SOURCE: REPLACING DRYER 4 PRONG PLUG

This is common issue. Due to some building codes the 3-prong configuration is no longer used in homes. The wiring is similiar with one exception. The 4-wire plug uses an additonal (WHITE) NEUTRAL wire.

Here's a brief explanation of how the plugs are configured:

Dryer 3 prong wire configuration:

RED - 120 VAC
GREEN - GROUND
BLACK - 120 VAC

Dryer 4 prong wire configuration:

RED - 120 VAC
GREEN - GROUND
BLACK - 120 VAC
WHITE - NEUTRAL

BOTH plugs provide the SAME source voltages to your appliance:

220 VAC - provided across the RED and BLACK leads are what drives your heating circuitry.
120 VAC - usually tapped of the BLACK wire is used to run the drive motor and timer on MOST dryers.

The wire terminal block in the back of the dryer should have a black, white, and red wire running to it from the dryer wiring harness. With the 4 prong plug, simply attach the BLACK, WHITE and RED wires at the terminal block ensuring that you match the RED and BLACK wires as they are configured and attach the WHITE wire at the remaining terminal lug. Make sure you screw them all down securely. Attach the remaining GREEN wire to chassis (dryer frame) ground. I hope ths helps you.

SOURCE: Wall plug is 3 prong, dryer is 4 prong...is there an adaptor available?

The following link explains the wiring scheme for 3 and 4 prong power cords. I know the instructions are for converting from a 3 to a 4 prong, but if you look under the "Additional Notes" section it explains how to convert back to a 3-prong if you are currently using a 4-prong.

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

SOURCE: Changing an Electric Dryer’s Power

Black and red wires go to the outside terminals. (either way, just so one is on each) and the white goes to the center terminal. If your cord does not have color coded wires and is one of those flat wire types, just make sure the center wire goes to the center terminal. If the 4 wire cord had been properly installed the installer would have removed a wire or metal strap which connected the center terminal to the dryer's frame. Make sure you have this is place to ground the frame of the dryer to neutral.
