A 4 wire cord should be hooked up accordingly:
1. Black wire to either outside terminal post.
2. Red wire to the remaining outside terminal post.
3. White wire to the center terminal post.
4. Green wire to the frame screw.
Also, make certain that your breaker/fuse box is wired according to local codes. If your dryer is not properly grounded through the fuse box and the green wire is attached to the frame then, a ground wire would need to attach to the green wire and then to an earth ground. This could possibly be your 5th wire, but you need to investigate it before applying power to the dryer.

The green is the safety ground, it goes to a contact that is directly connected to the body of the dryer. A dryer cord is usually a flat thing with the wires that have lugs crimped on them. Usually the power wires are black, and the neutral wire is white. It's usually difficult to put it on wrong, so if it goes easy, it's probably right.

This is a common question we receive and a common mistake most every general contractor makes that we work with.
With a 3-wire system your neutral terminal will have a copper clad or aluminum strap or green wire connected between it and the frame. You need to remove this when changing to a 4-wire cord.
Terminate the wires from your new 4-wire cord as black to black terminal, white to white terminal, red to red terminal and green to ground screw on frame. This is the other end of that strap or green wire you need to remove from the white (neutral) terminal.
When changing to a 4-wire cord it is very important to remove the strap or wire that connects between the white terminal and the dryer’s frame. If you do not remove this, your neutral or grounded conductor will allow electricity to flow through your dryer’s frame and shock you each time you touch your dryer.

*First ; before starting unplug unit or shut off breaker.
you should be able to match up color for color on your dryer, the fourth wire, green (ground) screws to the chassis, or cabinet. if your wires aren't coded as you say, it is red, white and black, left to right. see picture I've supplied.
hope that helps

red and black are the 2 power phase wires and go on L1 and L2 terminals or on an inline power block the 2 outer terminals(polarity)doesn't matter,then white is the center or N-neutral terminal, then green or green/yellow stripe is chassis safety ground and is connected to the metal frame of the unit
