That's what I figured was next.
I tried testing voltage at the outlet but the probes don't seem to make contact. Alternatively, I tried testing the contacts at the dryer. But, I'm not sure if I did it correctly because the readings seemed REALLY odd.
layout is like this
1 (green) - 2 (black) - 3 (white) - 4 (red)
I set the multimeter to 200v DC for testing.
I tested 2 & 3 and then 3 & 4. My understanding, based on what I've read/viewed is I should get about 120 for either. I was getting like 79 and 50 something. again, unsure if I was doing it correctly.
Then I tested 2 & 4. Again, based on what I've read and seen on YouTube, the reading should be 240. I'm getting like 194-197.
I'm not sure if it's the multimeter or me.
Question question, should the green wire on the power cable connect to the green wire on the dryer...the one on the dryer is mounted against the back of the dryer..so I know that's ground. I wasn't the one to pull the back off the dryer so I can't attest to weather or not those two were connected originally. I would have thought they were.
