fast help ~ changing 3 prong dryer pigtail to 4 prong
Got a call from my son, who is off at college and is attempting to change a 3 pong dryer pigtail to a 4 prong. He has the wires in the correct position (black and red wires are on either side of the center white wire.) However, the grounding screw is stripped and he cannot unscrew it to attach the grounding wire. He also tried loosening the screw with pliers, to no avail!
Can he ground the wire to another (unused) screw on the back of the dryer? He is waiting for me to return with an answer, so I hope someone is on the board this afternoon.
