Remove the ground strap from the middle terminal block in the dryer. Attach the white wire to this terminal. Take the green wire and attach it to the frame of the dryer. Attach the red wire to the right hand terminal, and the black wire to the left side terminal.

I have a dryer that has a 3 prong cord however the connection at the wall is a 4 prong outlet. I need to know how to change it.

The following link explains how to convert a 3-prong power cord to a 4-prong:

The main difference is how the Neutral (White) and the Ground (Green or Bare Copper) wires are terminated at the terminal block. In a 4 -wire configuration these wires are independent of each other. In other words, neutral does NOT get grounded.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Frigidaire GLEQ2152ES Dryer Won't Power UP

IF you find that you have only a 3 wire feed for this dryer (and the reason for the 3 prong receptacle)...then you can not properly install a 4 prong dryer cord to it. You now have 2 choices....either rewire (assuming that it is a 3 wire supply) the entire run from the dryer breaker to the outlet location with 4 wire (typically a run of 8/3 with ground having a black, red, white and bare ground)and install a 4 prong dryer receptacle to match the configuration of the new dryers cord.....OR - you can remove the 4 wire cord and replace it with a 3 wire the ground strap - IF it is still in place.

I have a 4 prong power cord coming out of my Kenmore dryer and I have a 3 prong power outlet in my wall. Can I replace the 4 prong cord with a 3 prong cord, and if so, how?

Purchase a 3 prong cord at a home improvement center. and replace your 4 prong cord. all you need is a screwdriver.
