Question about GE Profile Harmony DPGT750EC Electric Dryer
What do I do with the green ground wire connected from inside the dryer to the ground connection? All the internet info tells me to reconnect it to the neutral but in their photos it is a white wire and on this machine it is a green wire. Do I leave it connected and also connect the ground wire from my 4 prong plug or do I disconnect it and add it to the neutral connection?
If theres a wire from the center terminal on the dryer terminal board going to the dryer case disconnect it,then Red & Black on the cord go to the outer 2 terminals on the dryer terminal board,the White goes to the terminal in the center between where you put the Red & Black wires this is the Neutral wire,then the Green wire connects to any metallic portion on the dryer case as this is the SAFETY Ground wire and also Red & Black can go on either outer terminal on the dryer terminal board as these are not polarity sensitive because its A.C. power so wire it on the dryer terminal board as in (RED-WHITE-BLACK) on the dryer terminal strip and connect the GREEN to any Metallic portion of the dryer case

The following link explains how to properly install a 4-wire power cord to your appliance:
The main difference between a 3-wire and 4-wire configuration is how the ground and neutral wires are terminated.
In a 3-wire configuration the wires are terminated together at the terminal block via a ground strap.
In a 4-wire configuration the two wires are independent of one another. Match the corresponding colored wires at the terminal block and attach the ground wire to the ground lug on the equipment cabinet.
I hope this explains it well enough for you. If you still have questions, please let me know.

GREEN is always ground if you are going by United States wire color code. BLACK is HOT and is carrying 120VAC on it. RED is the other HOT lead. If you are attempying to convert from a 3-prong cord to a 4-prong, the following link explains how:
The main difference betwen the two configurations is how the Neutral (WHITE) and the Ground (GREEN) wires are terminated at the terminal block. In a 3-wire configuration neutral and ground are terminated together via ground strap. In a 4-wire configuration, these two wires are independent of each other with no ground strap. Neutral is terminated with neutral and ground gets terminated to the equipment cabinet.
Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps you.
