Samsung dv22n6800hw dryer power cord screws missing.
« on: December 07, 2019, 07:38:32 PM »

So we purchased a Samsung dv22n6800hw dryer used and upon installation discovered the 3 screws for the power cord were missing.  We are having trouble finding what type of screws to use.  It seems like 10-32 screws are the most common.  Will standard zinc machine screws work for this purpose.  Any help would
Be greatly appreciated.

You can always bend the post of the ground block back and take the ground block out and remove the Square 1/4 flat fine thread nut that sits inside the block and take it to a Big Box store and match up the nut to the bolt but make sure it sits back in block flat o Cec you replace it after you find the correct bolt. Most importantly it MUST be tight when you place the plug on it. Failure to tightened it all the way will result in burnt wire / burnt block or worse. Dryer could not heat or turn on also with improper tightening of the block nuts and bolts.

Go back where you got it and tell them you want the screws.

They might be 10-32, but TBH, I'm not certain. A lot of Samsung parts are metric.

If you get 10-32 screws and they don't screw in easily, don't force them
