washing machine not grounded

we just purchased a washing mackine that has a grounding wire hanging out of the back, seperate from the power cord. I am not sure how to attach this (where to attach it to?) but have gotten shocked a couple of times and it was most unpleaseant! Thanks!!!

Is this a brand new washing machine? You should not be getting shocked, even without that wire connected to anything. You may have a defective machine.

No, it is a used machine we purchased from a friend- she did not have this problem, and she did not have the grounding wire hooked up...
