use the ground on the machine.....There are 3 wires on the terminal block if you notice there is a grounding strap off the center post this will act as your ground to the machine back in your panel box the center post leads to ground anyway the other 2 are hot leads (240vac) use the 3 post you will be fine. you will be grounded let me know if you have any problems

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

DO NOT CHANGE THE POWER SUPPLY CORD.
you can't change the power supply cord.
the cord came with the dryer is 240v. the three prong is 120v. the dryer will burn up. if you change the power cord without changing the regulator , motor, and the heating element.
you need to get a electrician to run a 240v double breaker from the panel to the dryer.
