are tight. Be careful not to over-tighten because this could cause them to strip out.

Caution! Be sure not to connect the neutral wire to the hot connection terminals and also, do not connect the hot wire to the neutral connection. See the photo for proper connections.
