Default The fly by nights

She hired a fly by night licensed EC to fix flood damage, he raised all the existing outlets to 30" , cut back the old half size romex and installed blu Carlon boxes and duplex devices....OK. Now she wanted the washer and dryer moved and I got involved thru a GC, I know these houses very well so I knew just at looking at this receptacle something wasn't right. Opening it sealed that deal. Now nothing for nothing, this appliance is on a concrete floor, 6 feet from a sink, I wouldn't have felt that bad if he at least had a jumper from N to G on that outlet.

Is the bonding strap still present at the cord connections at the dryer?

So if the bonding strap is still present, you now have a parallel path on the neutral back to the panel?
