Since you have no power at all, get yourself a "tic tracer" It's a tracer commonly used by telecommunications people for tracing wires. You can use it to trace every circuit and outlet as long as ther is no power to them. It's battery operated and sends a tone over the wires. Then you have the receiver which allows you to find the tone therby locating it. $30-$100.

NO! An older dryer circuit would be either SEU cable, or black, white and red with no ground.
If you have a dryer with black, white and ground, it was NEVER legal or correct.

Missouri Bound...Funny, I was wondering if they made something like that. I figured there had to be something out there. P.S. I'm a Missouri boy myself! Grew up around Buffalo north of Springfield.
