The hot wires connect to the outer 2 connections the power terminal block of the dryer, does not matter which is which as long as one hot is connected to each of the outer terminal connectors.The center wire (neutral wire) of the cable goes to the center connector.In the example in the picture the dryer doesn't have color designation on the wires, follow direction above; if the dryer cord does have colored wires, white is the neutral wire to the center connector, the red and black wires are the hot live wires which connect to the 2 outer connections of the dryer terminal block, don't forget the ground strap or green wire jumper from the center connector to the dryer frame.Note: All new dryer circuit/receptacle installations must be grounded, which means you would be using a 4 wire dryer cord with a new circuit install.The bare wire should also be grounded to the electrical box (if metallic).Be sure to use the properly rated electrical box designed to be used with a dryer receptacle.Since in this case the neutral serves as a neutral and a ground connection, a jumper band (ground strap) is also connected to the center terminal and to the frame of the dryer.

The white neutral wire gets connected to the neutral bus.

DRYER RECEPTACLE & CIRCUIT The breaker used must be a dual (double) 30 amp 220v breaker.

220v breaker meaning that the breaker must be of the type that actually connects to both bus bars in the panel, every other bus lug in the panel is on the opposite phase of the incoming power line. If you were to measure the voltage between a red lug and a black lug (they are not really those colors in the panel, just used here for explanation purposes) , you would measure 220v, if you were to measure between a black bus lug and a ground or neutral bus, you would measure 110v, and the same would hold true if you measure between a red bus lug and the ground or neutral bus.

Description: Tinned copper strands braided into a flat construction and insulated with PVC.

These constructions may be fabricated of bare copper, although tinned copper is generally preferred because of its resistance to corrosive elements and ease of flexibility.
