Samsung Dryer - Connect the electrical wiring

Last Update Date : May 09. 2018

Electrical requirements

The wiring diagram is located on the plate under the control panel or rear frame.

The dryer must be grounded. In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, the ground will reduce the risk of electrical shock by providing a path of least resistance for the electrical current. An individual branch (or separate) circuit serving only your dryer is recommended.

A 120 volt, 60 Hz AC approved electrical service with a 15-ampere fuse or circuit breaker is required for gas models. A 120 / 240 volt, 60 Hz AC approved electrical service fused through a 30-ampere fuse or circuit breaker on both sides of the line is required for electric models.

Note: The provided information refers to appliances sold in Canada. The available settings and options may differ for devices sold in other countries.

First, read through the “Electrical requirements” section, in the user manual, and then follow these steps:

1 Loosen or remove the center terminal block.
2 Connect the neutral wire (white or center wire) of the power cable to the center, silver-colored terminal screw of the terminal block. Tighten the screws.
3 Connect the other wires to outer terminal block screws. Tighten the screws.
4 Tighten the strain relief screws.
5 Insert the terminal block cover into the rear panel of the dryer. Then, secure the cover with a hold-down screw

Caution:

 • To convert from the 4-wire system to 3-wire system, connect the ground strap to the terminal block support to ground the dryer frame to the neutral conductor.

 • Ring-type terminals are recommended. If using strap terminals, make sure they are tightened.

First, read through the “Electrical requirements” section, in the user manual, and then follow these steps:

1 Remove the external ground connector’s screw, and connect the ground wire (green or unwrapped) of the power cable to the screw.

Warning: To connect the ground wire to the neutral position without through contact A (cabinet ground), contact a technician. This is not user serviceable.

2 Loosen or remove the screws from the center terminal block.
3 Connect the neutral wire (white or center wire) and ground wire (white) to the center screw of the terminal block. Tighten the screw.
4 Connect the other wires to the outer terminal block screws. Tighten the screws.
5 Tighten the strain relief screws.
6 Insert the tab of the terminal block cover into the rear slot of the dryer. Secure the cover with a hold-down screw.

Caution:

 • If you use the 4-wire system, you cannot ground the dryer frame to the neutral conductor at the terminal block.

 • Remove the terminal block cover plate. Insert the power cord with a UL-listed strain relief through the hole provided in the cabinet near the terminal block.

 • A strain relief must be used. Do not loosen the nuts already installed on the terminal block. Be sure they are tight. Use a 3/8” (1 cm) deep well socket.
