Default replacing Kenmore Washer power cord to ground it, change angle of cord
Model Number: KAWE560WWH3   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have a Kenmore washer with a power cord that has the grounding prong on the outlet plug MISSING so it is not grounded! The washer works FINE, but I want it safe, grounded. Also the plug's cord now is 90 degrees, down and interferes with the dryer (GE space saver 120V 15 amp 3 prong standard plug, not a "dryer plug" ) so they can't be plugged into the same outlet!! So I need to :
1. Replace the washer plug with a new cord that comes straight out (versus downwards) with grounding!!
2. Make sure it is going to work, fit the terminal slide-in at the back of the washer.
Not that the in-kind expensive "kenmore washer " cord replacement has a plastic end piece with the 3 wire terminal in a wider translucent white block (terminal end, not the recepticle end) see http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/whirlpool-power-cord-item-number-ap3138837.aspx .

I found was a whirlpool/kenmore replacement that has the cord coming out the plug (not at 90 degrees). It is much cheaper but it has a 2 wire (white/black neutral/hot) and the ground wire outside of the 2 wide terminal slide-in block. It is:

Part Number: AP4027317 made by Whirlpool
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/whirlpool-cord--power--as-wrapped--item-number-ap4027317.aspx

Can I USE THIS one and then put the ground wire on the ground slot/terminal? How do I get this to work????

The other "standard" replacement I found elsewhere has the same green ground wire with the ring, and the 2 wire white slide in block at the end:

So how do I put it the replacement power cord with the narrow slide in block, loose round wire??? HELP
