Hot tub/Spa

I am moving my hot tub away from my house. I am using 6-3wg and was going to use a air conditioner disconnect on the outside of the house as a junction for the indoor to outdoor wiring.
Problem is I have 8 wires and
only 6 connections/blocks on the disconnect--4 hot and 2 ground
What do I connect the whites or grounds to?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Connect the 2 White wires directly together and throughly insulate the connection.

Could you please specify the type of cable that you are using?

I am assuming that the hot tub will be on the exterior of the house, if so the cable MUST have an insulated ground, not a covered ground as in non-metallic cable.
