Accidentally cut tinned part of neutral wire on dishwasher

I was installing a new dishwasher for my son yesterday and I accidentally cut the tinned part of the white neutral wire off.

I re-stripped the wire showing copper strands which I then twisted together and proceeded to connect to the power cord white neutral wire together with a yellow wire-nut making sure it was tight and secure.

The black hot wire was connected in the same way ( didn't cut it thank goodness!)

My question is should I re-tin the end of the white neutral washing machine wire or is it ok to have it secured as I mentioned above. * Leave it be?*

Dishwasher ran thru full cycle last night with no problems. ( No wire nut/wires burnt etc)
Thanks for any help.

You are fine as is. It was tinned just to keep strands together. Some dishwasher does not even come tinned.

Thank you very much!

Really didn't want to go that route for sure.
