Washing machine is 3prong, coinop is 2prong? Won't start!

Postby bertbarndoor » Sun Aug 30, 2009 9:01 pm

Hi, I ordered a coinop power controller from wave future to work on a washing machine. The plug to accept powered items is 2 prong while the washing machine is 3 prong (grounded). I tried jamming the plug on without the ground and the washer started filling, but it would not agitate. Ideas? Did wavefuture send me the wrong coinop power controller? Please help. -Rob

The default is 3 prong, you can change it to 2 prong by using an 3 prong extension cable.

I also thought that a coin operated washing machine is two prongs. I don't know the explanation but a regular washing machine is three prongs. If there is any fault with it then, you can go back to the store where you bought it and ask them to fix it.

For more info: washer and dryer

Nothing wrong, just use 3prong to 2 prong adapter or plugs
