use the ground on the machine.....There are 3 wires on the terminal block if you notice there is a grounding strap off the center post this will act as your ground to the machine back in your panel box the center post leads to ground anyway the other 2 are hot leads (240vac) use the 3 post you will be fine. you will be grounded let me know if you have any problems

DO NOT CHANGE THE POWER SUPPLY CORD.
you can't change the power supply cord.
the cord came with the dryer is 240v. the three prong is 120v. the dryer will burn up. if you change the power cord without changing the regulator , motor, and the heating element.
you need to get a electrician to run a 240v double breaker from the panel to the dryer.

Always disconnect electricity before beginning this process.
All the 4 wire cords I have seen are color-coded. The white wire goes to the middle terminal, the green wire goes to any screw you can reach that goes into the metal case of the dyer. The red and black go to the outside terminals of the block and while it doesn't matter which color goes to which terminal I usually follow the color code of the interior dryer wiring that already exists. Good Luck.
