Question about Dryers
There was no grounding strip connected. I attached the grounding cord (green) to the side of the dryer, but nothing happens when I try to turn it on.
Is the white neutral wire connected to the neutral terminal on the dryers power terminal block in the back: it should be (RED to L1 then the BLACK to L2) they can be on either terminal as 2 power wires are not polarity sensitive, then as i said WHITE to the N or NEUTRAL terminal and the GREEN safety ground to any metallic point on the dryer,then check for a nominal 240 volts a.c. on the RED & BLACK terminals

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

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.
I don't quite understand what was wired how but the wiring should be as follows:
For a 4 prong plug and matching outlet
1. Black wire on one end terminal of choice.
2. Red wire on remaining end terminal.
3. White wire only, on the center terminal
4. Green wire on the the dryer frame or chassis terminal.
For a 3 prong cord and matching outlet:
1. Black wire on one terminal end of your choice.
2. Red wire on the remaining end terminal.
3. White wire on the center terminal.
Always be certain that the wire in the breaker or fusebox match the wiring of your outlet.

this is the rule of thumb,white always goes on the middle terminal ,the 2 outside terminal wires it does not matter which side they are on,if you can see the red and black wire on the terminal block then match them up,the green wire gets mounted to the cabinet,you should already have a green wire to the cabinet so remove the screw and put both wires there and your done,let me know how you do-mike
