White, green green/white striped they are all the same....only thing you really have to worry about is that you have the red and black in the proper places...
Here is a tip that will help you with changing your dryer plug.
Dryer Cord and Wiring Dryer 3 Wire or 4 Wire
You have to replace the dryer's 3-prong cord to 4-prong. Get yourself a 4-prong cord then on the terminal block at the rear of the dryer, connect the wires of the 4-prong cord to where the same wire colors (red, black, and white) of the 3-prong cord connects to. The only modification needs to be done is on the green/yellow stripe wire that connects from the white wire terminal to the dryer's cabinet. Remove this wire (green/yellow stripe) from the white wire terminal then connect it to the same wire color (green/yellow stripe) of the 4-prong cord and you are done. The new wire configuration would then be red, black, and white on the terminal block and green/yellow stripe wire on the cabinet.
the only difference is that the 4 prong wire has a ground wire,on the block the white wire should be in the middle,the red wire on one side and the black on the opposite side and the green connects to the frame,so yes the white wire will connect to the blue/green combo....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7kgMn5Frt8&feature=related check out this video,it has the blue/green wire you're talking about.hope this helps.
Your new cord has 4 wires. Black, red, white , green. The dryer has 3 lugs to connect to. Connect the white and green to the center lug, connect the red to left lug and the black to the right lug. You are all set to use dryer.
Your four prong cord has 4 wires. Black,Red,Green and White. Remove the 3 prong cord from the dryer. The Black and Red wires go to the outside terminals on the dryer. The White wire goes top the center terminal. The Green wire goes outside the terminal cover to any nearby screw for grounding.
The forth is just a cabinet ground hold the cord flat the one in the middle goes on the white ( the middle terminal in the back the other two do not matter they are both live wires the middle one is the only one that is different
just remember a 3 prong cord the middle wire goes to the middle on the terminal block,the other 2 does not matter there both 120 volt,same if you have a 4 prong,the white wire goes on the middle on the terminal block,the red and black go on each side and the extra green gets mounted to the cabinet,,let me know how you do-mike
red and black wires go to outside screws ..white goes to middle screw..lift green ground wire from screw in cabinet back and either tape off or connect to middle screw on connector ..green wire on cord goes in it's place
