 dryer cords
I am replacing a 4-prong dryer cord with a 3-prong. When attaching it to the dryer, it is clear which connection goes to the center of the three, but I am not sure if it matters which ones I attach to the left and right side...

Dear Scott,

A little off the general subject of this helpdesk but we'll give it a try.

I am going to assume that you are talking about an electric dryer which normally uses 220 VAC @ 60 cycles (US Standard). No it does not matter, each side is 110V to the neutral or 220V beteen them.
