I moved my Kenmore natural gas dryer a few feet back, and noticed a green
wire, connected to a grounding pipe, hanging from the wall.
The end had been, may have been just hanging inside the dryer, not
connecting to anything, but I am not sure.
The dryer is connected to a standard 3 prong power outlet, and the green off
of the power cord *IS*
connected to the dryer frame via an external nut. --
This "extra" green wire that I'm concerned about was definately not
connected to the external grounding screw.
So .. anyone know what this "extra" grounding wire is all about? Should I
attach it to the grounding screw on the exterior of the dryer? Or was there
somewhere inside the dryer that it WAS connected to, but is no longer? This
extra wire could have been from a previous dryer that was there. Any harm
in attaching TWO grounding wires to the external screw?
Again, the dryer power cord has a ground, and is connected. So I got that
going for me.
Thanks in advance.
