Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
Just moved, new house (rental) uses gas but I have a Kenmore electric dryer. Should I install/have installed the 4-prong assembly my dryer needs or trade the dryer on craigs list for a gas dryer?
I have gas dryer need trade for electric one.

Thanks for all the input! We reached a compromise in hiring an electrician who was willing to come out today and install the connection for half what everyone else quoted...on a Sunday! The laundry piling up in the corner was very persuasive in convincing us that your advice (in the end, we'd need a professional no matter which way we went) was prudent. Thanks. jersey p

The green wire attaches to the dryer cabinet. There should be a green screw in the cabinet for attaching the wire. If not, you can always drill a hole for a ground screw.
The loose green wire you see is the reason the code was changed to a 4-wire cord.
