Ok here is the rule of thumb,the middle wire on a 3,goes to the middle, or white wire always goes on the middle terminal of the block,the black and red does not really matter there both 120 volt but if you can see the wires on the termial block match them up,the green wire gets mounted with the other green wire to the cabinet and your done,let me know how you do-mike

The green wire from the cord connects to the frame of the dryer. If you make some other connection, be sure it is to the frame, not some othe part.

Need to change the power corrd to a 4 prong from the 3 prong but the 3 prong cable isnt color coordinated, how do I hook up the new power cord?

The new cord has a green ground wire; two hot wires, which are black and red; and a white neutral wire. Attach the neutral to the middle connector and the two hot wires to either end of the terminal.
In order to safely ground the machine the green ground wire must be securely connected to the dryer frame. There may be a screw on the frame where you can attach the ground.

I need to convert a 3 prong dryer cord to a 4 prong

Hi. Ok, with the rear terminal block cover open, you will see three wires. Black on one end, white in the middle and red on the other end. Use your 3/8′ nut driver to remove the nuts or a Phillips screwdriver to remove the bolts (depending on your dryer) and remove each dryer cord wire from the terminal block. When you remove the nuts or bolts, be careful not to drop them down into your dryer. Next, you need to disconnect the bonding jumper on your dryer. The bonding jumper is either a metallic strap (typically copper or copper clad) or a green wire that is connected between your dryer’s neutral (white wire) terminal and the green ground screw connected to your dryer’s frame. If you removed a ground wire instead of a bonding strap from the neutral terminal, you need to connect this ground wire to your dryer’s frame. Loosen the screws at the connector and pull the cord out. Now thread your new cord through the connector and tighten down. This only needs to be snug do not over tighten. Sometimes the old connector will work with the new cord and sometimes not. If not, your new cord will include a connector that you may use. Now,to hook up your new 4-wire dryer cord, connect each wire to the dryer’s terminal block matching color for color (white to white, black to black and red to red). Connect the green wire to the green ground screw on your dryer’s frame. Once the wires are connected, simply recover the space, and secure the cove with the screw provided.

I need to change from a 3 prong to a 4 prong cable. The receptacle on the dryer (Roper heavy duty) only has 3 cables which are color coded red white and black. The new 4 prong cable has an extra green...

the green wire is just a ground,as long as it's touching any metal on the frame of the dryer you're ok,put the wires the same way white in the middle,red on one side black on the other,on the back inside wall where the block is that your wires are connecting to there's a green ground wire in there that you can remove the screw that holds it on and also connect the new ground wire with it or like i said you can remove any screw that's close to the block and ground the wire there as long as it's grounded to the frame of the dryer

Changing from 3 to 4 wire hookup on a electric dryer:
Power cord help for 3 & 4 prong dryer cords
This is an example of a three wire connection dryer cord hookup. Notice that there is a ground strap connected from the common center terminal to the frame of the terminal block. Place the center wire of the cord on the center terminal [ one with the ground ******** it ] and the other two wires will be placed on the outer terminals and it doesn't matter which wire goes right or left. Get the center wire of the cord right and you are in business.
This is an example of the 4 wire dryer cord hookup. Notice that the ground strap has been removed from the terminal block frame and folded back onto the center terminal for storage. You can see the colors of the other hookups. TIP: White always to the middle.

Below are a few websites.

Changing my dryer cord from 3 pronge to a 4 pronge. how do i hook the cords to the baqck of the dryer. brand name is a frigidaire

on 4 wire, red and black is hot, white is neutral and green is ground. On terminal block out side terminals are hot and center is neutral, ground connects to green screw on cabinet. if your current connection has a white or green/yellow jumper on the ground term move this to the center/neutral connection with the white wire. only wire to be on gnd term in gnd wire. hot does not matter which side as long as it doesnt touch anything else and not on center term.
Difference in 3 and 4 is a dedicated ground, on 3 wire dryer was grounded through the neutral.
