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

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.
