Installing a 4-prong electric dryer by Alfred Leo Pelletier, CMI, HI 36
Orange 10-3 Romex NM-B W/G Wire
Double Pole, 30 Amp
The procedure outlined in the NEC code requiring 4-wire cords for dryers
and ranges results in an electrical modification that separates the ground
from the neutral so that the two are not carried on the same wire. After the
proper installation of a new 4-wire dryer cord, there is an increased margin
of safety from electrical shock.
