Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 8 months ago

ok that is NOT coming up as a good model number.

But I think I can assist you with out it.

On the dryer terminal block you have three terminals an L1 which is normally Black wires .

An L2 which is Red wires .

A Neutral which is White wires.

And the green or chassis ground

So can you send me a photo of the plug end of the cord by chance?

Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 8 months ago

ok Great !

Looking at the plug end of the cord as shown in the photo the far left and right FLAT blades are L1 and L2

L1 is Black wire And L2 is the Red wire.

The center lower L blade is Neutral White

The center top Round blade is Ground.

So now to the rear of the dryer to hook the wires up .

It should have a Black wire from the dryer wire harness on one side of the terminal block ,and the opposite side of the terminal block should be RED .

The center terminal should be White .

So with the cord in place and ready to hook to the terminal black put the Red cord wire on the Red terminal on the terminal block

Put the Black cord wire on the Black terminal; block

The white wire from the cord to the center terminal block .and the you have the green (ground wire) from the left find a screw that is next to the terminal block that screws directly to the metal chassis and remove it and put the green cord wire on the screw.

So then you have Black to Black on one side of the terminal block .The Red to Red on the opposite side of the terminal block ,the white to the white (CENTER) terminal on the terminal block and the ground green to the metal chassis.

It should end up like this .

https://usercontent2.hubstatic.com/5706855_f520.jpg

Now in this photo the red is a light blue but on your model Frigidaire uses Red .Black ,White wires on the terminal block .

And if you have any questions just reply back to me!

Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 8 months ago

the only difference between a three wire and a four wire is you have the green ground wire going to the metal chassis.

If you need me again for any other issues you can request me Whrlp Master Tech.

And Even after you rate me Today if you have a question just reply back to me,
I will still assist you, no extra charges .
But rating me 5 STARS is the ONLY way I get paid for my time.
